Reactive Ink Technology
Ideal for technical applications, Canon's breakthrough 5-colour dye/pigment Reactive Ink technology utilizes four highly colourfast dye inks for producing bold, expressive colour plus two channels of matte black ink for printing precise lines, smooth curves and small text on technical and office documents. These Canon inks provide superior adhesion to media, scratch and marker resistance and ensure minimal "bleeding" between colours and text. Even small text printed on coloured backgrounds or on uncoated technical papers is crisp and legible.
High Density Print Head PF-03
Engineered for speed and advanced image production, the iPF605 boasts Canon's latest print-head technology to lay down ink with unprecedented speed and accuracy. The iPF605 uses a high-precision, high-density print head with a total of 15,360 nozzles to lay down 4 picoliter-size ink droplets to produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The superfine 4 picoliter-size droplets produce delicate colour gradations and high-definition. The twin lines of nozzles on the print head enable the iPF605 to minimize the number of printing passes and still maintain print quality. More nozzles mean more ink is ejected with every pass of the print head, no matter what print mode or media.
With the Canon HDI Driver for AutoCAD application, the driver creates a vector graphical representation of the printed data. Here points are defined and a curved line is calculated mathematically in order to achieve precision. The HDI Driver creates a graphically accurate drawing of the printed data.

Canon's L-COA (Large Format Printer Common Architecture) print controller is the "brain" that powers the printers' data. This unique, high-speed processor drives the print engine to lay ink down with high precision and helps ensure optimal image quality and colour accuracy. This processor enables the print system to process large volumes of data while optimizing output of complex high-colour GIS images and architectural renderings for maximum readability and colour accuracy.
