Canon has announced the launch of three new versatile business devices to meet diverse printing needs for businesses: the large format printer imagePROGRAF TC-20M, document scanner R40 and multi-function device iR 2224N.
“Canon is proud to lead in providing innovative and agile business solutions that simplify business complexities. Our products help businesses focus on what matters, so they can deliver consistent quality output for their own stakeholders,” said Kenichiro Kitamura, director of Office Imaging Products (OIP). “We designed and developed these three new models to help SMEs improve their productivity and efficiency while optimizing business processes safely and securely.”
imagePROGRAF TC-20M: Designed to be productive and space-saving
imagePROGRAF TC-20M is a compact 4-color pigment ink all-in-one large format printer equipped with A4 flatbed scanner, which allows users to make copies from cut sheets and roll papers easily. It can easily enlarge copies of A4 documents to A3 cut sheets, A2 or A1 roll papers, and even to the full width of roll paper. Portrait or landscape orientation of the output copies can be selected from the user panel easily. The ‘Repeated copy’ feature enables an original document to be copied and printed repeatedly using roll paper. This can be used for various applications such as wrapping paper or retail store banners.
By using the ‘Enlargement copy’ function, A4 handheld leaflets and handwritten manuscripts can be scaled to large-size posters to be used in travel agencies or food and beverage outlets.
With the flatbed scanner, thick booklets or brochures can be converted to hard or soft copies for distribution. Apart from copy function, TC-20M supports JPEG & PDF file formats for direct printing and scanning with a USB memory stick without having to access a workstation.
Similar to TC-20, TC-20M fits easily in tight spaces to meet various printing needs for remote worksites, small offices, and retail outlets. With the front access of the printer, all daily print-related operations, such as loading of paper, refilling of ink, and replacing maintenance cartridges, can be performed conveniently. The printer supports roll paper of up to A1 plus width and is equipped with a standard auto sheet feeder that can load A3 or A4 cut sheets, hence making copies, scanning, and printing can all be done on one machine.
For increased productivity, TC-20M is equipped with 70ml ink bottles for four colors (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) for continuous printing, which is useful for CAD drawings and poster printing. Every color inklet on the printer is designed uniquely to prevent the incorrect loading of ink bottles. With the large ink tank capacity system, it reduces time and effort when it comes to ink refilling. Vibrant red color can be produced in lines and texts commonly used in technical drawings, graphics, and flyers. Large format prints and long banners can be collected and held with an optional desktop basket.
Canon has also upgraded PosterArtist with a new version that supports two-sided printing and variable printing function, allowing users to customize text data and create brochures, booklets, certificates, event invites, and more. PosterArtist V1.1 now offers an expanded range of new and trendy design templates to create their own flyers, food menus, and marketing collaterals to meet business needs or customize calendars and photo collages for personal use.
R40: Enhanced Productivity and Organization
The R40 is an easy-to-use scanner that supports quick scanning and fast conversion of documents into searchable digital forms with bundled software. The single-button operation makes scanning fast and efficient, allowing you to program up to 9 shortcuts to simplify scanning even further. With a speed of 40 ppm, R40 also delivers high-quality scans for both sides of documents simultaneously.
R40 efficiently supports robust scanning of a variety of document types as it is equipped with a precise and accurate feeding roller, with the Automatic Document feeder capable of holding up to 60 sheets of paper.
