Canon's imagePROGRAF iPF815 Large Format Printer is a high-capacity roll printer designed to handle heavy workloads. Created with the technical documents market in mind the 44" wide iPF815 outputs full-color renderings with precise detail. GIS maps, CAD, MCAD, and ECAD drawings and documents are just a few examples of the caliber of printing the imagePROGRAF can handle. The included media basket catches prints during long runs, and an optional stacker can be purchased for offloading prints and handling exceptionally large jobs.

The iPF815 has a built-in 160GB hard drive and on-board support for HP-GL/2 and HP RTL to keep the work moving, while Canon's L-COA processor enables print speeds up to 688 feet per hour. L-COA allows for precise, fast lay down of ink that optimizes readability and color accuracy. Canon's Reactive Ink system puts down a beautiful 5 color dye/pigment that features 2 channels of matte black ink. Creation of fine lines, scratch and marker resistance, and minimal bleeding are just a few of the benefits of this ink technology. The ink is applied via Canon's high-density print head. This print head has 15,360 nozzles that put down 4 picoliter-size ink droplets for 2,400 x 1,200 output and accuracy.

Other proprietary Canon features include the Accounting Manager function. This function allows you effectively manage printing costs and data by tracking how much ink and paper are being consumed, recording the job name and owner, recording the number of completed pages, and many other options. This data can be exported to a .csv format for Microsoft Excel - to help you track and keep your costs under control. In addition to the Accounting Manager, you can also make use of the economy print mode. This mode reduces ink consumption, bringing down the total cost of printing across the board.

Canon's Printer Driver keeps work moving along with a number of features. Windows and Mac drivers provide accommodations like one-touch borderless printing, expanded color settings, and page setup options, while Real Preview ensures the print settings are correct with a real time preview. Another useful feature, imageRUNNER lets you transfer data from a Color imageRUNNER device to the imagePROGRAP at the touch of a button. In addition to these functions, PosterArtist Lite puts the power to create posters in your control with just 4 steps and HDI Driver for AutoCAD creates graphically accurate drawings of printed data.

Productivity: Print Longer without Interruption
Canon's unique sub-ink tank system means you can replace ink on-the-fly without stopping the printer. Choose extra large 700ml ink tanks for even greater productivity. For long print runs, a high-capacity media basket comes standard with the iPF815.

Add the optional high-capacity stacker for even greater print yields when printing on plain paper. The optional stacker provides a flat surface to offload prints and eliminates the need for operator handling. Built for high productivity, this stacker automatically picks up documents of mixed document sizes and stacks them up to 300 sheets

High-Speed Printing: L-COA Processor
Canon's advanced system architecture achieves print speeds up to 688 ft/hr on uncoated media. When you need to keep projects moving forward and meet deadlines, this kind of speed is critical. Output two D-size (24 x 36") drawings per minute or print a full color, 2,400 x 1,200 dpi high resolution A0 size image with full graphic coverage on heavyweight coated paper in only three minutes. Powering these incredible print speeds is Canon's L-COA processor, at the heart of every imagePROGRAF printer

The L-COA (Large Format Printer Common Architecture) print controller drives the imagePROGRAF print engine to lay down ink with exceptional speed and precision. This unique, high-speed processor enables the print system to process large volumes of data while optimizing output of complex high-color GIS images and architectural renderings for maximum readability and color accuracy

Precision Printing: High-Density Print Head
Engineered for advanced image production, the iPF815 boasts Canon's latest print-head technology to lay down ink with unprecedented speed and accuracy. The iPF815 uses a high-precision, high-density print head with a total of 15,360 nozzles to lay down 4 picoliter-size ink droplets that produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The result is consistently accurate 2,400 x 1,200 dpi output with fine lines that are accurate to ± 0.10% and as thin as 0.02mm
160GB Hard Drive
A built-in 160GB hard drive within the printer increases productivity by relieving workload from the host PC, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage, and retrieval. This 160GB hard drive enables job data to be stored in protected mailboxes for easy access via web browser or at the printer for job re-printing. The embedded hard disk is ideal for medium to large workgroups to share a printer efficiently with multiple users, offering ample job storage space
Accounting Manager
The Accounting Manager serves as a powerful feature, used for accurate management of printing costs and other information that is increasingly important in today's economic environment. With the Accounting Manager feature you can track how much ink and paper is being consumed when printing large format output. Costs can be assigned to the ink and paper to determine expenses based on your own "cost of goods". Each individual ink tank can have its own cost associated to it, as well as a variety of different paper types. The user can also input a variable cost that will be added to the total of the print cost. The data is exportable to a .csv format for Microsoft Excel so the data can be used for billing purposes. This feature will allow you to determine the cost of each print based on your actual cost

Features include:

  • Log recording time
  • Job name
  • Job owner
  • Client job ID
  • Client job submission time
  • Job completion time
  • Job completion state
  • Ink consumption per job

  • Number of completed pages
  • Media consumption area per job
Economy Print Mode
Reduce total ink consumption by utilizing the economy print mode for producing draft prints on select media. This feature regulates the use of all inks to produce quick check plots while minimizing the cost per print
Reactive Ink System
Ideal for technical applications, Canon's breakthrough 5-color dye/pigment reactive ink technology utilizes four highly colorfast dye inks for producing bold, expressive color, plus two channels of matte black ink for printing precise lines, smooth curves and small text on technical and office documents. These Canon inks provide superior adhesion to media, scratch and marker resistance and ensure minimal "bleeding" between colors and text. Even small text printed on colored backgrounds or on uncoated technical papers is crisp and legible
HDI Driver
With the Canon HDI Driver for AutoCAD application, the driver creates a vector graphical representation of the printed data. Here, points are defined and a curved line is calculated mathematically in order to achieve precision. The HDI driver creates a graphically accurate drawing of the printed data

  • Print type setting
  • Print quality settings
