Key features of imagePROGRAF TZ 5300

  1. Fast print speed: Twin carriage motors ensure maximum productivity is achieved on the TZ series. With print data processing, pre-print operation and print spooling optimized, the TZ series realized fast throughput during continuous printing (up to 4 pages per minute for A1 sheets) and fast first print from standby or sleep mode (as fast as 19 seconds).
  2. Productivity at its peak: Dual roll feeding unit enables users to load up to two rolls of media, reducing the frequency of switching between different media types or sizes in high volume printing. Top delivery tray supports stacking of up to 100 A0 size sheets, while hot-swap replacement allows empty ink tanks and media roll to be replaced while the printer continues to print, maximizing productivity.
  3. Simplified media handling: Automatic media loading and automatic media type detection simplified the media loading and replacement to just one step, which is to “simply place the roll and slide” into the printer. Roll paper indicator allows the user to check from a distance if a roll is loaded, the approximate remaining media length and time to switch the roll. Remaining roll length is displayed on the operation panel and alert will be sent out when media is not sufficient to complete the print job.
  4. Borderless printing: Borderless printing on standard and custom sizes for all supported media. With additional features such as three-sided edge-to-edge printing, the TZ series can handle any poster printing task with ease.
  5. 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, resulting in unparalleled security.

Key features of imagePROGRAF TX 5410

  1. Fast print speed: The imagePROGRAF TX 5410 features faster output during continuous printing by optimizing the pre-processing of print data, process of media cutting and media transport. Pre-print operation and print spooling have been optimized to achieve faster first print from standby or sleep mode.
  2. Productivity at its peak: Dual roll feeding unit enables users to load up to 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 to 100 A0 size sheets, while the sub ink tank system allows empty ink tanks to be replaced while the printer continues to print, maximizing productivity.
  3. Unparalleled print quality and LUCIA TD pigment ink: The imagePROGRAF TX 5410 feature five-color, full pigment LUCIA TD inks to deliver impressive line sharpness, fine lines and edge-to-edge colors with remarkably reduced bleeding even on uncoated papers. The LUCIA TD inks offer high water and weather resistance.
  4. Borderless printing: Borderless printing on standard and custom sizes is now possible for all supported media. The printer is also capable of three-sided edge-to-edge printing on various sizes that do not match the roll paper width. This allows more flexibility in borderless printing tasks compared to the traditional standard four-sided borderless print.

Ever since its foundation in 1937, Canon has been guided by the ‘Kyosei’ philosophy of living and working together for the common good. Canon strives to create and deliver world-class products, becoming a top global corporation by diversifying into new business fields throughout the world. Focusing on optical technologies, Canon produces office equipment, consumer and professional imaging devices, network cameras, healthcare and industrial equipment. Through the close connection between its global head office in Tokyo and regional headquarters in America, Europe, Asia, Oceania, and regional headquarters in Japan, Canon combines its global and local operations organically. In 1996, Canon launched its Excellent Global Corporation Plan to serve society with advanced technologies and become a trustworthy and responsible corporate citizen. The year 2016 was the first year of Phase 5 of the Plan. Currently, Canon boasts a strong global presence of 376 subsidiaries all over the world, supported by 197,776 employees.

Canon India is the sales and marketing subsidiary of Canon, an enterprise in imaging technologies. Set up in 1997, Canon India markets a comprehensive range of sophisticated contemporary digital imaging products and solutions in India. The company today has offices in 10 cities across India with warehousing facilities at 6 locations and employs over 1000 staff and over 850 channel partners. Canon India enjoys a vast retail presence across the country through Canon Image Square (CIS) stores, PIXMA Zones and BIS Lounges.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
