The Canon imagePROGRAF 680

Overview

The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF680 24-inch large format printer builds on Canon’s award winning line of 5-color printers, and provides enhancements in both hardware, and software capabilities. The iPF680 device is capable of producing an Arch D (24” x 36”) print in up to 25 seconds using Economy mode! The printer has the capability of accommodating 300ml ink tanks, geared towards lowering the cost per print. The included Sub-ink tank system allows for users to use all of the ink in the tank before replacing, while also replacing the empty ink tanks on-the-fly without having to stop a job mid-print and sacrifice print quality.
