New core technologies: Canon imagePrograf TM series

Canon is bringing eight new wide format printers to the market in its imagePrograf range, designed for the CAD and poster printing.

The new TM series have many of the same features introduced in high-end TX printers – 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

Canon says the TM series takes the Canon print-quality and speed into a mid-market offering. It says sharp line drawings and vibrant posters are possible even on economical uncoated paper or inkjet plain paper.

TM printers are quieter by up to 60 per cent 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.

Each of the imagePrograf TM models employ newly-developed Lucia TD five-colour pigment ink capable of reproducing fine lines and clear text required for printing CAD drawings, even when using plain paper that lacks ink-absorbing layers. According to Canon 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.

Alongside these models, Canon is releasing four types of waterproof poster media with adhesive backing, that it says achieves excellent weather resistance, enabling users to create outdoor signage for a variety of scenarios.

The new imagePrograph TM range is available in 24” and 36” versions.
