New large format Canon printer due in April

Canon U.S.A has introduced the 12-color imagePROGRAF iPF5000 pigment ink large format printer that sports a new Lucia inkset features red, blue, green, gray, photo gray, cyan, photo cyan, magenta, photo magenta, yellow, regular black, and matte black pigmented inks.

The printer loads all 12 ink tanks at once and utilizes automatic switching between regular black and matte black, helping to eliminate wasted ink and time swapping out ink tanks, according to Tod Pike, senior vice president, Imaging Systems Group, Canon U.S.A. The imagePROGRAF iPF5000 model uses Canon’s new dual print head design that has a total of 30,720 ink nozzles. The iPF5000 printer employs 2,560 nozzles per color for a maximum resolution of 2400×1200 dpi (dots per inch) and a four picoliter droplet size.
