The imagePROGRAF iPF815 MFP from Canon is a complete print and scan-to-copy/file/email solution designed to meet the demands and accuracy for CAD and other design-based applications. The printer uses Canon's 5-tank ink cartridge system with a 15,360-nozzle printhead to produce documents up to 36.0" wide on a wide range of media. The printer's high dpi, small 4.0 pl ink drop, and ±0.1% line accuracy is ideal for producing detail-oriented technical documents such as CAD drawings and maps, as well as borderless posters, photos, and prints.
The unit has its own 32 GB dedicated file processing memory as well as 384 MB of RAM. Even when printing large, complex documents printing and scanning won't slow down your computer. In addition to a USB connection, the printer includes an Ethernet interface so you can easily share the iPF815 with your entire team. The printer's powerful software suite helps you get the most out of your iPF815 with media management tools, automatic media switching, page nesting, preset document profiles, and color adjustment. Even though the printer can handle large complex documents, it's still easy enough to print standard documents, photos, and posters from any computer on the connected network. The large 130-ml ink tanks translate into a lower cost-per-print regardless of the size of your document.
Having a scanner and computer interface built into your CAD printer facilitates scanning and copying large CAD drawings, as well as documents, posters, and photos. The integrated LCD panel provides the ability to scan, copy, and edit documents right on the iPF815 without the extra step of transferring the file to a computer.
The built-in 160GB hard drive is perfect for storing scanned as well as commonly printed files so you can print files not only from your computer, but also from the printer itself. Additionally, storing files on the printer itself means that other users connected to the printer can access shared files from their own workstations.
