Canon Pro Series Dual Roll Media Feeding – How does it work?

The new Canon PRO Series graphics range that has been taking the Wide Format Inkjet printing market by storm recently, is the ability to have two rolls of media simultaneously loaded into the machine, with the printer able to intelligently switch between the two completely automatically, giving you ultimate flexibility and potentially saving several hours every week that would normally be spent just changing rolls of paper the old fashioned way.

When paper is loaded onto the upper roll of the printer (roll 1) an internal sensor recognises its presence after only a few inches of paper have been fed into the machine and then automatically loads the paper, ready for printing. When specified or upgraded to the time-saving dual roll option, the lower roll (roll 2) paper sensor recognises that paper is being loaded and retracts the first roll to a hold position, ready to be re-loaded or switched at any time, making swapping paper simple and painless!
