Detailed FeaturesTake a more detailed look into the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF840
44” Dual roll paper suppliesDual roll enables maximum productivity. The unit can handle the same width or different widths of paper up to 44”, as well as different types of the paper, such as plain and coated paper, at the same time. It enables automatic paper switching between rolls to suit print requirements, resulting in high production printing without any intervention by the operator for paper changing. A large high capacity basket supports high volume continuous printing.
Fine lines, vivid colours and high-speed printingCount on blistering productivity with the iPF840. Designed for CAD, GIS and poster applications in both print for pay and large corporate environments, this 44” printer delivers exceptional line reproduction, vivid colours and high image consistency.
Outstanding quality and accuracyCanon’s 5-colour dye-and-pigment reactive pigment ink system produces vivid colours and the sharpest, thinnest lines, and with a range accuracy of +/- 0.1% as well as a minimum line width of 0.02mm, precision is guaranteed. Images are rendered at 2,400 x 1200 dpi for maximum impact, thanks to super-fine print heads using 15,360 nozzles. The latest magenta ink enables clearer drawings and more vibrant posters.
High productivityExceptional image quality is accompanied by breathtaking productivity, with draft A0 prints in 42 seconds and A1 in just 22 seconds. High capacity 330ml and 700ml “hot swap” ink tanks are used, which can be replaced during production for non-stop productivity, as well as borderless printing to save you time on finishing. Plus the dual roll enables you to print for longer on different types and sizes of media.
Economical and efficientA built in accounting function allows accurate tracking of the cost per print and the overall cost of your printer and enables you to view the data through the printer driver, or export it to a CSV file for use in your own files or systems. To keep costs low, an Economy mode can be selected which uses less ink, ideal when printing draft documents.
For demanding CAD/GIS workflowsThe iPF840 is designed to integrate seamlessly and work perfectly with the most demanding CAD/GIS workflows. Large files are processed efficiently with enhanced HP-GL/2 support. HP-RTL format is also supported and an AutoCAD optimised driver for Windows is included. It also features improved device management and security for large workgroups with eMaintenance connectivity, locking control panel and SNMP v3 protocol.
Easy to use with built in 320GB HDDA built-in 320GB hard disk drive enables mailboxes to be created when using the device across multiple users, for example in busy corporate environments. Ease-of-use is furthered thanks to a large, graphical user interface, making operation simple.
Full software supportFor streamlined print workflows the iPF840 is cloud ready and includes support for Direct Print & Share, Print Utility for iPad and Océ Publisher Select (from Autumn 2015).
