Canon iPF760 and iPF765 Printer Stand and Basket Unit

Since the introduction of Canon iPF650 and Canon iPF750, I found that Canon Inc. has focus alot on the user experience as well as ergonomics in the wide format printer product development especially on the 5-color iPF series.

A part from enhancing the technical specifications, the new model has also improve in the design of the users operations such as paper loading and printed paper collection.

One of the key advantage of Canon iPF750, iPF755, iPF650 and iPF655 is the paper loading. These models feature easy slide in roll paper loading system in which media roll is first placed on top of the printer, then slide in along guide rails. Roll spindle is loaded at point easily accessible from the front of the printer for easy loading from a natural posture.

Canon iPF760 and iPF765 have further strengthen the ergonomics aspect of the design by featuring the new printer stand and media bin where users are able to collect the printed drawings easily without a need to squart down. (Please see below video for details).

The good news is the new design is adopted by the Canon iPF750 version up model now.

Canon iPF750 CAD drawing water resistance test

"Is the printing water proof?"
"Will the ink smudge when my technical documents caught by rain water?"
"How to prevent the CAD drawings from smearing in the rain?"
"I am looking for a wide format printer that produces water and smudge-resistant drawings."

Sounds familiar with the above questions?

A test was being carried in view of the above concerns or FAQs.
Printer brand & model: Canon iPF750
Ink Technology: Canon 5-color dye reactive ink*
*(Canon iPF605, iPF650, iPF655, iPF750, iPF755, iPF760 & iPF765)
Media: 80gram A1 size plain paper

We found the ink did not smear under the condition of soaking into the running water basin. The lines are still clearly visible with no sign of smearing until the paper was tear apart.

Please see video below for details.

In short, the Canon iPF 5-color series running on PFI-102, PFI-104 ink cartridges is capable to produce water resistance technical documents on plain paper. What it takes is just a few simple settings at the printer driver.
