Canon Australia has unveiled eight new large format print models with the introduction of its new imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 Series, and a refreshed imagePROGRAF TX Series.
The fresh line-up of five-colour multifunction (MFP) and single-function (SFP) large format printers, with a diverse range of solutions and newly-developed scanner accessories, aims to meet the needs of high-production to entry-level businesses in the CAD and GIS markets.
Sitting at the helm of Canon’s MFP line-up is the new 36-inch model imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 Series – a new category of production printers for Canon, comprising new technologies for high productivity, high-image quality prints, paired with fast print speeds.
In addition, the imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 prints at speeds of up to four A1 CAD pages per minute, has 700ml high-capacity ink tanks and dual roll feeding, and a high-capacity stacker holding up to 100 A0 sheets.
It is targeted at customers in architecture, engineering, construction and manufacturing, as well as professional print service providers and copy shops.
According to the company, the imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 Series can be further enhanced with the optional addition of the newly developed Global Scanning Z36 scanner. Compared to its predecessors, Canon says the 36-inch wide Z36 scanner is reduced in size and weight for a more integrated feel and enhanced operability for end users.
Canon Australia has also updated its imagePROGRAF TX Series of large format printers with six new models: the 24-inch imagePROGRAF TX-2100, 36-inch imagePROGRAF TX-3100 and 44-inch imagePROGRAF TX-4100, plus the multifunctional imagePROGRAF TX-2100 MFP Z24, imagePROGRAF TX-3100 MFP Z36 and imagePROGRAF TX-4100 MFP Z36 – which are fitted with the Global Scanning Z24 and Z36 scanners respectively.
These new high-speed, high-capacity, multipurpose devices aim to deliver unrivalled print quality, enhanced media handling and advanced security while maintaining the Canon workflow – ideal for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) businesses, retail stores and in-house print departments.
With the new imagePROGRAF TX Series, users can expect high-speed printing at up to 3.2 pages per minute and no trimming required, and a dual roll option supported by ‘hot swap’, high-capacity ink tanks.
Canon Australia B2B product marketing general manager Ted Matsumoto said, “In developing our newest range of large format printers, we set out to address a number of industry needs, from users of low-end LED plotters to low-yield, high-quality production businesses.
“With the introduction of the imagePROGRAF TZ Series, we’ve brought forth a robust production solution that balances productivity and efficiency while significantly reducing large format print and finishing times to help customers deliver on the tightest deadlines. I’m certain that this latest addition to the imagePROGRAF family raises the bar for customers and will match the growing demands of any business needing streamlined and hassle-free large format print production.
“Furthermore, the initial imagePROGRAF TX Series released in 2018 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. From the imagePROGRAF TZ Series to the imagePROGRAF TX Series, I’m confident that our new large format printer line-up offers a model to meet the everyday large format print needs of any business.”
Pricing for the new imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 and imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 MFP Z36 will be available through Canon and authorised dealers from June while the pricing for the new imagePROGRAF TX Series models is now available through Canon and authorised dealers.
