New – LUCIA PRO pigment ink & 1.28” wide print head

 

LUCIA PRO pigment ink is newly developed for the imagePROGRAF PRO series to deliver printing with a wide colour gamut, excellent colour expression, superior dark area reproduction, low graininess and good gloss characteristics.

The new imagePROGRAF PRO series fully integrated print head enables even faster printing in 8-colours with exceptional print quality. A compact 1.28” wide, enabling efficient, high-precision ink ejection without discrepancies.

Double-speed printing

 

The four key colours (C, M, Y, K) are arranged symmetrically further improving the new print head, providing a good balance between high quality and fast printing. Practical poster quality can be produced at up to double speed compared to current imagePROGRAF 8-colour series models.

Dual roll unit

 

An optional dual roll unit can be added, providing either additional paper roll or as a media take-up unit for printed output. Media take-up can be performed with the printed surface either on the inside or on the outside.
