Canon imagePROGRAF TX Series CAD, GIS, and Poster (5-colour) wide format scan/print solutions use a number of advanced Canon proprietary technologies to achieve fine lines, small text and highly detailed graphics produced with incredible accuracy and sharpness.

FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) print-head technology for 5-colour imagePROGRAF TX Printers features a total of 15,360 nozzles into a new 1.07″ high density, 6 chip print head. There are 5,120 nozzles for MBK, and 2,560 nozzles for C, M, Y, and K. Bi-directional printing design of the imagePROGAF TX Printers means print times are significantly faster than conventional print systems which require multiple passes for each line to compensate for uneven droplet size and placement on the paper. An innovative ink-nozzle manufacturing method results in precisely uniform 5 picoliter droplets resulting in 2400 x 1200 dots per inch (dpi) and outstanding print performance. The non-firing nozzle detection and compensation system ensures excellent repeatable image quality for every print.

Canon’s CAD, GIS, and Poster (5-colour) range of imagePROGRAF TX Series Printers feature the LUCIA TD 5-colour pigment reactive ink system designed specifically for the CAD/GIS/poster making market featuring. LUCIA TD pigment inks are water resistant, enabling outdoor viewing and easy handling of drawings. The unique formulation of LUCIA TD inks enhances reactivity between pigment inks and media components. Pigments stay close on the media surface, allowing colours to be vivid, even on plain paper. LUCIA TD inks improve ink adhesion to the media and minimise colour bleeding. When black ink intersects with coloured ink (for example, words printed on a colour background) the black and cyan inks induce a chemical reaction that prevents black from bleeding into the colours. This means clearer text, smoother curves, and sharp fine lines even on uncoated technical papers. Using reactive inks also improves scratch and marker resistance so prints are far more durable than those printed with conventional dye inks.

The CAD, GIS, and Poster (5-colour) range of imagePROGRAF TX Printers utilise two types of black ink for the best possible results on all types of media. For photo-type a black ink (BK) is used and for high contrast prints on matte paper, a matte black (MBK) is used. This process ensures smooth graduations across every media type and is highly efficient as the relevant ink is automatically selected for each media type. The LUCIA TD MBK is a newly developed pigment ink with high surface tension, resulting in less feathering, and lines remain crisp and sharp.

Canon’s advanced L-COA PRO (Large Format Printer Common Architecture) image processor delivers faster high-quality output and print optimisation, even data-heavy HP-GL/2 files such as electrical CAD drawings with intricate lines can be processed quickly. L-COA PRO helps your printer carry out the most complex print jobs – where files can often exceed 200MB – with ease.

In addition, newly added disk encryption, protocol locking and secure data transmission makes the imagePROGAF TX Series devices some of the most robust on the market with measures such as SNMPV3 and IPSec support to prevent leaks and intrusions.
