 TX Stacker

Built for high productivity and increased flexibility this stacker handles documents of mixed sizes, including ARCH C, ARCH D, or ARCH E/E1sizes, and stacks them up to 100 sheets. The variety of configurations the TX Stacker can be positioned makes prints easily accessible to pick up for on-the-go printing. When not in use the TX Stacker can be folded up to conserve space.

Optional 2nd Roll Unit

The optional Multifunction Roll System is a versatile media handling solution system that enables either a second roll of media to be loaded on the printer, or can be configured as a bi-directional media Take-up unit. The optional second roll allows for the immediate switching between different media types or the use of two rolls of the same paper for up to 3900 sq. ft. for printing of large, consecutive runs. As a Take-up unit the operator can choose to use this option to rewind longer printouts, either surface on the outside or the inside of the roll.

LUCIA TD Pigment Ink Set

The TX-4000 features an all new 5-color TD pigment ink set. This ink was formulated to produce fine lines and sharp text on both inkjet and non-inkjet paper. Combine this pigment ink with water resistant media and you have a printed drawing that can withstand the outdoor conditions of a construction site. Available in 160 ml, 330 ml, and 700 ml ink tanks1, you have the ability to purchase a combination of ink sizes based on your printing volume. 1,650 ml ships standard with the TX-4000.

Sub Ink Tank System

The Sub-Ink Tank System allows all of the available ink in a tank to be used before having to replace it, helping eliminate any wasted ink. The empty tanks can also be replaced on-the-fly without stopping the printer. This is extremely useful during your long print jobs. 

PF-06 Print Head

The newly designed, 6-channel PF-06 Print Head is engineered to work with the printers’ high-speed carriage and high-frequency ink ejection to enable fast printing. This printer boasts Canon’s print-head technology that lays down ink with exceptional speed and accuracy. The PF-06 print head incorporates a nozzle orifice shape to help minimize mist spray, producing clean lines and text. The high-precision, high-density print head, with a total of 15,360 nozzles, lays down 5 picoliter-size ink droplets that produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The result is consistently accurate 2400 x 1200 dpi output with fine lines that are accurate to ±0.10% and as thin as 0.02mm. 

L-COA Processor

Canon’s advanced print head technology achieves speeds up to 832 ft²/hr on uncoated media. Print a full color, 2400×1200 dpi high resolution image with plain paper in 42 seconds2. Powering these incredible print speeds is Canon’s L-COA processor, at the heart of every imagePROGRAF printer.

Automatic Media Loading

The TX Series offers Automatic Media Loading for ease of use. You simply can place a roll of media into the printer, and let it do the rest of the work! The printer detects the roll and then automatically feeds it through. No manual feed is required.

Direct USB Thumb Drive Printing

A new feature for the imagePROGRAF 5-color Printers, the TX Series includes the accessibility of USB thumb drive printing, supporting JPEG and PDF file formats. Simply load your files onto your USB drive and step right up to the printer and plug-in.

The TX Unified Printer Driver

The TX Unified Printer Driver5 allows users to print to any imagePROGRAF TX Series device, without any need to install additional drivers for each model. This makes it a hassle-free installation process for multiple devices within the same environment.

The Windows® and Macintosh® drivers incorporate simplified page setup options, one-touch borderless printing, expanded color settings, and much more into a printer driver that is intuitive and easy-to-operate while still giving even the most advanced users the tools needed to stay productive.

The Real Preview feature lets users ensure that the print setting and the layout on the roll paper is correct by providing real time preview, allowing users to change the print setting even after clicking on “print.” The Free Layout feature enables nesting and custom layouts of images or files of nearly any type (available for both Windows® and Mac® driver). 

Direct Print & Share

Sharing ideas has never been easier with Canon’s Direct Print & Share6 software. Direct Print and Share is a cloud portal and batch printing solution that helps you to expand your printing workflow. Available as a free download, this software allows you to upload documents to your account using any WebDAV compliant cloud service, and have these documents printed from almost anywhere.

You can even set up multiple folders, each with their own customized settings, allowing for multiple jobs to be run with ease.
 

High Capacity Ink Tanks

Available in 160ml, 330ml, and 700ml ink tanks, you have the ability to purchase a combination of ink sizes based on your printing volume.

Accounting Manager

Accounting Manager serves as a powerful feature, used for accurate management of printing costs and other information that is increasingly important in today’s economic environment.

With the Accounting Manager feature you can track how much ink and paper is being consumed when printing in large format. Costs can be assigned to ink and paper to determine expenses based on your own “Cost of goods”. Each individual ink tank can have its own cost associated to it, as well as a variety of different paper types. The user can also input a variable cost that will be added to the total of the print cost. The data is exportable to a .csv format for Microsoft Excel® so the data can be used for billing purposes. This feature will allow you to determine the cost of each print based on your actual cost. 

PosterArtist Lite

Canon’s included PosterArtist Lite poster creation software gives users the ability to quickly and easily create professional large format prints. Users simply follow the program’s four (4) easy steps to create posters that can be used in applications such as office Presentations, Trade shows, Retail Signage, and much, much more. The PosterArtist QuickCopy feature provides an easy solution for a CanoScan desktop scanner to be used as a copier, making letter-size flyers and documents into full-size posters with a touch of a button.

AutoCad Optimized Printer Driver

This specialized driver is compatible with a variety of AutoCAD software products and helps enable optimal printing productivity and reliability from the AutoCAD software. Through this module, the processing and printing time associated with printing AutoCAD files to the imagePROGRAF printer is decreased to approximately 1/3rd the time associated with printing through the previous Canon HDI Driver! The module also has a user-friendly interface that includes familiar features such as free layout, test printing, and 1200 dpi rendering. This module is automatically loaded when printing is attempted from AutoCAD, ensuring a smooth workflow with optimal printing results each time.

Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office

This utility makes it easy to print Large-format documents created in Microsoft® Word, Excel®, or PowerPoint®. The Plug-in appears in a tool bar inside the Microsoft application and has an easy-to-follow “Wizard”. The Plug-in will bypass the printer driver to simplify the printing process. A few simple steps convert your 8.5″ x 11″ office document to poster size. 

Quick Utility Toolbox

Portal to where all of the Canon printer software and tools can be accessed.

Device Management Console

The utility software displays the acquired printer information in a neat list for easy visibility. Printer administrators can be notified via email when an error or warning occurs. No more hassle to get to an installation site of each printer and check on the amount of ink remaining. Printer administrators can now simply check the amount of consumables remaining for networked printers by operating DMC from their own personal computer. You can monitor the status of up to 50 TX Series printers!
