imagePROGRAF iPF770 MFP L36

The Large Format Solutions Division is excited to announce the expansion of their award winning imagePROGRAF Large-Format Multifunction Printer line with the new iPF MFP L Scan-to-Copy/File series.  The two models that comprise the new L-Series are the 36-inch iPF770 MFP L36 and the 24-inch iPF670 MFP L24.  The new L-Series complements the current iPF MFP M40 imaging system line by providing a product that offers basic scan-to-copy capabilities at an affordable price.  Developed to be easy-to-use, the new L-Series Scan-to-Copy/File systems are expanding the market by putting Large Format multifunction capabilities within reach of small offices, low volume and entry level users.  Together, the two iPF MFP series give Canon an unrivaled breadth of large format scan-to-copy/file solutions.
The iPF MFP L-Series Scan-to-Copy/File systems have been designed for a new category of users.  This untapped market includes: those that may not have the expertise to use or need the sophisticated functions of the iPF MFP M40 systems, are currently outsourcing their scanning needs, do not think they have the budget for an MFP or do not have the room to install a large MFP system.   This opens up opportunities for a new customer base which includes: architects, engineers, subcontractors, and consulting firms whose volume might not justify the cost of current MFP systems;  Primary schools, secondary schools and colleges who can take advantage of  applications that range from curriculum based materials, classroom visual aids, fundraising and special events;  Small, professional businesses can benefit from the convenience of having an in-office device, available at anytime, is more economical than outsourcing and has simplicity of operation like that of copying machines.
Opening the market to new users also unlocks the possibilities for upgrade opportunities in the future.  The current iPF MFP M40 series has more functionality and is designed for a much wider range of applications.  Some of the differences between the iPF MFP M40 series and the iPF MFP L-Series include:

  • L-Series includes only printer and scanner (No PC or monitor)
  • L-Series scanners have a smaller range of document sizes & thicknesses
  • L-Series have no preview editing workflow
  • L-Series scanners have slower scan & copy speeds
  • L-Series have lower optical resolution
  • L-Series is available in 24”

These new additions to the MFP lineup are designed as an all in one integrated system, with the scanner connecting directly on the top of the printer.  The new scanners are lightweight, the L24 weighs 11.8 lbs and the L36 weighs in at 16.2 lbs making them easy to install and non-intimidating to the novice user.  The L-Series scanners utilize the same advanced SingleSensor Technology used in the current iPF MFP M40 systems which helps provide consistent color accuracy.  The simple and easy-to-use operation panel incorporated on the scanner offers user-friendly “Green Button” scanning and copying functionality.  The panel comes equipped with picture icons for easy identification of the scanner operations.

The printers included in this series are the imagePROGRAF iPF770 and iPF670 models that feature a 5-Color ink set which is ideal for technical applications, posters, and office signage.  This ink technology uses four highly colorfast dye inks for producing bold, expressive color, plus two channels of pigment matte black ink for printing precise lines, smooth curves, and small text on technical and office documents. Included is a reformulated magenta ink that helps produce a wider color gamut in the red and orange spectrums, compared to previous models. The printer’s sub-ink tank system allows for all of the available ink in a tank to be used before needing to replace it, helping eliminate any wasted ink. The empty tanks can also be replaced without stopping a print job.  A number of important built-in features help minimize ink consumption, media waste, and maintenance costs to help reduce total cost of operation. These features include Economy Print Mode for a low cost per print, auto-rotation, and nesting to minimize media waste.
