LUCIA TD Pigment Ink Set

The TX-3100 features the 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 tanks3, 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-3100.

Sub Ink Tank System

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.

Print Head PF-06

The 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.

Borderless Printing

The TX-3100 supports borderless printing on all roll widths and custom widths as well as three sized borderless printing for a reduction in paper trimming.

Operation Panel

A large size 4.3″ LCD touch screen has been integrated into the TX-3100. The large and more vibrant screen displays information such as remaining ink levels. The operation guide can easily be displayed from this screen and be scanned with a smartphone to access a library of information on how to replace consumables.

L-COA Processor

Canon’s advanced print head technology achieves speeds up to 190 D-sized prints per hour4 on uncoated media. Powering these incredible print speeds is Canon’s L-COA processor, which controls the optimal ink layout helping to ensure high resolution output.

Direct USB Thumb Drive Printing

Direct USB thumb drive printing supports 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-3100 supports selected page preview. When printing a multi-page PDF file from a USB, the user can select a certain page on the operation panel and display it in a preview window.

Wi-Fi Compatible5

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.

500GB Hard Drive

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.

Direct Print Plus (DPP)

Batch print files and monitor the status of more than one device for extremely efficient production printing. Easily print, PDF, TIFF, JPEG, HP-GL/2 files and .cpfx PosterArtist files through the user-friendly interface. In addition, you can set-up hot folders on your desktop by clicking the Shortcut Print feature. DPP allows you to simply drag and drop files for on demand printing with improved rendering speeds that are 60% faster than Canon’s Direct Print & Share. You can even set up multiple folders, each with their own customized settings, allowing for multiple jobs to be run with ease. DPP obtains the essential information such as media width and remaining amount of media on the roll helping to streamline the printing process.

Additional features include:

  • Easily collate sets
  • Displays job progress
  • Nest images
  • Print file name, date and time on separator sheets

Canon Production Printing (CPP) Driver Select

Have multiple Canon high volume production printers? Print to the imagePROGRAF TX, PlotWave, or ColorWave machines all from one printer driver.

Canon Production Printing (CPP) Publisher Select

For flexible printing capabilities, the imagePROGRAF TX Series can be printed to from CPP Publisher Select. You can manage printer status, ink and media levels and receive warnings when ink is running low or the media is empty. This software also has dual printer support, ability to view printer features all on one screen, and templates you can create for frequently used job settings.

The TX Unified Printer Driver6

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.

Accounting Manager

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.

PosterArtist Lite

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.

AutoCad Optimized Printer Driver

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.

Quick Utility Toolbox

Portal to where all of the Canon printer software and tools can be accessed.

Device Management Console

Continually monitors information such as the printer status and colors being used to print. This enables printer administrators to centrally control multiple networked printers at once. The 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 hassle to get to an installation site of each printer and check on the amount of ink remaining. Printer administrators can now simply check the amount of consumables remaining for networked printers by operating DMC from their own personal computer. You can monitor the status of up to 50 TX Series printers!

Media Configuration Tool

Manage, update and arrange media information in the operation panel and printer driver.

Canon Print Service
