The iPF685 A1 printer (complete with a stand and media bin) offers powerful, high-quality printing combined with exceptional productivity, outstanding accuracy and is also very easy to set-up. It’s compact and space saving. You can print both CAD/Technical drawings or opt to print graphics, posters and presentations (for displaying short or medium term). As with many other Canon models, you are able to hot-swap your inks even while the unit is printing, which reduces wastage. Usefully, you can manage costs and track ROI with powerful accounting tools. The printer is also cloud-ready for immediate sharing, with easy access from mobile devices. You also have the ability to print PDF/TIFF/JPEG/HP-GL2 easily with the bundled Direct Print & Share Utility.

Comparison Check
The iPF685 A1 printer offers enhanced capabilities over the iPF670 (Canon’s entry-level A1 printer) as well as its sister model the iPF680. The print speed is faster at 25 seconds per A1 page and you also have a choice of using either 130ml or 300ml inks, which will give you greater control and flexibility. The other key difference is the memory buffer and hard drive provided on this model – 32GB Buffer RAM with physical memory of 256MB plus a 320GB hard drive (versus 256MB memory). This helps ensure this printer will be far more robust and resilient, and “future proofs” your purchase. While “today” it will give you faster processing time, “tomorrow” it will buffer you against more sophisticated software to ensure your printer can still quickly process anything required of it many years down the line.

CAD/Technical Printing
The iPF685 offers sharp thin lines with a high black density combined with +/- 0.1% line accuracy and 0.02 minimum line width. This accuracy is the best in the marketplace. It also provides you with an easy print plug-in for MS Office applications.

Graphics Printing
This printer offers superb graphics with vivid colours and solid image consistency, with borderless printing (when printing using rolls of paper only). In particular, this printer has a new magenta ink which offers brighter red colours. Canon have also added free PosterArtist Lite software as a bundle deal. The scratch resistant inks on this printer are a combination of dye and pigment based – so it’s one drawback is that the colour inks will fade after time, but it’s an ideal printer where posters or graphics are needed only for a short-medium duration.
