Add Canon M40 Scanning System to Select iPF Technical Wide-Format Printers

The M40 wide-format document scanning system originally sold with the MFP models of the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF780, iPF785, PF830, iPF840 and iPF850 wide-format printers can now be purchased separately. This means that if you didn’t purchase the scanner when you first bought your 5-color Canon imagePROGRAF technical printer, you can add one now.
