Features

The two large paper rolls on the iPF840 allows for immediate switch between different media types or the use of two rolls of the same paper for printing of large, consecutive runs. 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 media basket comes standard with the iPF840 (up to 20 Arch E size prints).

When you need to keep projects moving forward and meet deadlines, speed is critical. Canon's advanced print technology achieves speeds up to 707 ft./hr.2 on uncoated media. Output two D-size (24"x36") drawings per minute or print a full color, 2400x1200 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 pigment matte black ink. The reformulated magenta ink will improve in the printing of 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.

Sharing ideas has never been easier with Canon's Direct Print & Share software. Direct Print and Share is a cloud portal and batch printing solution that helps you to expand your printing workflow. Available as a free download, this software allows you to upload documents to your account using any WebDAV compliant1cloud service, and have these documents printed from almost anywhere. Easily share and/or print .cpfx PosterArtist, PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and HP-GL/2 files, through the user-friendly interface. In addition, you can set-up hot folders on your desktop by clicking the Shortcut Print feature, then simply drag and drop the files you wish to print into these folders and the job will start automatically. You can even set up multiple folders, each with their own customized settings, allowing for multiple jobs to be run with ease.

imagePROGRAF Print Utility is Canon's mobile app for wireless printing via an Apple® iPad® to an imagePROGRAF printer2. Through use of the app, users have the ability to preview their PDF file, utilize some of the great basic settings seen in their Canon Printer Driver such as selecting the number of copies, orientation, and quality, and then send their print to one of the imagePROGRAF 5-Color Printers sharing the same network. imagePROGRAF Print Utility is available for download free of charge through the iTunes® App Store.

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. This feature will allow you to determine the cost of each print based on your actual cost. Features include:
