Create Versatile Output with Canon’s Desktop All-In-One A1 Plus Large Format Printer without a Workstation
Canon imagePROGRAF TC-20M, designed with print, scan and copy capabilities, supports various applications in retail, food and beverages, schools, travel agencies and other industries
SINGAPORE, 4 April 2023 — Canon today announced the launch of the new imagePROGRAF TC-20M, a compact 4-colour 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. A4 documents can be enlarged and copied, which will come in handy for educational materials, office notices and promotional posters for retail outlets and restaurants. Users can also easily create large format prints and copies of engineering drawings in remote site offices.
Create a Variety of Output Applications Without a PC
TC-20M 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. ‘Repeated copy1’ 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 stores banners. By using ‘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 distributions. Apart from copy function, TC-20M supports JPEG & PDF file format for direct printing and scanning with USB memory stick without having to access a workstation.
Space-saving to Meet Users’ Needs
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 of maintenance cartridge can be performed conveniently. The printer supports roll paper of up to A1 plus width and is equipped with 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.
Designed to be Productive and Environmentally Friendly
For increased productivity, TC-20M is equipped with 70 ml ink bottles for four colours (cyan, magenta, yellow & black) for continuous printing, which is useful for CAD drawings and posters printing. Every colour inklet on the printer is designed uniquely to prevent 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 colour 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 optional desktop basket2.
TC-20M achieves low power consumption of less than 26 W during operation and 1.9 W during standby. With high environmental performance, the TC-20M has been registered as a gold product under U.S. environmental assessment system EPEAT3.
