The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF510 is a large format printer that provides for the easy production of photographs and documents up to 17" wide. The iPF510's Reactive Ink System, with a high-precision, high-density print head comprised of a total of 15,360 nozzles, lays down 4 picoliter-size ink droplets that produces sharp detail and excellent image quality. This professional printer uses four vibrant, colorfast dye inks (CMYK) and two channels of pigment-based Matte Black to create striking full-bleed posters, clear text, and crisp line drawings, ideal for use for individual or small user groups.

The included drivers and built-in features allow easy photo printing from digital cameras, simplified page setup options, one-touch borderless printing (with optional roll feeder), and expanded color settings to provide a user-friendly, efficient printing system. Professional large format photos, posters and documents are readily created for a wide variety of uses including, office presentations, trade shows, retail signage, and more.

Reactive Ink System
Canon's Reactive Ink technology facilitates an output of bold, expressive color posters and precise lines, smooth curves, and small text on technical and office documents. The iPF510 utilizes four highly colorfast dye inks (CMYK) plus two channels of Matte Black pigments which are used for maximum black density and speed. The iPF510 will automatically switch between Regular Black and Matte Black at the time of printing. Simply choose the paper type and the iPF510 will use the appropriate black to optimize print quality.
Raster and HDI Driver
The standard (raster) driver incorporates advanced black and white control, simplified page setup options, 1-touch borderless printing (with optional roll feeder), expanded color settings, and much more to provide the most advanced users the tools needed to stay productive, while still being intuitive and easy to operate. 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.
High Speed Output and Precision Printing
Canon's L-COA (Large Format Printer Common Architecture) print controller powers the printer's data. This unique, high-speed processor drives the print engine to lay ink down with high-precision and helps ensure optimal image quality and color accuracy. The L-COA powers Canon's high-speed PF-04 print head, with a total 15,360 nozzles that lay down 4-picloliter size ink droplets. This system produces sharp detail, cleaner lines and text and minimizes mist. The unit has a consistent and accurate output of 2400 x 1200 dpi.
HPGL-2 and HP RTL Support
The iPF510 has built-in support for HP-GL/2 and HP RTL files.
Canon Printer Driver
