Detailed Features

For the finest lines and high quality detailed images

The imagePROGRAF iPF605 is a 5 colour dye/pigment ink 24” large format printer, ideal for printing fine lines, re-creating vivid colours and producing high quality detailed images. With a 2,400 x 1,200 dpi optimal resolution, solid image consistency, high quality text reproduction and, economy printing – makes this printer perfect for the CAD/GIS market.

Outstanding images

The iPF605 features an ink technology developed specifically for printing detailed business documents and engineering applications with fine lines, small text, detailed graphs and tables. This unique formulation improves the ink’s adhesion to the media and minimises colour “bleeding”. Image reproduction is an outstanding 2,400 x 1,200 dpi.

Exceptional speeds at low cost

Exceptional print performance (33 seconds for A1 prints in draft mode) make the iPF605 ideal for producing whatever you need at speed - without needing to send the work to a local print specialist.

Combined with an economy mode you can reduce the ink usage and thereby cut printing costs.

Ideal for specialist CAD applications

Designed for specialist CAD applications the iPF605 is equipped with everything you need for exceptional results. Specialist CAD file formats HP-GL/2 and HP RTL are supported and an HDI driver for Windows is also incorporated. A 256MB memory ensures even the most complex of files can be easily processed and a high performance, high durability cutter is included, bringing a professional finish to all your work.

Capable and easy to live with

An LCD control panel features graphic animations to ensure it’s quick and easy to get to grips with the device – even if you have never handled a large format printer before. Powerful but easy to use software aids the process – so even more complex tasks are easily achieved. Plus, the compact and incredibly low noise output, make the iPF605 the easy to integrate into any environment.
