What do the Canon ImagePROGRAF TX-3100 and Z36 MFP offer to those seeking the complete wide-format printer?

Posted by Louise 06/05/2021 0 Comment(s) Prizma,Canon,

Canon large-format printers will always be synonymous with the highest standards of usability, productivity and reliability, and this can certainly be said of the Japanese brand’s latest ImagePROGRAF TX Series machines. They include such models as the 36-inch TX-3100, the 44-inch TX-4100, and their MFP Z36 variants.


So, to help guide your choice if you are in the market for any of these up-to-the-minute printers, what aspects do these devices have in common, and how do they differ?


The TX-3100: a high-speed printer renowned for its usability and media handling


There are many features of the Canon ImagePROGRAF TX-3100 that we could point out to customers who are thinking of purchasing this machine for the production of CAD documents and posters.


One of the handiest characteristics of this printer is its speed; it is capable of up to 3.2ppm for A1 CAD drawings, this achievement made partly possible by remarkable data processing capabilities. Indeed, this is an excellent printer to consider in general if you wish to ensure the most efficient production workflows, due to such features as its smart media handling system and easy-to-use software.


Further ensuring that you can count on this printer for high-volume production is the ability it gives you to replace ink tanks without the current print job being interrupted, as well as the dual roll option. Nor is post-production overly complicated or difficult with this device, as it also boasts free-size and three-side borderless printing functionality.


And in case you’re wondering – no, that brisk printing speed and efficiency doesn’t come at the expense of print quality. One would expect superb print quality from Canon large-format printers in any case, but the innovative ink and print processes employed by the TX-3100 – including the use of durable full-pigment LUCIA TD ink – ensure such quality is very much ‘present and correct’ here, too.


You have multiple intriguing options for your next Canon wide-format printer


As impressive as the ImagePROGRAF TX-3100’s specification is, there are other possibilities in the broader TX Series that might be even better-matched to your particular requirements.


One of those is the TX-3100’s MFP Z36 variant for those seeking even greater functionality, including SingleSensor scan technology offering an optical resolution of 1200dpi. The dimensions of this scanner are 1056 x 199 x 118mm – or 1056 x 251 x 156mm with Doc return guide – and SmartWorks MFP V6 software is included. The scanner can also handle document thicknesses of between 0.07 and 1.0mm.


Then, there is the aforementioned 44-inch TX-4100 model, which has much in common with the smaller TX-3100, including the same maximum printing speed of 3.2ppm, and scope for borderless printing. Among the other highlights of this device are advanced security features and an intelligent detection system for simple and intuitive media handling.


As always, Prizma Graphics can help you with your decision-making
