The Canon imagePROGRAF PRO and TX range have super intelligent paper feed systems, but sometimes the media itself can be being poorly loaded on the roll or very loose. This can cause paper feed and print errors due to the media not being straight, otherwise known as “skewed”.
Although the printer’s automatic Skew Detection will usually de-skew the media without intervention, this error can also be due to the Skew Detection Accuracy being incorrectly set. Customers can easily reset the Skew Detection to Standard by following these simple steps…
On the Touch Screen LCD simply tap the paper that is skewed (Roll 1 or 2) to open the sub menu:
Tap Skew Detection Accuracy
In extreme circumstances realigning the media may require manual intervention by lifting the media cover and paper lever and then straightening the media against the orange line on the right of the platen (A). To make life even easier, the touch screen LCD panel will guide them through every step.

Almost all products have a competitor & the new Canon TM Series is no exception.
An independent, professional test comparison was conducted by Buyers Lab International (BLI), where they tested the new Canon TM-200 against the Epson SureColor SC-T3200.
Out of the 7 main test criteria the Canon TM-200 was superior in 6, and equal to the Epson SureColor SC-T3200 in 1:
“Overall whilst producing better image quality overall while printing at faster speeds the Canon TM-200 also used less ink than the Epson SureColor SC-T3200. Better feature sets and direct print functionality were also deciding factors in establishing the Canon TM-200 as the superior printer”
Canon printheads are incredible precision instruments, so the actual alignment is crucial to achieving the professional results that only Canon printers can.
Occasionally, all large format printers may experience slight misalignment of the printheads resulting in fine lines or misplaced colour on the print where the printhead has shifted microscopically. Possibly due to vibrations when the printer is being relocated.
The remedy for misalignment couldn’t be easier, and your customers can be printing fantastic results within seconds, with no technical know-how required.
On the PRO and TX series for example, your customers can execute the following sequence via the touch screen LCD on the printer:
– Tap Maintenance
– Tap Print Head Alignment
– Select Auto (standard) or Auto (fine)*
– Confirm Yes and select the paper source
A test pattern will be generated while the printhead is realigned automatically by the printer.
That’s all there is to it…job done! Isn’t that easy?
The new Canon imagePROGRAF TX series can process CAD data, including HP-GL/2 – up to twice the speed of previous models thanks to the incredibly powerful dual Canon L-COA PRO processors built into every printer in the range, leading to tangible productivity gains that mean less time spent waiting at the printer and more time designing and generating business for your customers.
Canon developed the original L-COA chip specifically for large format printers in order to process high-volume image data at high speed, while simultaneously controlling the image processing and printer functions, and still output incredible high-definition prints. An amazing feat of engineering developed entirely in-house based on Canon’s heritage in producing image processing engines for scanners, printers and our vast range of photographic equipment.
The dual L-COA PRO does all of this, with rendering capabilities that are at up to twice as fast of their predecessors. The imagePROGRAF TX series is truly a real-time
and money saver.

The brand new Canon PRO-6000 60inch Photo and Fine Art printer has a wealth of advantages over the Epson SC-P20000 model and is perfect for any quality-conscious customers looking for the
ultimate in high definition inkjet printing. The PRO-6000 is smaller, comes with nearly four times as much ink in the box as the nearest equivalent Epson (that’s almost 4 litres of ink worth a staggering £1,800 at RRP) and produces images that clearly and easily demonstrate why the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO series cannot be equalled in the large format inkjet market.
With class-leading running costs and ink usage of up to 25% lower than its Epson rival, the new imagePROGRAF PRO-6000 is, pound for pound, the heavyweight champion of high-end photo and fine art printing.
See below for a comparison on how the two machines stack up against each other:
International fashion illustrator Megan Hess, famous for illustrating the best-selling novel Sex and the City, is using Canon’s PRO series of imagePROGRAF printers to bring her printing in house,
which she says gives her more control over the finished product. “The benefit of printing in house is that I can keep a close eye over the detail, which is a fundamental aspect of my design
process. Partnering with Canon gives me the peace of mind that the exact colours, the line work, and detail is reproduced precisely as I envisioned it,” she said.
Megan uses the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 and imagePROGRAF PRO-2000, to produce her prints. She believes her work increases in value when printed, saying “In our automated and digital society anything that’s hand drawn, handmade, hand crafted or hand printed becomes really valuable. I’m excited to be part of the printing process using Canon because I know my work is truly valued when it becomes a piece of tangible art, or is something I can share with someone.”

