  • LUCIA TD inkThe all-new 5-color TD pigment 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 the outdoor conditions of a construction site.

  • Advanced Precision Print headThe new imagePROGRAF TX series 5-colour, fully integrated print head enables even faster printing with exceptional print quality. At a compact 27.17mm (1.07in) wide, 6 channel integrated with 15 360 nozzles, it enables efficient, high-precision ink ejection without discrepancies.

  • Image Processing EngineimagePROGRAF TX series printers feature a re-designed processing engine: L-COA PRO. It combines the latest and most advanced Canon image-handling algorithms with a newly-developed, application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) for processing high resolution images and data – delivering the very best print quality at high speed.

  • Rigid Platform for Best qualityimagePROGRAF TX series printers feature a brand new mechanical platform. The highly innovative chassis structure provides an exceptionally rigid frame that can maintain a precise distance between the print head and media – virtually eliminating oscillation for high-precision ink placement with minimal inter-colour discrepancy.
