New printers from Canon
Canon has introduced two new imagePROGRAF printers that are designed to support sign and print businesses that need efficient and easy-to-use CAD and display graphic solutions.
The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF670 (24″ / 610mm) and Canon imagePROGRAF iPF770 (36″ / 914mm) both feature faster print speeds, improved ink management and faster, more reliable image processing. Both models can now print an A1 equivalent image in 28 seconds in the fastest print mode, while HP-GL/2 and HP-RTL support facilitates more flexible and reliable CAD file handling. The iPF770 is also available as an MFP, with an optional large format scanner and 22″ touchscreen display attachment.
New inks deliver an increased colour gamut specifically intended to print more vivid reds for clarity in CAD drawings and indoor point-of-sale signage, while two black pigment ink tanks supplement the standard dye inks for richer, sharper blacks, while making it easier to mark-up CAD artwork without smearing the print. The ink tanks are hot-swappable, and can be replenished mid-print without wasting either ink or paper.
Other new features facilitate an improved workflow before and after printing and accounting software makes it easier for small businesses to manage costs and margins and a print utility for Apple iPad enables mobile users to view and print files straight from their mobile devices. Finally, a new stand design enables easy switching between a basket or flat-stacking print output.
Both models are available to order from February 2015.
