Canon iPF8400S 44” Production Color Printer

The Top-Selling Wide-Format Graphics Printer

The Canon imagePROGRAF 8400S is our best-selling wide-format plotter/printer at WAB Paper Supply. The iPF8400S is an 8-color professional production printer, unrivaled in print quality and speed among its peers. This printer was built for photographers, proofers and production artists for maximum productivity without sacrificing image quality.

The iPF8400S features a built-in 250GB hard drive, 384 MB of buffer RAM and Canon’s exclusive L-COA image multiprocessor, which does the work of several processors on board a single chip.

These features combine to provide seamless printing of multiple large-volume projects simultaneously.

Manage Job Costs to the Penny with Advanced Accounting Application

Managing job costs has never been easier than with the iPF8400S’s pre-loaded Accounting Manager program. Provide accurate billing and internal accounting, and keep track of high-cost projects for future budget planning.

The Accounting Manager application tracks the volume of ink (within a 15% accuracy tolerance) and media consumed per project, along with job completion time. When you input raw materials cost, Accounting Manager will automatically calculate the cost of goods consumed per project. Users may also choose to include a “variable cost” which will be added to print cost total.

These figures are easily exported into CSV format for Microsoft Excel on a per-project basis.

8-Color Pigment Printing for Professional Output

The Canon imagePROGRAF 84002 is compatible with Canon’s archival-quality LUCIA EX 8-color pigment array. LUCIA EX pigment cartridges are available in either standard 330ml volume per color, or optional 700ml volume per color to reduce downtime due to low ink.

LUCIA EX pigment-based inks provide museum-quality durability and vibrancy along with the glossiness of dye-based inks.

The 8-color system combines standard CMY print pigments with Photo Cyan and Photo Magenta, Black and Matte Black as well as a mid-tone Gray. LUCIA EX pigment ink produces the darkest blacks available in a large-format production printer.

Undeniable Quality and Cost Controls from our Most Popular Production Printer

The iPF8400S is the indisputable workhorse printer for graphic designers and production printmakers worldwide. This printer will streamline workflow while simplifying project cost management, auditing and budgeting.
