Canon U.S.A. Offers High-Quality Speed and Performance Inkjet Printing

With the launch of the imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 series

Designed for high-volume printing of elevated image quality CAD drawings and posters, Canon’s 36-inch (914mm) imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 features new technologies for easy media handling, versatility, and the fastest print speeds of any imagePROGRAF to date.



For fast-paced businesses working with tight deadlines, the imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 series combines high-speed output with an abundance of features to support continuous productivity and efficiency. With excellent media handling and the scope to produce high-quality applications (including CAD/GIS drawings, renderings, maps, and posters), this robust printer is the ideal choice for customers in architecture, engineering, construction, and manufacturing as well as professional print service providers and copy shops. For an increasingly efficient workflow, the multifunctional imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 MFP Z36 integrates the printer with a precision maximum output, minimum downtime scanner in one device.



Printing at speeds of four D sized CAD pages per minute, this newest model is the fastest in the imagePROGRAF series. With 700ml high-capacity ink tanks and dual roll feeding, it maximizes output and minimizes downtime, comfortably handling production volumes between 3,000 and 5,000 square feet a month. It is also supported by Direct Print Plus workflow management software and a high-capacity stacker that can hold up to 100 A0 sheets.


Designed for maximum productivity, this printer series comes with “hot swap” media rolls and inks, making it the first system in its category to enable users to replenish media and ink on the fly during printing. The smart roll set takes the guesswork out of media loading; the user simply places the roll into the feeder and the printer does the rest. From the moment the print button is clicked, the first A1 CAD print can be in the user’s hand within 19 seconds.


The job submission tools in the CPP printer driver and CPP Publisher Select helps to achieve efficient printing with reduced misprints by monitoring the media width and the remaining amount of media before printing.



The new printer uses Canon’s superior LUCIA TD ink technology, enabling high-quality output from CAD drawings to maps and posters, all on a wide range of coated and uncoated media. Fine black lines and text can be reproduced clearly and with minimal feathering even on uncoated media. Furthermore, due to the weather resistance of the inks, vivid colors are prevented from fading even when using inexpensive, plain inkjet paper.



The space-saving, ergonomic console design means that operations such as ink tank and media roll changes happen at the front of the imagePROGRAF TZ-30000, while completed prints are removed from the top of the device.


The MFP Z36 model packs even greater functionality into a small-footprint, thanks to the integration of a high-quality, multi-function scanner with a dual LED light source system. This MFP model is easy to install and particularly suited to smaller office spaces. It comes with a large free-position touchscreen with easy-to-use preview functions and rich image editing capability.


For optimum security, all file data can be erased from the hard disk after each print job is completed, and an optional PIN code and interface security can be used to prevent unauthorized access. 


“Our extensive market research pointed to an increasing demand for high speed, yet versatile, large format printers for users who are looking to expand business opportunities within the low-end LED / high end inkjet market, and the Canon imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 Series has been created specifically to meet that industry need,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “As an industry-leading innovator, Canon is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of print by developing new cutting-edge solutions designed to help our customers stay productive and efficient.”



Canon's imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 rich feature set, image quality, and throughput capabilities target the day-to-day frustrations of a cross-section of the technical printing market. The 5-color multifunction imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 series offers solid solutions to help CAD, AEC, and GIS businesses—from current low-volume legacy LED to high-volume CAD serial scanning inkjet—bring their printing to the next level. 


The new imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 and imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 MFP Z36 will be available from Canon channel partners May 2021.
