Introduction to the imagePROGRAF TX Series of Large Format Printers

Features

The TX-3000 MFP T36 large format printer is designed to provide fast, high-quality, large format image capture-to-output. More than just the sum of its parts, it is the versatility of the product that helps make it stand out. This multi-component system gives the user the opportunity to be more productive by being able to print and scan at the same time. The open architecture of the computer can be used to load additional programs, among other things. The printer’s ability to print on a wide variety of media lends itself to uses in many departments and applications as well.

The imagePROGRAF TX-3000 MFP T36 includes:
  • TX-3000 36-inch printer
  • T36 Scanner
  • 15.6" All-in-one Touchscreen Computer
  • Computer Stand
  • TX Stacker

SmartWorks MFP software gives you the tools you need to quickly and easily scan to print/file/share large format technical documents. With a simple to use interface and scan-it-once ability, this software allows for efficient batch scanning and helps create quality scanned images that can be produced in a short amount of time. You can scan to PDF, TIFF and JPEG file formats. SmartWorks MFP software is more efficient than ever before.

Features:
  • Scan-to-Multipage PDF
  • Scan lengths of up to 315" (26 ft) for PDF and JPEG files, and up to 598” (50 ft) for TIFF files
  • Ability to add custom presets with one-touch retrieval for those often-used settings
  • Image enhancements for white point adjust, black point adjust, sharpen, mirror, and invert
  • Fine detail scan feature
  • Ability to mark up documents directly on the monitor and preview before printing1
  • Enhanced administrator rights
  • Full integration with Canon Direct Print & Share cloud software2

The T36 scanner incorporates a SingleSensor Technology Assembly3, which helps provide consistent and better color accuracy with more detail in the shadows and highlights than a staggered CIS array scanner.

Features:
  • 1200 dpi maximum optical resolution, 9600 dpi maximum resolution
  • Image scanning of up to 36” wide, fits documents up to 38” wide
  • Scanning speed of up to 13” per second monochrome, and up to 6” per second color
  • USB 3.0 interface, 75 Mbytes / sec transfer rate
  • Scan a document up to 2.0 mm thick
  • Face up / Front load / Rear exit
  • Straight paper path
The new compact design of the imagePROGRAF TX 3000 MFP large format printer includes the T36 scanner that attaches to the top of the printer and a 15.6” touchscreen computer that attaches directly to the printer stand. The touchscreen monitor makes it easier for the user to preview documents for editing and mark-up. This simple-to-use touchscreen makes one-button scanning/copying easier than ever, and the embedded USB port provides the user with ease and convenience. The new design allows the scanner and printer to work independently of each other which can help increase productivity.
A computer is included with the MFP T36 system:
  • Additional programs can be added to the computer
  • Files can be moved via a USB storage device
  • Files can be shared over a network via the Ethernet card
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.
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.
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 tanks4, 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 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.
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.
Canon's advanced print head technology achieves speeds up to 832 ft²/hr on uncoated media. Print a full color, 2400x1200 dpi high resolution image with plain paper in ±42 seconds5. 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, 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 Series large format printers come equipped with several security features designed to help protect confidential information:

Secure Communication
  • 802.1x Authentication
  • SNMPv3
  • SSL/TLS
  • IPSec
Functionality Restrictions
  • Panel Lock by Remote UI
  • Remote UI Multilevel
  • Hide IP From Panel

  • Job Log Look-up


Printing jobs quickly is critical on the work site and in the office. 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 increases productivity by relieving workload from the host PC, 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® 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 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 feature enables nesting and custom layouts of images or files of nearly any type (available for both Windows® drivers and Mac® drivers).

Sharing ideas has never been easier with Canon’s Direct Print & Share software2. 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. 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 simply 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 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.

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 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.

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 AirPrint9, Apple's future standard output process. This application allows users to output from various applications on mobile devices, without specialized drivers and output applications. There are currently no restrictions on file types, so it is now easier than ever to print full-quality photos and documents from most Apple products including your Mac®, iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod®. It also features easy discovery, automatic media selection, and enterprise-class finishing options.
This software allows users to print simply from the menus of applications that support Android’s printing subsystem. Print PDF files wirelessly via mobile app for Android tablet and smart phones. In just a few simple steps you can log into the Canon Print Service app, create the JPEG file, send the JPEG file to a TX Large-format printer and hit the “JPEG direct print” function to print your document. Simple and easy to do on-the-go!