Canon Europe has launched its new 12-colour 60-inch large format professional inkjet printer to complete the award-winning imagePROGRAF PRO series. The PRO-6000 offers unsurpassed photo printing with a 12-colour ink system, dual-roll printing for excellent productivity and a space-saving design.
The PRO-6000 is consistently superior in print quality
The wide colour gamut of the PRO-6000 enables photographic output of exceptional quality, which is now available in 60 inches. Ideal for advertisements, graphics, and posters for indoor and outdoor use, the PRO-6000 features the newly developed LUCIA PRO pigment ink and transparent Chroma Optimiser ink for printing with excellent colour expression, superior black reproduction, good gloss characteristics and suppression of bronzing. Thanks to Canon’s unique input-output technology and Crystal-fidelity feature, photos look as accurate printed as when they were captured, thus meeting the demands of the most critical photographers and graphic arts designers.
Unbeatable efficiency and productivity
The newly developed Multifunction Roll System enables unattended use for multiple purposes using different media types with a single printer. In addition, simultaneous loading of the two types of black ink allows loss-free and automatic ink switching across various media. With a powerful L-COA PRO high-speed image processing engine, the new PRO-6000 is capable of processing large volumes of high-res images and data with ease. As a result, the new device enables poster-quality printing at a faster speed of current imagePROGRAF 12-colour models. Full connectivity and Wi-Fi functionality ensures optimum productivity for busy environments through seamless integration with existing networks. The compact design of the PRO-6000 also makes it ideal for space-pressed print operations and other businesses that had forgone the introduction of a large format printer.
Hiroaki Shirakawa, LFP Product Management Manager, Canon Europe, states: “The imagePROGRAF PRO series is dedicated to a high balance between print quality and productivity. Efficient media handling, and high-speed uninterrupted printing to support high-volume output are fast becoming fundamental requirements for both print-for-pay and print-for-use environments. As an imaging company, we understand the importance of fine detail and precise colours to professional users. For discerning photographers and graphic artists, the stunning quality output and powerful technology of our 12-colour devices is unmatched by the competition. Naturally, we are very excited to have completed the PRO suite of printers and to begin rolling out the new imagePROGRAF PRO-6000 this year.”

Canon’s UK distributor, Velmex Distribution saw record Canon LFP sales during 2015.
‘In 2015 our Canon printer sales increased by around 20% compared to the previous year’ said Mark Keeley, Managing Director of Velmex Distribution. ‘Canon also saw significant growth across Europe with record market share in almost all territories’.
Keeley also explained what was behind this success ‘We are seeing sales increase as more customers become aware of the benefits of using Canon technology. Our sales are particular strong with users upgrading from other manufacturers large format printers to Canon. These experienced users quickly identify the key benefits Canon printers offer, print quality, speed, reliability, software tools and total cost of ownership. Our success has not been limited to any one market sector as we have seen sales increase in the technical (CAD market), production printing, photographic and fine art markets’.
Keeley was also optimistic looking forward to 2016. ‘We are also forecasting a very strong 2016 as Canon introduce new models across the range. For the technical & copy shop market we are introducing the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF670 MFP L24 and Canon imagePROGRAF iPF770 MFP L36 multi functional devices. These are 24” (A1+) and 36” (A0+) respectively which can print, copy, scan to archive & scan to email. The new MFP’s offer low cost of ownership, a small footprint design with ease of operation’.
‘Later in the year we will launch the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO series of printers. The first model to launch will be the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO 1000, an A2+ size cut sheet model for the photographic market. This new model will be quickly followed by four new larger printers, the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO 2000 (24”) & Canon imagePROGRAF PRO 4000 (44”) printers for the photographic & fine art markets. Alongside these new models we will also be introducing the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO 4000S (44”) & Canon imagePROGRAF PRO 6000S (60”) printers designed for high volume, production environments. All these printers will use the new Canon LUCIA PRO ink set which offers stunning print quality, fast dry times with high durability’.
