The iPF785/780 and iPF685/680 printers offer speeds that have never been seen before on previous Canon imagePROGRAF large-format printer models. In their fastest mode (Economy Mode), the 36” iPF785/780 printers are capable of reproducing 24” x 36” Arch D-sized prints in approximately 21 seconds! The 24” iPF685/680 printers can reproduce 24” x 36” Arch D-sized prints in approximately 25 seconds!
A newly formulated Magenta ink helps improve the clarity and vibrancy of red fine lines, text, and images in many technical and poster prints. The color gamut has also increased in the orange to red areas when compared to previous models. From a productivity perspective, the printers now support ink tank sizes of 300 ml to help lower the cost per print. The included sub-ink-tank system allows for users to use all the ink that’s available in a tank before replacement is needed. It also allows for on-the-fly swapping of ink tanks, should one run out during the middle of a print job.
All four models include the flat stacker/basket, previously seen on only the iPF76x Series models. This feature provides the capability to neatly stack up to twenty 24” x 36” plain paper prints and can be enabled or disabled based on user preference.
Also included on the iPF785 and iPF685 models is a 320 GB hard drive, allowing for the storage of up to 500 print jobs, the creation of individual user mail boxes, and improved print processing while falling under U.S. Department of Defense requirements (DoD 5220.22-M).
Enhancements to the line-up of imagePROGRAF software solutions will help improve printing workflow and management.
