TX-3100 Flat stack
500 GB Hard Drive

A built-in 500GB hard drive within the printer can increase productivity by relieving workload from the host computer, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage and retrieval.

Print from USB Drive

JPEG and PDF files can be directly printed from the TX-Series. Simply load your files onto your USB drive, step right up to the printer and plug your USB drive into the port.

LUCIA TD Pigment Ink Set

The TX Series printer features a 5-color Lucia 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 /700 ml ink tanks. A total of 970 ml of ink ships standard with the TX-3100.

Print Head PF-06

The 6-channel PF-06 Print Head is engineered to work with the printer's high-speed carriage and high-frequency ink ejection to help facilitate fast printing. This printer boasts Canon's print-head technology that lays down ink with outstanding 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 help produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The result is consistently accurate 2400 x 1200 dpi output (max.) 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.

All-in-One 15" Touch Screen PC

A computer is included with the MFP Z36 system: Files can be moved via a USB storage device or shared over a network via the ethernet card.

Automatic Media Loading

For ease of use, the imagePROGRAF TX Series printers offer Automatic Media Loading. Simply load a roll of media onto the roll holder, place it in the printer, and that’s it! The printer is able to detect the roll and then automatically feeds the media. No manual roll feeding is required.

Wi-Fi Compatible3

Printing jobs quickly is critical on the work site and in the office. The 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.

Large and Multi-Roll Capable

The TX Series can handle rolls up to 6.7", which could be a 650' roll. The optional Multifunction Roll System is a versatile media handling solution system that enables either a second roll of media to be loaded on the printer, or can be configured as a bi-directional media take-up unit. The optional second roll unit allows for the instant switching between different media types or the use of two rolls of the same paper for up to 190 D-sized prints per hour. As a take-up unit the operator can choose to use this option to rewind longer printouts, with the print surface on the outside or on the inside of the roll.

Sub Ink Tank System

The Sub-Ink Tank System allows virtually all of the available ink in a tank to be used before having to replace it, helping to eliminate 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.
