Canon brings range of entry-level ImagePrografs to UK market
Canon UK has released two new wide-format machines for the AEC and CAD markets. The 0.9m iPF770 MFP L36 and the 0.6m iPF670 MFP L24 are designed for entry-level and small workgroup users.
The new printers use a five-colour pigment and dye inkset to reproduce a wide colour gamut. The extra black channel enables accurate renderings of CAD diagrams, technical documents and posters. Canon believes that the compact nature of the engines, coupled with their multi-function printing capabilities, make them ideal for AEC professionals.
The L36 and L24 feature scan-to-network and scan-to-USB features, allowing users to operate without the printer being directly connected to a PC. Scanning quality can be adjusted manually and advanced image adjustment settings are available for CAD designs that need to be printed in high detail.
"There will always be a demand for scanning and copying drawings in CAD operations," comments Matthew Faulkner, European marketing manager, wide-format group at Canon Europe. "Our aim at Canon is to understand the specific requirements and pain points of our customers and respond with effective solutions that meet all of their needs.
"The new imagePrograf models are specifically developed for smaller businesses that want all the functionality and flexibility of a robust multi-function device, combined with real simplicity and a compact size. They provide the tools to work collaboratively, making the reviewing and sharing of documents more efficient and straightforward – a particularly important factor in the AEC industry."
