Canon U.S.A., Inc. (Canon) has announced the latest offerings from its imagePROGRAF lineup: the TM Series. The TM Series is designed to offer a solution that is for technical documents, such as CAD drawings and GIS maps, and also short-term outdoor posters, signage and displays with the use of Canon’s LUCIA TD water resistant pigment ink.
Canon says it has engineered the TM Series to be faster than previous five-color imagePROGRAF models when printing sets or multiple page documents by optimizing the print sequence time. This series offers wireless printing, a touchscreen panel and quiet operation.
Utilizing LUCIA TD pigment ink, the imagePROGRAF TM Series provides longevity for vibrant displays and outdoor signage, especially when used with water resistant media, according to Canon.
“Our company always strives to make our technology as versatile as possible to meet the needs of all types of users, whether they are architects or artists,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. “We are very excited to launch the imagePROGRAF TM Series, which allows customers to use our large format printers in ways that they may not have used them before. With these new models, Canon has improved the productivity and usability to redefine what is possible with a large format printer.”
Canon’s imagePROGRAF TM Series, reportedly, offers a smaller footprint for 36-inch and 24-inch large format aqueous inkjet printers, making it a fit for CAD, retail and office environments. Canon has engineered the TM Series to make it up to 60 percent quieter than previous imagePROGRAF models. With many users printing on plain paper, the TM Series can produce both drawings and posters on uncoated inkjet media. These drawings and posters can be printed directly on the imagePROGRAF TM-305 device with the use of a USB thumb drive.
The TM Series of printers also include security features, such as Secure Disk Erase, which conforms to United States Department of Defense standards (DoD5220.00-M), IPSec support, SSL/TLS and 802.1x authentication.
Launching at the same time are the Scan-to-Copy/File/Share systems the imagePROGRAF TM-300 MFP T36 and TM-305 MFP T36 which feature an integrated 36-inch T36 scanner, all-in-one computer and SmartWorks software. These systems feature the direct attachment of the scanner to the printer. The imagePROGRAF TM MFP T36 Series provides users with a 15.6-inch color touchscreen. The ability to scan to multipage .PDF is standard and users also have the ability to scan-to-copy and scan-to-file simultaneously with these models.
For the entry-level, low volume markets, Canon is launching the imagePROGRAF TM-200 MFP L24ei and TM-300 MFP L36ei models, which feature a graphical user interface (GUI) and reduced first copy output time from previous models. The Lei systems now include expanded file support for .PDF/A file formats. The Lei scanner is also available for the imagePROGRAF iPF770 and iPF670 models.
