Canon Australia has launched four models and four MFP solutions in the new imagePROGRAF series of large-format inkjet printers for the low-mid CAD (Computer-Aided Design) and poster printing markets.
“We have lavished many of the same features introduced in high-end TX printers for the TM series--new core technologies, fully pigment 5-color LUCIA TD ink, a print head with six integrated 1.07-inch wide tips, and the L-COA PRO image processor,” says Canon in a press release.
The TM series takes the acclaimed Canon print-quality and speed into a mid-market offering. Sharp line drawings and vibrant posters are possible even on economical uncoated paper or inkjet plain paper. To expand the potential huge midrange/entry-level user base, the printers are also designed with specifications and performance that encourage deployment by smaller offices and companies.
Each of the imagePROGRAF TM models employ newly-developed LUCIA TD 5-colour pigment ink capable of reproducing fine lines and clear text required for printing CAD drawings. For poster print jobs, these models achieve high colouring on plain inkjet paper, enabling the output of vivid, low-cost posters on plain paper, contributing to economical and efficient in-house printing.
To increase deployment in smaller offices and open-plan studios, the printers are designed to be more convenient in these environments. TM printers are quieter by up to 60% in comparison to the imagePROGRAF iPF series and compact, with fully front-accessible operations and flush wall installation, making them easier to set up where space is limited.
Now that offices are not as noisy, demand for less distracting office equipment is driving a trend towards quieter MFPs, printers, projectors, air conditioners and other equipment. In response to this change in office environments, we have made the TM series quieter and eliminated distracting noises. By maintain a peaceful, comfortable working environment, the printers have a direct impact on work, which is a highly-valued feature of the TM series.
There is also the option to add one of Global Scanning’s fast, high quality scanners, including the T36/T25 scanner with a user-friendly touchscreen display, to the imagePROGRAF TM series creating the perfect multifunctional office companion.
Canon will also release 4 types of waterproof poster media with adhesive backing that achieves excellent weather resistance, enabling users to create outdoor signage suitable for a variety of scenarios.
