Key features of the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF605

The iPF605 24”/A1 large format printer features Canon’s unique 5-colour dye/pigment reactive ink system designed specifically for CAD & GIS applications.  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 iPF605 produces 2400 x 1200 dpi resolution and offers high speed (Draft mode) printing of A1 prints in just 33 seconds.  Designed to provide the quality line rendering and productivity needed for the specialist CAD usage, the iPF605 offers full support for specialist CAD file formats HP-GL/2 and HP-RTL and an HDI driver for Windows applications, enabling seamless integration with the way you work.  In collaboration with Autodesk, Canon has developed an optimised printer driver to further improve productivity for customers using AutoCAD applications.  By adjusting the resolution and the memory utilised, the optimised iPF driver ensures that print jobs are processed efficiently with superb accuracy every time. 

Canon recognise that many users in the CAD & GIS markets are not printing professionals and have incorporated many features to make the iPF605 easy to use and to deliver the best results with minimum effort.  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.  The iPF605 incorporates three media paths, a roll, and two manual feed and a frontloading paper system means paper can easily be changed.  The iPF605 is a multi-user turn solution, supporting multiple operating environments with a network card.  Even the most complex files can be easily processed at high performance with the iPF605 built-in 256MB buffer memory.  A high durability cutter is included, bringing a professional finish to all your work.

More on Canon imagePROGRAF proprietary technologies  

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 imagePROGRAF 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 resulting in 2400 x 1200 dpi (dots per inch) 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 CAD and GIS applications.  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.
