Key features of the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF840
The iPF840 44" large format printer features Canon's unique 5-colour dye and pigment reactive ink system which produces the sharpest, thinnest lines and the improved 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 iPF840 produces 2400 x 1200 dpi and produces A0 draft prints in just 42 seconds. Higher capacity Hot Swap ink tanks now available in both 330ml and 700ml, reduce the frequency of ink replacement, support high volume continuous printing, and reduce the cost per millilitre of ink, reducing total cost of ownership. Hot Swap ink tanks allow ink cartridges to be replaced during printing for maximum productivity. Improved magenta ink expands the colour gamut and produces clearer red text and lines in CAD drawings, architectural renderings, posters and POS displays. The internal hard disk drive in the imagePROGRAF iPF840 has 320GB HDD and 32GB of buffer RAM, offering much more storage for print jobs. Dual rolls easily handle different types and varying widths of paper up to 44" at the same time and features automatic paper switching between rolls to suit print requirements.
Printer driver flexibility for the imagePROGRAF iPF840 addresses the needs of a diverse range of users. The iPF840 includes Direct, Print & Share, the Print Plug-in for Microsoft Word/Excel/PowerPoint and an AutoCAD optimisation module. Print Utility for iPad and Oce Publisher Select will be available from Autumn, 2015.
Canon's Direct Print & Share utility, the popular workflow software bundled with the iPF840, featuring collaboration and printing via the cloud. Print a host of file types without needing an application, upload and download file for immediate sharing, with easy access even from mobile devices. Supporting a broad range of cloud providers, Direct Print & Share contains a 'Shortcut' feature. The 'Shortcut' print feature extends the capability of being able to print without opening files by allowing users to print automatically to pre-defined settings, by just dragging files into a 'Shortcut', which suits environments where automation and centralised control of printing are essential. 'Shortcut' also saves time and effort and allows batch printing of multiple file types. Canon's Direct Print & Share utility allows printing HPGL/2 easily, as well as PDF, TIFF, JPEG, CAD & GIS drawings and general graphics
A Printer Driver Optimization Module for AutoCAD is included with the iPF840, so HP-GL/2, HP-RTL files are easy to print, including the ability to set palette and pen settings, for the most demanding CAD workflows.
Specifications and specifications
Designed for practicality and usability, the 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 optimized driver for Windows is included. It features improved device management and security for large workgroups with eMaintenance connectivity, locking control panel and SNP v3 protocol.
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 flush against a wall. A large, bright, menu-driven LCD control panel gives easy access to sophisticated functions. Prints are automatically stacked and can be collected from a high capacity basket to prevent damage. There's even a handy print timer to let you know how long a job will take to complete. 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.
Manage printing costs more easily with the built-in Status Monitor on the imagePROGRAF iPF840. The Status Monitor's accounting function collects job logs and automatically calculates costs per job or time period. An economy mode can be selected which uses less ink: ideal when printing draft documents. The built-in accounting function allows accurate tracking of the cost per print and the overall cost of the printer and enables viewing of the data through the printer driver, or exporting it to a CSV file for use in other files or systems.
As you would expect from Canon, reliable performance is a given. For added peace of mind, Canon imagePROGRAF printers and print heads feature a 12-month warranty.
There is a complete range of Canon and third party media compatible with the ImagePROGRAF iPF840, available from Design Supply's media specialists whose expertise can help you determine the best solutions for your particular printing needs.
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 resulting in 2400 x 1200 dots per inch (dpi) and outstanding print performance.
Canon's CAD and GIS (5-colour) range of imagePROGRAF iPF830, iPF840, and iPF850 printers feature a 5-colour dye-and-pigment reactive ink system designed specifically for the CAD/GIS market featuring a new high chroma magenta ink, for enhanced colour reproduction and more vibrant results for the indoor poster and POS printing environments. 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.
