Canon imagePROGRAF iPF685 24 inch A1 Technical and Poster Printer with 32Gb processing memory & 320GB Hard Drive
A quiet, neat, compact, 5-colour printer which offers superb quality printing for both CAD/GIS and posters. This model happily combines quality and economy with crisper results then ever before with its new magenta ink. The added bonus of 'hot swap' ink tanks in a choice of 130ml or high capacity 300ml size ensure productivity without downtime. The 320GB on board hard drive effortlessly handles larger file sizes and high workflow volumes.
The ideal model for any busy work environment needing to send higher volumes of A1 plans, maps, posters and presentations to print. Larger files sizes can be handled by the 320GB memory and frequently printed files can be stored on the printer itself for easy retrieval. For A0 printing to the same standard see the larger 36" (A0) iPF785 printer.
Take productivity to the next level with the Canon iPF685, our newest 5-colour printer. Its faster printing speed enables A1 output in draft mode in 25 seconds, while the 320GB hard disk offers more storage space for print job data, including complex or data-heavy files. Empower users with greater efficiency too, with the new shortcut print feature of Direct Print & Share. This utility allows users to create shortcuts to their most-used print settings, then print by dragging and dropping files onto their shortcuts.
Exceptional quality and accuracy
Canon’s 5-colour dye-and-pigment ink system produces the sharpest, thinnest lines. With an accuracy of +/- 0.1% and a minimum line width of 0.02mm, precision is guaranteed. Get more vibrant colours on CAD and GIS drawings, and better quality red text or images for posters and POS, with the iPF685’s reformulated magenta ink, which covers a broader spectrum than ever.
More ink, less downtime
Support high-volume continuous printing, with the iPF685’s large capacity 130ml/300ml ink tanks, which can be interchanged according to frequency of use, and can actually lower your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) due to a lower cost per volume of ink. The hot-swap ink feature also lets you replace tanks during printing, which gives you continuous output, even on long print runs.
Ready for the cloud
Boost productivity and streamline printing workflows with imagePROGRAF Direct Print & Share, which lets you print a host of file types without needing an application. As well as PosterArtist integration, the solution allows you to upload and download files for immediate sharing, with easy access even from mobile devices. Printing from an iPad application is also supported*.
Economical and efficient
Manage printing costs more easily with the built-in Status Monitor. The Status Monitor’s accounting function collects job logs and automatically calculates costs per job or time period. Economy mode can be selected which uses less ink: ideal when printing draft documents.
Make better use of your space with the Canon iPF685’s streamlined 24” body, which makes it perfect for businesses wanting high-productivity with a lower footprint or those who just prefer a more compact printer.
Built for demanding workflows
The iPF685 is compatible with HP-GL/2 and HP-RTL, and includes the ability to set palette and pen settings for CAD workflows. Bundled software includes an Optimised Driver for AutoCAD, and a plug-in for Microsoft Office that lets you print directly from Word, Excel or PowerPoint.
*Printing from an iPad application will be supported by mid/late 2014.
