Canon recently announced the launch of the new imagePROGRAF TM Series that produces large format prints suitable for corporate offices, site engineering offices, print shops, and many more. The new line-up includes the imagePROGRAF TM-5240, TM-5340, TM-5250, TM-5255, TM-5350, and TM-5355, which offer a range of single-function and multifunction printers to cater to diverse printing needs. Capable of vivid prints on plain paper at high speed, the new TM Series is also designed with a stylish body and flat top that allows for easy roll paper set.
“Canon is dedicated to delivering innovative products and solutions that keep up with businesses’ evolving and diverse printing needs. Our latest imagePROGRAF printers are equipped with advanced features, enabling businesses to optimize their processes and achieve greater efficiency,” said Mr. Kenichiro Kitamura, Director of Office Imaging Products (OIP).
Superior Print Speed with Efficient Print Applications
Equipped with a new image processing engine “L-COA PRO II" which enables quick start up from sleep mode and high productivity when printing drawings and posters. It speeds up data processing time for continuous printing. For TM-5350/5355, it can print up to approximately 3.2 sheets of drawing prints per minute, about 28% faster than conventional models.
Powered by free print application “Direct Print Plus”, urgent print jobs can be sent in batches using different file formats with simple drag and drop functionality to the printers easily.
Posters and flyers can be created using “PosterArtist”, a free web application, where new designs can be customized from a wide selection of templates.
High Quality Vivid Prints
The newly designed image processing reproduces the color of the print in deep and vivid manner. Equipped with newly developed magenta ink for excellent red color development, it helps to reproduce important details highlighted in lines and texts for CAD drawings and good quality posters even on plain paper.
In addition, all-color pigment ink is used to print posters and other layouts, which ensure that they do not fade easily over a long period of time. Borderless posters using roll papers can also be produced without the hassle of cutting the margins after printing. With color calibration function enabled, variations in output color will be corrected, leading to stable color reproduction for optimum print quality.
Ease of Use with New Printer Design
All models come with new flat top design for easy daily operation in loading media by placing roll paper on top of the printer, attaching roll holders, and sliding along a guide, thus enabling smaller operational space without using another table.
Added features such as paper type detection shortens operation time during loading of paper and reduces labor costs. Enhanced with wider printer panel, paper type with remaining roll paper estimation and ink levels are visible at one glance.
There is a significant reduction in the operating noise during printing, especially for TM-5240/5340. With operating noise of about 39dB, it is about 1/3 of the conventional model.
Environmentally Friendly in Product Packaging
In reduction of environmental impact, this is the first Canon large format inkjet printer with cardboard product packaging instead of Styrofoam.
The latest imagePROGRAF TM Series are available at authorized Canon dealers.
