Canon ImagePROGRAF iPF685

High productivity

Take productivity to the next level with the Canon ImagePROGRAF iPF685, our newest 5-colour printer. Its faster printing speed enables A1 output in draft mode in 25 seconds. While the 320GB hard disk offers more storage space for print job data, including complex or data-heavy files. Empower users with greater efficiency too, with the new shortcut print feature of Direct Print & Share. This utility allows users to create shortcuts to their most-used print settings, then print by dragging and dropping files onto their shortcuts.

Exceptional quality and accuracy

Canon’s 5-colour dye-and-pigment ink system produces the sharpest, thinnest lines. With an accuracy of +/- 0.1% and a minimum line width of 0.02mm, precision is guaranteed. Get more vibrant colours on CAD and GIS drawings, and better quality red text or images for posters and POS, with the iPF685’s reformulated magenta ink, which covers a broader spectrum than ever.

More ink, less downtime

Support high-volume continuous printing, with the iPF685’s large capacity of 130ml/300ml ink tanks. Which can be interchanged according to the frequency of use, and can actually lower your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) due to a lower cost per volume of ink. The hot-swap ink feature also lets you replace tanks during printing. Which gives you continuous output, even on long print runs.

Ready for the cloud

Boost productivity and streamline printing workflows with imagePROGRAF Direct Print & Share, which lets you print a host of file types without needing an application. As well as PosterArtist integration, the solution allows you to upload and download files for immediate sharing. With easy access even from mobile devices. Printing from an iPad application is also supported.

Economical and efficient

Above all, manage printing costs more easily with the built-in Status Monitor. The Status Monitor’s accounting function collects job logs and automatically calculates costs per job or time period. An economy mode can be selected which uses less ink: ideal when printing draft documents.

Space-saving design

Make better use of your space with the Canon iPF685’s streamlined 24” body, which makes it perfect for businesses wanting high productivity with a lower footprint or those who just prefer a more compact printer.

Built for demanding workflows

The iPF685 is compatible with HP-GL/2 and HP-RTL, and includes the ability to set palette and pen settings for CAD workflows. Bundled software includes an Optimised Driver for AutoCAD, and a plug-in for Microsoft Office that lets you print directly from Word, Excel or PowerPoint.
