Features

The 5-Color ink set found in the imagePROGRAF iPF785 printer is ideal for technical applications. This ink technology utilizes four highly colorfast dye inks for producing bold, expressive color, plus a channel of pigment matte black ink for printing precise lines, smooth curves and small text on technical and office documents. Also included is a newly formulated magenta ink that helps produce a wider color gamut in the red and orange spectrums, compared to previous models.These 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.


The imagePROGRAF iPF785 printer has the ability to output a D (24" x 36") sized drawing in Economy mode in approximately 21 seconds! It can also produce an E (33.1" x 46.8") print in approximately 41 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 iPF785 printer has a large 320GB hard drive built right into the printer, ideal for workgroups who need to print large files or sets of files from multiple workstations. The hard drive has 32GB dedicated to file processing memory. This gives multiple users the ability to share use of the printer, and allows print jobs to be saved for easy reprinting, helping to simplify the workflow. This hard drive is engineered for enhanced processing of large and complex files such as 3D and GIS drawings, advanced error recovery, and the ability to track file and printing information on up to 500 jobs.


The iPF785 printer supports ink tank sizes of 300ml, along with the available 130ml tanks, with the former helping to lower the ink cost per print. Tanks can also be mixed and matched based on user preference.


Canon's unique sub-ink tank system allows for users to use all of the ink that's available in a tank 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 long print jobs.


Helps reduce total ink consumption when utilizing the Economy Print Mode by producing draft prints on select media. This feature regulates the use of all inks to produce quick check plots to help minimize the cost per print.


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.


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.


Canon's Direct Print & Share software is a cloud portal solution that helps users to expand their printing workflow. Available as a free download, this software gives users the ability to upload documents to their own account using any WebDAV compliant1 cloud service, and have those documents printed from almost anywhere. Easily share a variety of file types and print PDFs, TIFFs, JPEGs, and HP-GL/2 files through the user-friendly interface, and even have the ability to do batch printing! In addition to these features, users can set-up hot folders on their desktop for easy shortcut printing, by being able to simply drag and drop the files they wish to print into these folders and see the job spool automatically. Users can 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, paper 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.

What appears exactly can be selected depending on user preference.


Tracks how much ink and media is being consumed when printing. Costs can be assigned to ink and paper to determine expenses based on "Cost of goods". 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.
