with new magenta ink and functional body design
SINGAPORE, 10 November 2023 — Canon today 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-5250, TM-5255, TM-5350 and TM-5355, which offer a range of single function and multifunction1 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 stylish body and flat top that allows for easy roll paper set.
“The imagePROGRAF TM Series sets a new standard for printing excellence, combining top notch speed and precision. With advanced media handling and swift printing capabilities, it consistently delivers the highest quality in text and line sharpness. Our newly developed magenta ink formula will achieve vibrant and consistent reds for stunning poster prints. Tailored to meet the demands of both CAD and poster printing markets, it ensures that every print is of the highest quality.” Said Vincent Low, Head of Enterprise Business, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore.
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 sheets2 of drawing prints per minute, about 28%3 faster than conventional models.
Powered by free print application “Direct Print Plus4”, urgent print jobs can be sent in batches using different file formats5 with simple drag and drop functionality to the printers easily.
Posters and flyers can be created using “PosterArtist6”, a free web application, where new designs can be customised from a wide selection of templates.
High Quality Vivid Prints
The newly designed image processing reproduces the colour of the print in deep and vivid manner. Equipped with newly developed magenta ink for excellent red colour 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-colour 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 colour calibration function enabled, variations in output colour will be corrected, leading to stable colour 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 detection7 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-5350/5355/5250/5255. With operating noise of about 41dB8, it is about 1/29 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.
