Canon launches two new printers

Canon has announced two new aqueous ink wide format printers. The ImagePrograf iPF670 and iPF770 are 610mm and 914mm wide respectively. Both are five colour machines aimed at the CAD and display graphics markets.

Both models can print an A1 equivalent image in 28 seconds in the fastest print mode, while HP-GL/2 and HP-RTL support allows for more flexible and reliable CAD file handling. The iPF770 is also available as an MFP, with an optional large format scanner and 22ins touchscreen display attachment.

They use new inks that allow for an increased colour gamut intended to print more vivid reds for clarity in CAD drawings and indoor point-of-sale signage. There are two black pigment ink tanks to supplement the standard dye inks for richer, sharper blacks. The ink tanks are hot-swappable, and can be replenished mid-print without wasting either ink or paper.

Canon has also thrown in accounting software to help customers manage costs, and a print utility that allows iPad users to view and print files. Both will be available next month.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
