Reactive Ink Technology

Developed especially for printing CAD and business documents, Canon’s proprietary Reactive Ink Technology controls the reaction between pigment matte black ink and dye colour ink to prevent blurring along the edges of text characters and lines. When combined, 5-colour dye inks and pigment reactive inks create clear, crisp black output, even where ultra-fine black line drawings and / or text appear next to colour, such as in CAD drawings or graphs.

4 media-feed methods

The imagePROGRAF iPF510 allows 4 media-feed methods: roll, cassette, top-loading manual and front-loading manual – to meet all your printing needs. Media up to 1.5mm thick can be inserted in the front-loading manual feed while the cassette is able to hold 250 sheets of plain paper, to give you further freedom of choice. Simple printer drive operations also allow efficient switching between media options with just one button.

High-speed processor

One single chip, the L-COA, is Canon’s leading edge in high-resolution printing – developed to process large volume image data at breathtaking speeds. It simultaneously controls printer operations, printheads and the ejection of colour inks to ensure the high-speed processing of business documents, CAD drawings, posters and other high volume data, so you get the finest quality with no delay.
