imagePROGRAF TX-5310

Canon imagePROGRAF TX-5310 is a 914.4 mm printer with robust security and designed for speed with amazing print quality even on uncoated paper. It helps boost productivity with features such as enhanced media handling capabilities and free-size borderless printing. It is perfect for CAD, GIS & poster printing.


Productivity at its best

The TX series benefits from innovative features such as automatic media roll loading – where media can simply be placed on the roll unit and user can walk away.

Superb quality

The TX series is an embodiment of print technology of the highest order. Employing high-precision mechanical platform, together with the latest FINE print head.

Highly secure

The TX series gives you full control over user privileges and device access, as well as disk encryption, safe disk erasure and data transmission encryption.

  • 5-colour pigment ink
  • 914.4 mm (36.0in) A0 Size Printer
  • Standard Dual Roll System
  • 500 GB Encrypted hard disk drive
  • Robust security, extensive suite of software and solutions
  • Wi-Fi connectivity & Direct USB printing

Non Stop Printing

The Sub-Ink Tank System ensures no disruption in printing. It allows you to replace cartridges even when the printer continues to print and allowing you to virtually use all the ink in the tank before replacing it. This is extremely useful during your long print jobs.

Non-Firing Detection and Compensation System

The in-built sensor in the printer detects any blockage in the print head nozzle on the fly. Once detected, another nozzle starts firing automatically immediately thus providing a backup. This prevents any wastage due to banding issue and also reduces head cleaning frequencies thus saving on the ink.

Productivity at Its Peak

Standard Dual roll feature enables users to load two rolls of media, reducing the frequency of switching between different media types or sizes in high volume printing. Optional stacker supports stacking of up 100 A0 size sheets and has faster first print from standby or sleep mode maximising productivity.

Media Handling Simplified

Media loading and detection is simplified to “simply place the roll” into the printer. Printer will automatically carry out necessary adjustment and enters print-ready state with minimal supervision. Automatic remaining media estimation will display remaining roll amount on operation panel and send out alert when media is not sufficient to complete the print job.

Unparalleled Security

Print jobs and data are encrypted and transmitted through secured protocol throughout the print process. Secure file and disk erasure, user access restriction and printer functionality restriction further prevent information leaks and other security risks, result in unparalleled security.

Unique Technologies
  • LUCIA TD ink The 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 head The 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.

  • lcoaprologo

    Image Processing Engine imagePROGRAF 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 quality imagePROGRAF 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.
