  • 1Description
The 24" imagePrograf iPF655 from Canon is a highly versatile and flexible large format printer, engineered for speed and advanced image production. The iPF655 maintains a space-saving design and is easy to operate. This printer's high speed, built-in 80 GB hard drive relieves workload from the host PC, provides a large capacity for print job data storage and retrieval, and combined with its precision printing, makes it an ideal selection for medium to large workgroups. The device features print job accounting capabilities, a Reactive Ink System, and gigabit ethernet support. Specially designed to meet the demands of the Geographical Information System (GIS); Computer-Aided Design (CAD); Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC); Reprographics; and other Technical Document markets, the iPF655 produces a diverse range of outputs from complex technical documents to spectacular full-color posters, faster and easier than ever before.

This exceptional printer has built-in support for HP-GL/2 and HP RTL files, standard and HDI printer drivers, and a Microsoft Office Print Plug-in which together create a printing solution for a wide variety of applications. The included PosterArtist Lite creation software enables simple posters and large format prints to be used in Office Presentations, Trade Shows, Signage and a wide variety of other professional printing needs.

Precision Printing
Canon's PF-04 print head features a new nozzle shape to reduce satellite ink, producing cleaner lines and text, and minimizing mist. The high-precision, high-density print head, with a total of 15,360 nozzles, lays down 4 picoliter-size ink droplets that produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The result is consistently accurate 2400 x 1200 dpi output with fine lines that are accurate to ±0.10% and as thin as 0.02 mm.
L-COA Processor for High Speed Output
Powering the iPF655's incredible print speed is Canon's L-COA (Large Format Printer COmmon Architecture) print controller, which enables Canon's high-speed PF-04 print head. When in fast mode, the iPF655 can produce a 24 x 36" drawing in approximately 28 seconds. In a busy working environment, this helps to facilitate workflow and meet deadlines
Reactive Ink System
The iPF655 utilizes four highly colorfast dye inks (CMYK), including a new Magenta ink for richer and more vivid Reds, plus two channels of Matte Black pigment inks which are used for maximum black density and speed. The printer will automatically switch between Regular Black and Matte Black inks at the time of printing. Simply choose the paper type and the iPF655 will use the appropriate black to optimize print quality.
HDI Driver
The Canon HDI 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 a graphically accurate drawing of the printed data. .
80 GB Hard Drive
A built-in 80GB hard drive within the printer increases productivity by relieving workload from the host computer, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage, and retrieval. This 80GB 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 job storage space.
HPGL-2 and HP RTL Support
The iPF655 has built-in support for HP-GL/2 and HP RTL files.
Printing With Less Interruption
With Canon's revolutionary ink tank system, you can replace ink cartridges without stopping the printer. For long print runs, a high-capacity media basket comes standard with this printer. And its highly durable self-propelled dual rotary cutter allows for even faster printing of multi-page jobs.
Print Job Accounting Manager
A time saver for any printing environment, this user-friendly professional feature has a management tool to keep track of costs and track print jobs by user to calculate ink and media costs, and the number of pages printed.
Environmentally Conscious Space-Saving Design
Canon has redesigned this outstanding printer to provide an environmentally-conscious design featuring fully front-accessible operations for efficient operations, and flush wall installation. From loading paper to navigating through an intuitive control panel, the iPF655 simplifies large format printing. Made with less plastic, and reduced CO2 emissions, this model has earned ENERGY STAR qualification, and draws only 140 watts of power during use.
Economy Print Mode
The Economy Print Mode for producing draft prints on select media reduces total ink consumption. This feature regulates the use of all inks to produce quick check plots while minimizing the cost per print
Plug-in for Microsoft Office
Printing large-format documents created in Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint is made easy with this plug-in that appears in a toolbar inside the Microsoft application. Conversion of 8.5" x 11" office document to posters is a simple process.
PosterArtist Lite
Canon's included PosterArtist Lite poster creation software was designed to help users at all levels to quickly and easily create professional large format posters, banners and signage. A variety of templates are included in the software package such as hi-res royalty-free images and clipart, providing creative options for a wide variety of printing requirements.
