Reactive Ink Technology
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
High Density Print Head PF-03
Engineered for speed and advanced image production, the iPF605 boasts Canon's latest print-head technology to lay down ink with unprecedented speed and accuracy. The iPF605 uses a high-precision, high-density print head with a total of 15,360 nozzles to lay down 4 picoliter-size ink droplets to produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The superfine 4 picoliter-size droplets produce delicate color gradations and high-definition. The twin lines of nozzles on the print head enable the iPF605 to minimize the number of printing passes and still maintain print quality. More nozzles mean more ink is ejected with every pass of the print head, no matter what print mode or media
