Dye/Pigment Reactive Ink Set
The 5-Colour ink set (cyan, magenta, yellow, black, matte black) found in the imagePROGRAF iPF770 printer is ideal for technical applications. 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. Included is a reformulated magenta ink that helps produce a wider colour gamut in the red and orange spectrums, compared to previous models. 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 imagePROGRAF iPF770 printer has the ability to output an A1 (23.39" x 33.11) sized drawing in Draft mode in approximately 25 second6! When you need to keep projects moving forward and meet deadlines, this kind of speed is critical. Powering these incredible print speeds is Canon's L-COA (Large Format Printer Common Architecture) print controller, driving the imagePROGRAF print engine to lay down ink with exceptional speed and precision. This high-speed processor enables the print system to process large volumes of data while optimizing output of complex high-colour GIS images and architectural renderings for maximum readability and colour accuracy.
