The outstanding media feed system makes loading and switching between different media types easy. The PRO printers can even automatically detect and store media data.
We have to mention the outstanding media feed system, too, because it saves time and effort– trust us, we know how fiddly some machines can load and run!
Thankfully this range boasts automatic roll feeding, which means effortless loading without grubby fingerprints on the media. Plus, a dual-roll system lets you easily switch between different media or use it as a take-up unit when printing longer runs. These PRO printers can even automatically detect and store media data – a lifesaver for those switching media regularly.

What the manufacturer says:
Powerful colour expression from innovative imaging technology
The Canon imagePROGRAF Pro range is all about printing graphics, posters and fine art in high-definition for incredible image clarity.
Junichi Wachi, Director of LFP EMEA at Canon Europe, says: “Five new models are here, delivering outstanding print quality each and every time — and packed with technology that does all the hard work. So you can print smarter, faster and with less waste.”
Utilising 8-12 colour LUCIA PRO pigment inks to deliver a wide colour gamut and enhanced gradation, this range is all about making fast, effective printing accessible. “Thousands of businesses are using the imagePROGRAF PRO Series and our signature LUCIA PRO pigment inks to produce vibrant large format prints for graphics, fine art and photography.” LUCIA inks use microencapsulated colour materials for high performance. There’s also a chromat optimiser available that delivers uniform glossiness, expands colour gamut and makes black colours deeper.
Canon imagePROGRAF PRO cost saving: in-built remaining media estimation prevents wasted ink by telling you exactly how much media you have left, along with borderless printing – which saves you time as there’s no need to trim.
“Print is about getting ideas down on paper. The faster and more easily you do it, the better. We’ve spent a lot of time talking to our large format customers about what slows the process down — what frustrates them. Complicated media handling tops the list. So streamlining the process was a design priority on the new imagePROGRAF PRO printers, increasing profitability and boosting your bottom line.
These models also include auto media type detection - a sensor detects the media, matches
it with an internal database and automatically selects the media type. “This is a great improvement, especially for the PRO-4100S and PRO-6100S, which have been designed with the high productivity print-for-pay market in mind.”
With secure printing, you can restrict print connections and access by setting user security levels and individual passcodes. Smart software - intuitively control pre-print settings on-screen for precision output, with Professional Print
“This is a great improvement, especially for the PRO-4100S and PRO-6100S, which have been designed with the high productivity print-for-pay market in mind.”
Featuring the excellent ‘Professional Print and Layout’ software that will intuitively control pre-print settings on-screen for precision output. It helps you quickly print to your exact specifications, allowing you to showcase your work to the highest level.
“Our thinking goes like this: paper and ink are valuable, so don’t use them until you’re confident that what comes off the printer will match what’s on the screen. Professional Print & Layout is a very clever tool that means prints are perfect the first time round.”
