Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA, July 2021 – Taking CAD, GIS and poster printing to a new level of productivity, Canon Europe today updates its successful imagePROGRAF TX Series of large format printers with five new models: the 24-inch TX-2100, 36-inch TX-3100 and 44-inch TX-4100, plus the multifunctional TX-3100 MFP Z36 and TX-4100 MFP Z36. These new high-speed, high-capacity, multipurpose devices deliver unrivalled print quality, enhanced media handling and advanced security with a familiar workflow, ideal for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) businesses, retail stores and in-house print departments.
A new level of productivity
Whether for vibrant, high-quality posters or multiple copies of high-definition CAD drawings, the new imagePROGRAF TX Series delivers borderless prints at the push of a button, either from a PC or direct from a USB stick. Quick start-up time and rapid processing eliminates delays, and with continuous high-speed printing at up to 3.2 pages per minute and no trimming required, productivity is assured.
Designed for absolute ease of use, when the roll of media is placed in the imagePROGRAF TX Series feeder, the printer automatically detects the media type and width, while the intuitive control panel with its 4.3-inch touchscreen gives accurate media information at a glance.
For high-volume jobs, a dual roll option supported by ‘hot swap’, high-capacity ink tanks gives up to 350 metres of uninterrupted printing from two rolls of the same media, or if needed, will switch between two rolls of different media types. The optional high-capacity, front-located stacker can hold up to 100 A0 prints and can be easily folded away when not in use to save space.
Precision print, vibrant colour
Maintaining its reputation for unrivalled print quality, the new imagePROGRAF TX Series combines Canon print heads and five-colour, full pigment LUCIA TD inks to deliver fine lines, pin-point text and vibrant colours even on plain paper – ideal for high-precision CAD drawings and posters. For prints that will be used outside, the inks offer excellent weather resistance and can be used with Canon’s water-resistant media.
Scan and print
For fast, efficient scanning and printing, the multifunctional imagePROGRAF TX-3100 MFP Z36 and TX-4100 MFP Z36 models incorporate a newly developed, lightweight Z36 scanner that uses SingleSensor™ technology. This innovation saves time and performs an accurate, even scan across the full width, without the need for stitching or calibration.
Junichi Wachi, Director of LFP EMEA at Canon Europe, says: “The original imagePROGRAF TX Series has proved to be hugely popular with customers to date. Now, with growing demand for fast and flexible delivery of prints on demand, this newly improved line-up is optimised to customers’ changing needs, with outstanding productivity features that enable faster and more efficient printing of posters and CAD/GIS drawings. We’re confident that the new imagePROGRAF TX Series offers a model to meet the everyday large format print needs of any business.” The new imagePROGRAF TX Series will be available through Canon’s direct sales organisations and channel partners.
