The iPF685 24” is also capable of accommodating 300ml ink tanks and a ‘hot-swap’ feature to replace empty ink tanks during a print run. The iPF685 is an affordable, cloud-capable printer in a user-friendly package.

Canon IPF685 Plotter 

The new Canon iPF 685 replaces the venerable iPF 655 and builds on that printers’ impressive suite of capabilities. Like its predecessor, the iPF 685 is a 5-color 24” large format printer. Its streamlined body size makes it a great choice for businesses seeking a high-productivity printer in a more compact size. While the iPF 685 is one of Canon’s more affordable plotters, it is a surprisingly sophisticated unit and more than able to keep up with demanding workflows.A huge point of difference between the iPF 685 and the previous model iPF 655 is in their hard drive capacity. Where the old 655 came with an onboard 80GB hard drive, the iPF 685 is equipped with a 320GB hard drive for even faster file processing, more personal document mailbox space and job storage for up to 500 print jobs.  The additional capacity is especially useful if your output includes complex or data-heavy files. Architectural renderings and CAD drawings print quickly and look great. In fact, the 685 can print an Arch D (24” x 36”) in Economy mode in a mere 25 seconds. With terrific results, we might add!

Canon iPF 685 color printer printing a posterCanon imagePROGRAF iPF685 Better Color, Less Cost

Canon has reformulated their magenta ink for better quality red text and images on posters, CAD drawings, architectural renderings and whatever else you print. Their 5-color dye-and-pigment ink system prints with precision and vibrancy. Because everyone is watching their bottom line these days, the iPF 685 also helps you keep a rein on printing costs. In addition to accommodating 300ml ink tanks for lower cost per print, a sub-ink tank system lets you use all of the ink in the tank before replacing it. Plus, a hot-swap ink feature lets you replace empty tanks during printing. No more shutting down in the middle of a long print run to change ink!

Canon has also made it possible to print to the iPF685 from an Apple iPad. A new downloadable mobile printing app, the imagePROGRAF Print Utility, enables you to print PDFs from your iPad via an internet connection. If your office has incorporated iPads and other mobile devices, you’re going to love the enhanced flexibility the iPF685 enables.

Another new feature of Direct Print & Share that Canon integrated into the iPF 685 is a shortcut print feature that lets you create shortcuts to the print settings you use the most. To print, just drag and drop files onto your designated shortcuts. Now you can batch print multiple pdf, tiff or jpg files without having to open them in their original application.
