High-Capacity Stacker

The stacker provides a flat surface to offload prints and eliminates the need for operator handling. Built for high productivity, this stacker automatically picks up documents of mixed document sizes and stacks them up to 100 sheets.

Two Media Rolls

The two large paper rolls on the iPF850 printer allows for the immediate switching between different media types or the use of two rolls of the same paper for printing of large, consecutive runs. With Canon’s unique sub-ink tank system, you can replace ink on-the-fly without stopping the printer. Choose extra-large 700ml ink tanks for increased productivity. For long print runs, a high-capacity stacker comes standard with the iPF850 printer (up to 100 Arch D size prints).

High-Speed Printing: L-COA processor

When you need to keep projects moving forward and meet deadlines, speed is critical. Canon’s advanced print head technology achieves speeds up to 707 ft./hr.6on uncoated media. Output two D-size (24″x36″) drawings per minute or print a full color, 2400×1200 dpi high resolution A0 size image with on heavyweight coated paper in 3 minutes 37 seconds. Powering these incredible print speeds is Canon’s L-COA processor, at the heart of every imagePROGRAF printer.

The L-COA (Large Format Printer COmmon Architecture) print controller drives the imagePROGRAF print engine to lay down ink with exceptional speed and precision. This unique, 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.

 

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.

 

Gigabit Ethernet Compatible

Printing jobs quick is important on the work site and in the office, The Gigabit Ethernet connectivity will transfer large technical drawing files faster and speed up your workflow, perfect for high-volume printing.

320GB Hard Drive

A built-in 320GB hard drive within the printer increases productivity by relieving workload from the host PC, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage, and retrieval. This 320GB hard drive enables job data to be stored in protected mailboxes for easy access via web browser or at the printer for job re-printing. The embedded hard disk is ideal for medium to large workgroups to share a printer efficiently with multiple users, offering ample job storage space.

 

High Chroma Magenta Ink

The High Chroma Magenta Ink, available for the 1st time with the 44″ 5-color Large Format Printer line, produces a wider color gamut in the red and orange spectrums, compared to previous models.

 

Reactive Ink System

Ideal for technical applications, Canon’s breakthrough 5-color dye/pigment Reactive Ink technology utilizes four highly colorfast dye inks for producing bold, expressive color, plus one channel of matte black ink for printing precise lines, smooth curves and small text on technical and office documents. These Canon inks provide superior adhesion to media, scratch and marker resistance and ensure minimal “bleeding” between colors and text. Even small text printed on colored backgrounds or on uncoated technical papers is crisp and legible.

 

Economy Print Mode

Reduce total ink consumption by utilizing the Economy Print Mode for producing draft prints on select media. This feature regulates the use of all inks to produce quick check plots while minimizing the cost per print.

The Accounting Manager serves as a powerful feature, used for accurate management of printing costs and other information that is increasingly important in today’s economic environment.

 With the Accounting Manager feature you can track how much ink and paper is being consumed when printing in large format. Costs can be assigned to ink and paper to determine expenses based on your own “Cost of goods”. Each individual ink tank can have its own cost associated to it, as well as a variety of different paper types. The user can also input a variable cost that will be added to the total of the print cost. The data is exportable to a .csv format for Microsoft Excel so the data can be used for billing purposes.
