Canon's large-format iPF600 printer released

14 June 2007

Pinnacle Micro was recently named the sole distributor of Canon's large-format range of printers. As part of the agreement, the company will play host to Canon's iPF600.
The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF600 24-inch large-format printer produces colour, full bleed posters, line drawings and documents quickly and easily. This 24-inch output will impress clients and colleagues by communicating visual layouts with exact lines, bold text and dynamic colour.
"This printer employs a new 5-colour dye/pigment reactive ink meaning text is sharper, line drawings are clearer and posters are brighter," says Cobus Erasmus, Canon product manager at Pinnacle Micro. "These newly developed dye-based inks feature fade resistance in black, cyan, magenta, yellow and Canon's matte-black pigment inks.
"These new dye-based colour ink formulations and matte-black ink combined with reactive ink technology produce black lines and texts that have a resistance against rubbing, moisture and bleeding.
"Also, this printer switches the appropriate black ink type according to the type of media and type of image, producing rich dark black on glossy media using dye-based black, while matte-black is used to print on matte surfaces, including bond paper for crisp, detailed line drawing with laser-like precision. This results in sharp, think lines and high density black for CAD line drawings, as well as vivid colours and solid image consistency with sharp text for quality signs and posters and general office."
The L-COA Controller - the brain of the iPF600 - provides the perfect compatibility between high quality prints and high speed printing for each job. The L-COA controller alongside the 5-colour dye/pigment reactive ink is exclusively designed to drive the best quality output at the highest possible speeds.
The variety of media plus the inclusion of five printing/application software programs provides the versatility and flexibility needed for this printer to be used in a wide variety of industries and applications all in one captivating package.
