Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office
This utility makes it easy to print large-format documents created in Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. The Plug-in appears in a toolbar inside the Microsoft application and has an easy-to-follow “Wizard”. The Plug-in will bypass the printer driver to simplify the printing process. A few simple steps convert your 8.5″ x 11″ office document to poster size.
Canon’s L-COA (Large Format Printer Common Architecture) print controller is the “brain” that powers the printer’s data. This unique, high-speed processor drives the print engine to lay ink down with high-precision and helps ensure optimal image quality and color accuracy.
Precision Printing High-Density Print Head
Engineered for speed and advanced image production, this large format color inkjet printer boasts Canon’s latest print-head technology to lay down ink with unprecedented speed and accuracy. The new PF-03 print head incorporates a new nozzle shape to reduce satellite ink, producing cleaner lines and text, and minimizing mist. The high-precision, high-density print head, with a total of 15,360 nozzles, lays down 4 picoliter-size ink droplets that produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The result is consistently accurate 2400 x 1200 dpi output with fine lines that are accurate to Â±0.10% and as thin as 0.02mm.
Economy Print Mode
Reduce total ink consumption by utilizing the Economy Print Mode for producing draft prints on select media. This imagePROGRAF iPF510 inkjet printer feature regulates the use of all inks to produce quick check plots while minimizing the cost per print.
Reactive Ink System
Ideal for technical – as well as office – applications, Canon’s breakthrough 5-color dye/pigment Reactive Ink technology utilizes four highly colorfast dye inks for producing bold, expressive color, plus two channels of matte black ink for printing precise lines, smooth curves, and small text on technical and office documents. These Canon inks allow the imagePROGRAF iPF510 wide format printer to provide superior adhesion to media, scratch and marker resistance, and ensure minimal “bleeding” between colors and text. Even small text printed on colored backgrounds or on uncoated technical papers is crisp and legible.
With the Canon HDI Driver for AutoCAD application, the driver creates a vector graphical representation of the imagePROGRAF iPF510’s 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.
