Dye/Pigment Reactive Ink Set

The 5-Color ink set (cyan, magenta, yellow, black, matte black) found in the imagePROGRAF iPF770 printer is ideal for technical applications. This ink technology utilizes four highly colorfast dye inks for producing bold, expressive color, plus two channels of pigment matte black ink for printing precise lines, smooth curves and small text on technical and office documents. Included is a reformulated magenta ink that helps produce a wider color gamut in the red and orange spectrums, compared to previous models. Canon inks provide superb adhesion to media, scratch and marker resistance and help ensure minimal “bleeding” between colors and text. Even small text printed on colored backgrounds or on uncoated technical papers is crisp and legible on an imagePROGRAF printer.
 

High Speed Printing

The imagePROGRAF iPF770 printer has the ability to output an A1 (23.39″ x 33.11) sized drawing in Draft mode in approximately 25 seconds6! 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.

Ink Tanks

The iPF770 printer supports 130ml size ink tanks (cyan, magenta, yellow, black, matte black).
 

Sub-Ink Tank System

Canon’s Sub-Ink tank system allows all of the available ink in a tank to be used before having to replace it, helping eliminate any wasted ink. The empty tanks can also be replaced on-the-fly without stopping the printer. This is extremely useful during your long print jobs.
 

Economy Print Mode

The Economy print mode helps reduce the total ink consumption. This feature regulates the use of all inks to produce quick check plots to help minimize your cost per print.
 

Precision Printing: High-Density PF-04 Print Head

Engineered for speed and advanced image production, this printer boasts Canon’s print-head technology that lays down ink with exceptional speed and accuracy. The PF-04 print head incorporates a nozzle orifice shape to help minimize mist spray, producing clean lines and text. The high-precision, high-density print head, with a total of 15,360 nozzles, lays down 4 picoliter-size ink droplets that produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The result is consistently accurate 2400 x 1200 dpi output with fine lines that are accurate to ±0.10% and as thin as 0.02mm.
