imagePROGRAF iPF680 & iPF685
The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF680 & iPF685 24-inch large format printers build on Canon’s award winning line of 5-color printers, and provides enhancements in both hardware, and software capabilities. The iPF680 & iPF685 devices are capable of producing an Arch D (24” x 36”) print in up to 21 seconds using Economy mode! The printer has the capability of accommodating 300ml ink tanks, geared towards lowering the cost per print. The included Sub-ink tank system allows for users to use all of the ink in the tank before replacing, while also replacing the empty ink tanks on-the-fly without having to stop a job mid-print and sacrifice print quality. For increased productivity, the iPF685 printer comes with a 320GB hard drive built in, allowing for enhanced file processing, PERSONAL mailbox space, and job storage of up to 500 print jobs!

High Speed Printing
The imagePROGRAF iPF680 & iPF685 printers have the ability to output a D (24″ x 36″) sized drawing in Economy mode in approximately 21 seconds! When you need to keep projects moving forward and meet deadlines, this kind of speed is critical. Powering these incredible print speeds is Canon’s L-COA (Large Format Printer COmmon Architecture) print controller, driving the imagePROGRAF print engine to lay down ink with exceptional speed and precision. This high-speed processor enables the print system to process large volumes of data while optimizing output of complex high-color GIS images and architectural renderings for maximum readability and color accuracy.

The integrated stacker/basket provides the capability to neatly stack up to twenty Arch D plain paper prints. The stacker basket can be configured as a regular basket, a small stacker or a larger flat-positioned basket.
