Further Information


Count on blistering productivity with the iPF815. Designed for CAD & GIS applications in both print for pay and large corporate environments, this 44” printer delivers exceptional line reproduction, vivid colours, high image consistency and features “hot swap” high capacity ink tanks.

Outstanding quality and accuracy
Canon’s 5-clour dye-and-pigment reactive pigment ink system produces vivid colours and the sharpest, thinnest lines, and with a range accuracy of +/- 0.1% as well as a minimum line width of 0.02mm, precision is guaranteed - images rendered at 2,400 x 1200 dpi for maximum impact, thanks to super-fine print heads using 15,360 nozzles.

High productivity
Exceptional image quality is accompanied by breathtaking productivity, with draft A0 prints in 45 seconds and A1 in just 24 seconds. High capacity 330ml and 700ml “hot swap” ink tanks are used, which can be replaced during production for non-stop productivity, as well as borderless printing to save you time on finishing. The device also has an optional take-up unit to easily manage large runs.

Economical and efficient
A built in accounting function allows accurate tracking of the cost per print and the overall cost of your printer and enables you to view the data through the printer driver, or export it to a CSV file for use in your own files or systems. To keep costs low, an Economy mode can be selected which uses less ink, ideal when printing draft documents.T

For demanding CAD workflows
The iPF815 is designed to integrate seamlessly and work perfectly with the most demanding CAD workflows. Large files are processed efficiently with enhanced HP-GL/2 support. HP-RTL format is also supported and an HDI driver for Windows is included.

Easy to use with built in 160Gb HDD
A built-in 160GB hard disk drive enables mailboxes to be created when using the device across multiple users, for example in busy corporate environments. Ease-of-use is furthered thanks to a large, graphical user interface, making operation simple.
