Long-lasting results from LUCIA EX pigment ink

The iPF8400SE MFP’s 6-colour LUCIA EX pigment ink works brilliantly on a wide range of paper types, giving you more durable and cost-effective results for mid to long-term display.

Easy to use

Scanning, copying and printing of technical documents has never been easier. At every stage from scanning documents to final output, iPF8400SE MFP is designed to simplify workflow with easy operation. It offers a choice of interfaces, both of which offer a dynamic preview that guides users through every function and process in simple steps: an All-in-One 19.5 inch HD multi-touch screen Windows PC or a 22" LCD Touch screen interface, which requires an external PC.

Designed for practicality and usability

The iPF8400SE MFP is the natural solution for all sizes of workgroup. It is ideal in environments like CAD drawing offices, architecture and engineering firms, or for geographic and mapping projects. This versatile scan and print solution is designed to meet the speed and precision requirements for CAD/GIS with ease-of-operation for all-purpose office projects.

Super-efficient scanning and file handling

Because speed is critical when deadlines are tight, the iPF8400SE MFP scans at up to 13 inches per second. The SingleSensor (CIS) scanning technology has incredible line definition and accuracy, and scans documents up to 42" wide (40" image width), the imagePROGRAF MFP is a versatile imaging solution with the ability to scan and save to PDF, JPEG and TIFF file formats – and share files via Cloud services using Google Cloud. **

Economical and efficient

A built in accounting function allows accurate tracking of the cost per print enabling you to view the data through the printer driver. Economy mode can be selected which uses less ink, ideal when printing draft documents. Canon's optional eMaintenance software automatically detects and manages mechanical problems and low ink levels linking directly to Canon Service.

Exceptional quality and accuracy

SingleSensor (CIS) with bi-directional LED light system can produce exceptional scan quality with accurate, consistent colour and more control over details in the shadows and highlights. Also, the images are rendered at 2,400 x 1,200 dpi for maximum impact from super-fine print heads using 15,360 nozzles when printed.

Built for demanding workflows

The iPF8400SE MFP Solution has an Optimised Driver for AutoCAD and for Microsoft Office users there is a plug-in to print from Word, Excel and PowerPoint. 

Increased robust security

Security has been increased with improved administrative functionality on the user interface. Unauthorised use of the printer and information leaks are minimised through restricted access and supported by print log management in network environments. The imagePROGRAF MFP is an ideal solution for small, medium and large corporations.
