The Canon imagePROGRAF GP-4000 Large Format Printer high productivity features include smart roll paper, multifunction roll capabilities, hot swap ink tanks, borderless printing, and a number of other built-in technologies. The smart roll paper is an automatic, accurate media handling feature that takes the guess work out of setting up the printer. Just put the media roll on the feeder, and the GP-4000 loads it automatically, sensing the type and size of the paper and eliminating the chance of a stray fingerprint spoiling the job. The smart paper roll automatically performs paper supply and feeding, detects paper type and width, estimates remaining amount of paper, and adjusts the condition to enable printing simply by placing roll paper in the feed section of the printer. The automation of these high-workload paper supply tasks reduces the workload on the operator, eliminates the need to manually insert the paper into the paper feed slot, and eliminates the need to touch the media surface during paper supply, which prevents adherence of fingerprints and dirt. The imagePROGRAF GP-4000 media handling features front-loading and front output for roll and cut sheet media and can accept a width of 152.4 – 1118mm and thickness of 0.07 – 0.8mm.

The Canon imagePROGRAF GP-4000 Large Format Printer has a number of built-in technologies to enable effortless printing of high quality images which ultimately conserves ink and media. The robust chassis of the imagePROGRAF GP-4000 reduces vibrations, which improves the accuracy of the ink droplet placement. The Auto Skew Correction function guarantees that all types of paper, including thick paper, can be printed without misalignment and enables unattended printing by automatically adjusting for any skew in orientation and feeds the paper/media correctly. The vacuum feeding system keeps paper flat regardless of paper weight and type during printing, which helps ensure accurate placement of ink droplets on paper. The GP-4000 features a standby mode, which will periodically agitate the ink tanks and warms up the print head, keeping ink from drying up inside and clogging nozzles. In the event that a nozzle gets clogged, Canon has a non-firing nozzle detection and compensation system, which turns on back –up nozzles to prevent drop-outs during a print, ensuring highest quality prints every time.
The Canon imagePROGRAF GP-4000 ensures the correct balance and mixture of inks, with precise ink droplet placement, to achieve optimum quality prints at a professional grade by incorporating a new Canon’s L-COA (Large Format Common Architecture) Image Processing System.

The Canon imagePROGRAF GP-4000 has an easy-to-use, 3.5 colour LCD touch screen operation panel which provides clear menu-driven controls for all functions and informs users of the media being used and the remaining print levels, for assured, non-stop productivity. The smart control panel tracks paper usage, tells the user how much paper is left, and if it’s enough to complete the job, eliminating the waste of time, paper and ink.
