Canon’s imagePROGRAF TM Series of large format inkjet printers are especially designed for customers producing CAD, GIS and poster applications. These printers address the needs of customers in the corporate, architectural, construction, engineering, retail, education and government sectors, enabling them to produce high quality drawings, maps and posters on demand, in-house.
The imagePROGRAF TM Series has been designed to meet demand for a productive, robust, large format printer for business environments that require smaller volumes of high-quality prints, with a compact footprint and less noise.
This series features eight different models, all aimed at customers printing low- to mid-volumes.
They are compact devices optimised for space-constrained office environments with a total footprint of 982 x 887 mm for the TM-200/205 models.
The intuitive operation panel means that users do not require training or specialist skills to operate the device and the aim is to make it easy to produce creative and complex applications, with the newly improved software tools. PosterArtist V3.0 poster creation software helps operators to produce multi-lingual posters with over 900 expressions in 10 different languages, using over 350 templates and images while Free Layout Plus offers a template tool for the design of folded posters.
The imagePROGRAF TM Series boasts Canon’s LUCIA TD 5-colour pigment inks. This unique ink, which includes MBK with high surface tension, produces lines and text that are dense and crisp with minimal feathering. For continuous printing of drawings on A1 landscape plain paper in the fastest mode, the imagePROGRAF TM-300/305 can produce 144 prints per hour.
With this series, businesses can produce CAD drawings, GIS maps and posters on demand and in-house, reducing outsourcing costs and response times.
The printers also offer strong security features, including secure authentication and user controls.
