Canon revamps TX large-format range
Tuesday, March 23, 2021
Canon has revamped its imagePrograf TX Series of large-format printers to boost productivity.
Enhancements to the range include borderless printing up to 3.2 A1 CAD pages per minute and a number of automation upgrades.
Five models in the TX family have been upgraded: the 24-inch TX-2100, 36-inch TX-3100 and 44-inch TX-4100, as well as the print and scan TX-3100 MFP Z36 and TX-4100 MFP Z36.
“The original imagePrograf TX Series has proved to be hugely popular with customers to date,” said Canon UK & IE head of product Joe Courts.
“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.”
Developed for bureaux poster printing as well as AEC, CAD, and GIS applications, the new machines are commercially available with immediate effect.
The five-colour, 2,400x1,200dpi, 5pl engines run full pigment Lucia TD inks, which can be combined with water-resistant media for outdoor applications.
Many of the enhancements have been made to improve ease of use, such as the roll feeder which automatically detects the media type and width to negate the need for profiling.
For high-volume jobs, they also feature a dual roll option supported by what Canon dubs ‘hot swap’ high-capacity ink tanks, which enable up to 350 metres of non-stop printing. The TX machines can also be configured with an optional fold-away high-capacity, front-located stacker, capable of holding 100 A0 prints.
The two multifunctional machines in the range also feature a new lightweight scanner featuring Canon’s SingleSensor technology, which is designed to offer full width scanning without the need for stitching or calibration.
