Canon Canada Inc. launched three new 44-inch, high volume, large format inkjet printers aimed at the architecture, engineering and construction, and Computer Aided Design markets. The five-colour technical document printers feature 15,360 nozzles for intricate full-colour renderings, technical drawings and maps.
In addition to a two-media-roll system, featured in both the imagePROGRAF iPF850 and imagePROGRAF iPF840, the imagePROGRAF iPF850 model features a high-capacity stacker that can hold up-to 100 sheets of different-sized paper (up to A0). Canon explains the stacker neatly gathers newly printed documents to help prevent paper curling and allow users to quickly collect newly printed documents.
The two-media-roll system featured in the imagePROGRAF iPF840 and iPF850 models enable automatic paper switching between rolls to allow for continuous high-production printing. It can simultaneously handle different types and varying widths of paper up to 44 inches.
The new printers feature a 320 GB hard drive, a high chroma magenta ink and Gigabit Ethernet. They also allow users to replace the available high-capacity 700-ml ink tanks during print jobs without pausing production.
The imagePROGRAF iPF840 and iPF830 models are also available as multi-function devices with full scan-to-print, file, and share solutions, and the capability to scan documents up-to-two mm thick. The MFP model includes a Contex scanner, Nextimage MFP software, a computer, touch screen monitor and MFP stand to help meet a variety of office needs.
The printers are also available with PosterArtist Lite and Direct Print & Share cloud portal software (at no cost), which includes a shortcut feature for batch printing and allows files to be dragged and dropped into hot folders on the desktop. The models are also compatible with the imagePROGRAF Print Utility app, allowing print jobs to be managed from mobile devices.
The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of the iPF850, iPF840 and iPF830 printers are $10,295, $8,395 and $6,995, respectively. The MFP Contex model MSRP is $17,955 for the iPF840 MFP and $16,495 for the iPF830 MFP.
