Canon India has announced the launch of the new imagePROGRAF TM Series printers, a range of high-performance, large-format printers designed for copy shops, photo studios, corporate offices, site engineering offices, and print shops. 

The new lineup offers both single-function and multifunction printers and is designed to deliver high-quality prints at a faster speed. The series is tailored to meet a wide spectrum of large-format printing, catering to copy shops, the photo studio segment, corporate offices, site engineering offices and print shops.

In light of the swift transformation and digitization being witnessed in the professional printing industry, Canon India is pivoting its cutting-edge technology towards developing specialized products tailored to the contemporary needs of users,” said Manabu Yamazaki, president and CEO, Canon India. 

We are proud to expand our portfolio with the all-new imagePROGRAF TM, a series high on performance and innovation, enabling users to experience a new dimension in creativity, precision and streamline their printing processes. Along with continuing our strides in product innovation, we as a brand are taking a new step towards environmental responsibility as the new TM series is Canon’s first large format inkjet printer packaged in eco-friendly cardboard rather than Styrofoam. We are confident that the new products will help users immensely in their daily workflows, setting new standards in the industry.”

Commenting on the lineup, C Sukumaran, senior director, Products & Communication, Canon India, said, “As we launch a new lineup of TM series today, we at Canon India are proud to be enabling businesses to unlock new levels of productivity and efficiency. This versatile and innovative lineup encompasses printers in both single and multifunction categories, effectively addressing the diverse printing requirements of copy shops and businesses.”

Superior print speed with efficient print applications

Canon‘s new L-COA PRO II image processing engine delivers fast print speeds and rapid activation from sleep mode, ensuring remarkable productivity when producing drawings and posters. The imagePROGRAF TM-5350/5355 achieves an impressive printing rate of approximately 3.2 sheets of drawing prints per minute, representing a significant 28% improvement compared to its predecessors.

High-quality vivid prints

The newly designed image processing reproduces the color of the print deeply and vividly. Equipped with newly developed magenta ink for excellent red color development, it helps to reproduce important details highlighted in lines and texts for CAD drawings and good quality posters even on plain paper. In addition, all-colour pigment ink is used to print posters and other layouts, which ensures that they do not fade easily over a long period. Borderless posters using roll papers can also be produced without the hassle of cutting the margins after printing. With the color calibration function enabled, variations in output color will be corrected, leading to stable color reproduction for optimum print quality.

All models come with a new flat top design for easy daily operation in loading media by placing roll paper on top of the printer, attaching roll holders, and sliding along a guide, thus enabling smaller operational space without using another table. 

Added features such as paper type detection shorten operation time during the loading of paper and reduce labor costs. Enhanced with a wider printer panel, paper type with remaining roll paper estimation and ink levels are visible at one glance. There is a significant reduction in the operating noise during printing, especially for TM-5240/5340. With operating noise of about 39dB, it is about 1/3 of the conventional model.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
