Canon Europe announces the launch of three new large format printers – the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF830, iPF840 and iPF850 – to bring reliable, precise and productive printing to architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), reprography and Computer Aided Design (CAD) environments.
The new devices deliver best-in-class functionality and performance to the high-volume print market. The upgraded system architecture delivers fast and continuous printing with the ability to replace ink tanks during print jobs and deliver speeds of up to 42 seconds for A0 plain paper in economy mode.
At the same time, the imagePROGRAF iPF850 improves efficiency and usability thanks to a high-capacity stacker that can hold up to 100 sheets of different sized paper (up to A0), making it quick and easy to collect documents by ensuring that they are not curled. The iPF840 and iPF850 support dual roll to easily handle different types and varying widths of paper up to 44”, 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.
Businesses that require eye-catching prints, such as indoor poster and point of sale printing environments, will also appreciate the addition of the latest High Chroma magenta ink for enhanced colour reproduction and more vibrant results.
“The printing of detailed drawings and plans represents a necessary part of everyday workflow for CAD users and in architecture, engineering and construction environments in particular,” commented Yuichi Miyano, Director, Wide Format Printing Group, Canon Europe. “High-volume, continuous printing is a fundamental tool for these businesses and needs a powerful and dependable large format printer. The new imagePROGRAF models deliver speed, accuracy and colour vibrancy, making them ideal for both print-for-pay and print-for-use environments.”
The new series also offers substantial cost savings over time, which is especially important for high-volume environments. The three printers feature low ink consumption, high capacity 700ml ink tanks and a built-in accounting function allowing accurate tracking of the cost per print.
The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF830, iPF840 and iPF850 will be available across Europe from May 2015.
