Canon imagePROGRAF iPF830 44" CAD printer

  • Description

    Designed for the CAD, GIS, poster and production print market

    Fine lines, vivid colours and high-speed printing

    Count on blistering productivity with the iPF830. Designed for CAD/GIS and poster applications in both print for pay and large corporate environments, this 44” printer delivers exceptional line reproduction, vivid colours, high image consistency and features “hot swap” high capacity ink tanks.

    Outstanding quality and accuracy

    Canon’s 5-colour dye-and-pigment reactive pigment ink system produces vivid colours and the sharpest, thinnest lines, and with a range accuracy of +/- 0.1% as well as a minimum line width of 0.02mm, precision is guaranteed. Images are rendered at 2,400 x 1200 dpi for maximum impact, thanks to super-fine print heads using 15,360 nozzles. The latest magenta ink enables clearer drawings and more vibrant posters.

    High productivity

    Exceptional image quality is accompanied by breathtaking productivity, with draft A0 prints in 42 seconds and A1 in just 22 seconds. High capacity 330ml and 700ml “hot swap” ink tanks are used, which can be replaced during production for non-stop productivity, as well as borderless printing to save you time on finishing. An optional large size basket supports high volume continuous printing.

    Economical and efficient

    A built in accounting function allows accurate tracking of the cost per print and the overall cost of your printer and enables you to view the data through the printer driver, or export it to a CSV file for use in your own files or systems. To keep costs low, an Economy mode can be selected which uses less ink, ideal when printing draft documents.

    For demanding CAD/GIS workflows

    The iPF830 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 also features improved device management and security for large workgroups with eMaintenance connectivity, locking control panel and SNMP v3 protocol.

    Easy to use with built in 320Gb HDD

    A built-in 320GB hard disk drive enables mailboxes to be created when using the device across multiple users, for example in busy corporate environments. Ease-of-use is furthered thanks to a large, graphical user interface, making operation simple.

    Full software support

    For streamlined print workflows the iPF830 is cloud ready and includes support for Direct Print & Share, Print Utility for iPad and Océ Publisher Select (from Autumn 2015). It also integrates easily with your office applications with Microsoft Office Plug-in and supports PosterArtist Lite for easy poster production.
