- 5-Color 36-inch Printer
The Next Standard of Engineering.
Developed to expand the production aqueous inkjet technical documents market, the 36-inch imagePROGRAF TX-3000 Large-format printer is equipped to satisfy the many diverse needs of architects, engineers, construction, GIS and other professionals. With speeds as fast as 3D sized drawings a minute, stacking of up to 100 sheets, wireless printing capability, automatic roll loading and an optional Multifunction Roll Unit, the TX-3000 printer offers greater productivity, usability, and document access control sought in the CAD industry.
Built for high productivity and increased flexibility, this stacker can stack up to 100 sheets of documents of mixed sizes, including ARCH C, ARCH D, or ARCH E/E1sizes. The variety of configurations that the TX Stacker can be positioned into helps to make 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.
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 unit allows for the instant switching between different media types or the use of two rolls of the same paper for up to 3900 sq. ft. of printing of large, consecutive runs. As a take-up unit the operator can choose to use this option to rewind longer printouts, with the print surface on the outside or on the inside of the roll.
The TX-3000 device 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 many outdoor conditions, especially outdoor job sites such as construction sites. 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. 970 ml of ink ships standard with the TX-3000.
The Sub-Ink Tank System allows virtually all of the available ink in a tank to be used before having to replace it, helping to eliminate 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.
The newly designed 6-channel PF-06 Print Head is engineered to work with the printer’s high-speed carriage and high-frequency ink ejection to help facilitate fast printing. This printer boasts Canon’s print-head technology that lays down ink with outstanding 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 help produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The result is consistently accurate 2400 x 1200 dpi output (max.) with fine lines that are accurate to ±0.10% and as thin as 0.02mm.
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, which controls the optimal ink layout helping to ensure high resolution output.
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.
A new feature for the imagePROGRAF 5-color printers is the accessibility of USB thumb drive printing, supporting JPEG and PDF file formats. Simply load your files onto your USB drive, step right up to the printer and plug your USB drive into the port.
The TX Series large-format printers come equipped with several security features designed to help prevent leaks of confidential information:
The following functions can be disabled in administrator mode:
Printing jobs quickly is critical on the work site and in the office. The Wi-Fi connectivity can transfer technical drawing files and help speed up your workflow- perfect for high-volume printing. No Wi-Fi router is needed, which can provide greater freedom during installation. Wi-Fi connectivity is standard for the imagePROGRAF TX Series printers.
A built-in 500GB hard drive within the printer can increase productivity by relieving workload from the host computer, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage and retrieval.
The TX Unified Printer Driver allows users to print to any imagePROGRAF TX Series device, without the need to install additional drivers for each model. This helps make it a hassle-free installation process for multiple devices within the same environment.
The Windows® driver and Macintosh® driver 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 help stay productive.
The Real Preview feature helps ensure that the print setting and the layout on the roll paper is correct by providing users with real time preview, allowing them to change the print setting even after clicking on “print.” The Free Layout Tool enables nesting and custom layouts of images or files of nearly any type (available for both the Windows® driver and Mac®driver).
Sharing ideas has never been easier with Canon’s Direct Print & Share software. Direct Print and Share is a cloud portal and batch printing solution that helps you to expand your printing workflow. This software allows you to upload documents to your cloud account using any WebDAV compliant cloud service, and print the uploaded documents from almost anywhere. Easily share and/or print .cpfx PosterArtist, PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and HP-GL/2 files, through the user-friendly interface. In addition, you can set-up hot folders on your desktop by clicking the Shortcut Print feature. Then drag and drop the files you wish to print into these folders and the job will start automatically. You can even set up multiple folders, each with their own customized settings, allowing for multiple jobs to be run with ease.
Accounting Manager software serves as a powerful feature that can help users accurately manage printing costs and other information that is increasingly important in today’s economic environment.
With the Accounting Manager software you can track how much ink and paper is being consumed when printing in large format jobs. Costs can be assigned to ink and paper to determine expenses based on your own “Cost of Goods”. Each individual ink tank and each paper type can have its own cost associated to it. 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.
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.
* Compatible with PosterArtist and PosterArtist Lite.
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 one-third of the time associated with printing AutoCAD files 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, helping to ensure a smooth workflow with optimal printing results each time.
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 can convert your 8.5″ x 11″ office document to poster size.
This is the portal to accessing all of the Canon printer software and tools.
This software allows users to continually monitor information such as the printer status and colors being used to print. It also allows printer administrators to centrally control multiple networked printers at once. This 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 hassles to get to an installation site of a printer to check on the amount of ink remaining. Printer administrators can now simply check the amount of consumables remaining for networked printers by operating DMC software from their own personal computer. You can monitor the status of up to 50 TX Series printers!
Manage, update and arrange media information in the operation panel and printer driver.
The TX Series will support Apple AirPrint7, Apple’s future standard output process.
