Canon has launched two new imagePROGRAF printers aimed at supporting print businesses and in-house print rooms
Both Canon imagePROGRAF iPF670 and Canon imagePROGRAF iPF770 feature faster print speeds, improved ink management and faster image processing.
Both models can print an A1 equivalent image in 28 seconds in the fastest print mode, while HP-GL/2 and HP-RTL support allows for more flexible and reliable CAD file handling. The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF770 is also available as an MFP, with an optional large format scanner and 22-inch touchscreen display attachment.
Yuichi Miyano, director of Wide Format Printing Group at Canon, said, “Canon’s imagePROGRAF range is known all over the world for its quality and reliability. We have listened to our customers to understand their needs as businesses and invested the imagePROGRAF range to support those needs.
“As a result, the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF670 and iPF770 are designed to be the perfect large format printers for growing businesses with a need for standard volume CAD or indoor point-of-sale printing. With easy maintenance, versatile file handling and comprehensive workflow compatibility they are ideal for print service providers or in-house print rooms in architecture, construction and engineering firms.”
The inks allow for an increased colour gamut specifically intended to print more vivid reds for clarity in CAD drawings and indoor point-of-sale signage. Two black pigment ink tanks supplement the standard dye inks for sharper blacks while making it easier to mark-up CAD artwork without smearing the print.
A print utility for Apple iPad enables mobile users to view and print files straight from their mobile devices, particularly suited for construction sites and other architecture scenarios.
