Key features of the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF760
The iPF760 36”/A0 large format printer features Canon’s unique 5-colour dye and pigment reactive ink system which produces the sharpest, thinnest lines and the new magenta ink makes the red gamut even better. Designed specifically for CAD & GIS applications, a minimum line width of 0.02mm can be achieved with a range accuracy of +/- 0.01%. This unique formulation improves ink adhesion to the media and minimises colour bleeding. This means clearer text, smoother curves, and sharp fine lines even on uncoated technical papers. Using reactive inks also improves scratch and marker resistance so prints are far more durable than those printed with conventional dye inks.
The iPF760 produces 2400 x 1200 dpi and produces A0 Draft prints in just 48 seconds. Canon’s L-COA image processing technology combined with Gigabit Ethernet compatibility ensure stunning high speed reproductions on everything from architectural plans to geographic information. The iPF760 includes file processing power of 256Mb and Hot Swap ink tanks allow ink cartridges to be replaced during printing for maximum productivity. Borderless printing technology keep you more productive as there is no need for offline trimming and Auto Skew Correction enables unattended printing by automatically adjusting for any skew in orientation and feeds the paper/media correctly.
Designed for practicality and usability, the iPF760 is designed to fit comfortably in any AEC or CAD environment. A compact, slim-line design with a front-loading paper system and a front access ink tank system means you can change paper and ink easily even when printer is installed in a tight space or against a wall. A large, bright, menu-driven LCD control panel gives easy access to sophisticated functions. The integrated Flat Stacker Basket can neatly stack A1 and A2 plain paper prints, instead of letting them curl up in the bottom! A handy print timer lets you know how long a job will take to complete.
The iPF760 includes an enhanced administrator mode for those work environments which require increased security and confidentiality. New interface settings are designed to increase security and allow administrators to password lock the printer, restricting access and supporting a print log management in network environments.
Additional information and specifications
The iPF760 is economical and efficient, with built-in accounting software, allowing accurate tracking of the cost per print, enabling the ability to view the data through the print driver or export it to a CSV file for use in your own files or systems. An Economy mode can be selected which uses less ink, ideal when printing draft documents. Canon’s eMaintenance software automatically detects and manages mechanical problems and low ink levels, linking directly to a Canon Service Centre for maximum up time. Borderless printing technology keep you more productive as there is no need for offline trimming and Auto Skew Correction enables unattended printing.
The printer driver flexibility of the iPF760 enables seamless integration with the way you work. The iPF760’s enhanced compatibility with HP-GL/2 and HP-RTL handles large vector files and nesting. Enhanced HP-GL/2 compatibility includes the ability to set palette and pen settings and auto-rotation for the most demanding CAD workflows. An optimised driver for AutoCAD is also included. The Print Plug-In for Microsoft Office users enables printing directly from Excel, Word and PowerPoint.

Canon imagePROGRAF CAD & GIS (5-colour) wide format printers use a number of advanced Canon proprietary technologies to achieve fine lines, small text and highly detailed graphics produced with incredible accuracy and sharpness.
FINE™ (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) print-head technology for 5-colour imagePROGRAF printers features a total of 15,360 nozzles into a 1” high density print head. Bi-directional printing design of the imagePROGAF printers means print times are significantly faster than conventional print systems which require multiple passes for each line to compensate for uneven droplet size and placement on the paper. An innovative ink-nozzle manufacturing method results in precisely uniform 4 picoliter droplets and outstanding print performance.
Canon’s CAD and GIS (5-colour) range of imagePROGRAF printers feature a 5-colour dye/pigment reactive ink system designed specifically for the CAD/GIS market featuring new magenta ink making reds even more vibrant. This unique formulation improves ink adhesion to the media and minimises colour bleeding. When black ink intersects with coloured ink (for example, words printed on a colour background) the black and cyan inks induce a chemical reaction that prevents black from bleeding into the colours. This means clearer text, smoother curves, and sharp fine lines even on uncoated technical papers. Using reactive inks also improves scratch and marker resistance so prints are far more durable than those printed with conventional dye inks.
The CAD & GIS (5-colour) range of imagePROGRAF printers utilise two types of black ink for the best possible results on all types of media. For photo-type a black ink (BK) is used and for high contrast prints on matte paper, a matte black (MBK) is used. This process ensures smooth graduations across every media type and is highly efficient as the relevant ink is automatically selected for each media type.
Canon’s advanced L-COA (Large Format printer Common Architecture) image processor delivers faster high-quality output and print optimization. L-COA helps your printer carry out the most complex print jobs – where files can often exceed 200MB – with ease.
