Dye/Pigment Reactive Ink Set
The 5-Colour ink set (cyan, magenta, yellow, black, and matte black) found in the imagePROGRAF iPF670E printer is ideal for a variety of different applications including posters, and technical documents. This ink technology utilizes four highly colourfast dye inks for producing bold, expressive colour, plus two channels of pigment matte black ink for printing precise lines, smooth curves and small text on technical and office documents. Canon inks provide superb adhesion to media, scratch and marker resistance and help ensure minimal "bleeding" between colours and text. Even small text printed on coloured backgrounds or on uncoated technical papers is crisp and legible on an imagePROGRAF printer.
The iPF670E printer supports 90ml size ink tanks (cyan, magenta, yellow, black, matte black).
Sub-ink Tank System
Canon's Sub-Ink tank system allows virtually all of the available ink in a tank to be used before having to replace it, helping eliminate any wasted ink. The empty tanks can also be replaced on-the-fly without stopping the printer. This is extremely useful during long print jobs.
Economy Print Mode
The Economy print mode helps reduce the total ink consumption. This feature regulates the use of all inks to produce quick check plots to help minimize your cost per print.
Precision Printing: High-Density PF-04 Print Head
Engineered for speed and advanced image production, this printer boasts Canon's print head technology that lays down ink with exceptional speed and accuracy. The PF-04 print head incorporates a nozzle orifice shape to help minimize mist spray, producing clean lines and text. 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 0.02mm.
