Cartridges for Canon wide format printers
Our new Absolute Black inks for Canon printers are ideal for printing wide format screen separation films. Inks are supplied pre-filled into ready to use cartridges for all black printing on Canon iPF wide format printers.
Why use Canon printers for screen separation printing?
Until now, the printer brand of choice for screen separation applications has been Epson. However, recent Epson printer models suffer from a much shorter print head life compared to older machines. On average, print heads often fail within three years on new Epson models and the cost of head replacement can run to more than the cost of the original machine. With Canon printers, the print head is user replaceable at a fraction of this cost and takes less than five minutes – replacement print heads simply clip into place. The latest Canon models suitable for screen positive printing have a comparable print resolution and speed, and a lower purchase price. Another advantage of Canon iPF printers is the sub tank design of the ink system. This means that the printer can continue printing for period after a cartridge has reported as empty – very useful when you are trying to finish a print job and don’t have a replacement cartridge on hand. This design also allows cartridge change out while without stopping the printer.
The Canon iPF models we currently support with our Absolute Black inks are the 24" wide Canon imagePrograf TM-200 and the 36" wide imagePrograf TM-300. For more details, click on the link below.
