Learn more about our technical printer line-up

The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF680 24-inch large format printer builds on Canon’s award winning line of 5-colour 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.

From a software perspective, the iPF680 printer comes loaded with user-friendly software solutions that are ready to be used right out of the box. Direct Print & Share, Canon's cloud-based portal solution1, is available as a download and allows for files to be uploaded, downloaded, shared and printed from almost anywhere in the world! Also downloadable is a mobile printing app, imagePROGRAF Print Utility2, allows for PDFs to be printed through use of an Apple© iPad©. The Accounting Manager software allows users to track job costs, while the Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office enables for documents created with Word, Excel or Powerpoint to be printed in large format. And to improve versatility, the iPF680 printer has a Media Configuration Tool which allows customers to optimally utilize their Canon-branded media in creating their desired output.
