imagePROGRAF iPF670E Economical Multi-purpose Large Format Device that is easy to use while increasing productivity with fast print speeds and ink tank efficiencies
MELVILLE, N.Y., April 3, 2017 – Offering professional quality printing at a competitive price point, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the imagePROGRAF iPF670E, a new five-color dye/pigment printer. The 24-inch iPF670E model stems from the iPF670 series, with compelling features and specifications to satisfy a broad range of business needs, including the printing of CAD/GIS documents, posters, graphics, and larger sized business documents. Designed to compete in the low-cost, low-volume 24 inch market, Canon’s imagePROGRAF iPF670E offers speeds approximately 20 percent faster than that of the competition.1
“When looking to expand business capabilities, employees must be able to expect premium services and confidently utilize new equipment right away,” said Toyotsugu Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With the introduction of the entry-level counterpart of the iPF670, we are excited to offer a competitive solution for budget-minded customers interested in adding wide-format printing capabilities to their office.”
Designed to increase accessibility for entry-level operations, the 24-inch iPF670E comes equipped with a total of 540 ml of ink differentiating it from competitors that offer less than 100 ml of ink to start with for similar devices. With an increased amount of ink, Canon has helped provide the tools necessary for those businesses entering the large-format market to get their operation up and running. The new iPF670E employs a 5-color dye and pigment ink system with C, M, Y, BK, and MBK. The imagePROGRAF iPF670E offers a competitive advantage of utilizing two types of black ink: MBK for a dense black tone on plain paper and BK for glossy media to enable high image quality for poster printing. Additionally, these new devices offer large 90 ml ink tanks for all colors, more than double that of the competition. The increased capacity of these color tanks will allow printers to stay on track and replace their tanks less frequently.
The imagePROGRAF iPF670E provides users with the high standards of reliability and efficiency that customers can expect from Canon devices. The printer’s hot-swap ink tanks and non-firing nozzle detection and compensation features allow users to swap ink tanks in the middle of a print job without having to worry about ruining the print. In the event that a nozzle clog occurs, the iPF670E automatically compensates for this blockage by taking advantage of another available nozzle, due to the over 15,000 nozzles in the print head. Offering the ability to load larger rolls of diameters up to 5.9-inches compared to that typically offered by the competition, the imagePROGRAF iPF670E is able to help printers get more value out of their operation.
Dialing in on the core features that are essential for convenient use, the iPF670E boasts enhanced usability that allows for high-quality printing through a large ink tank capacity and market leading speeds. In addition to a small footprint for office environment, this entry-level device answers to a variety of business needs at a low cost and simplifies a variety of large-format printing through ample software compatibility.
Available free for download for the imagePROGRAF iPF670E is the following software, not offered by competing devices:
Accounting Manager –Keeps track of your ink & media costs.

Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office – Allows users to integrate directly with core Microsoft applications for streamlined workflow.
