The stacker provides a flat surface to offload prints and eliminates the need for operator handling. Built for high productivity, The new TX Stacker can stack up to 100 sheets of ARCH C, ARCH D, or ARCH E/E1 page sizes for increased productivity.
Multifunction Roll System
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 the unit can be configured as a bi-directional media Take-up unit.
Dual-Roll Feeding: The dual-roll feeding mechanism enables users to load a second roll of media allowing for up to 3900 sq ft of continuous uninterrupted printing.
Bi-Directional Rewinding: The Multifunction Roll System may also be configured by the operator as a take-up unit to rewind longer printouts. The user can choose to rewind media with the printed surface on the outside or the inside of the roll, thereby supporting "bi-directional rewinding".
Automatic Media Loading
Media is now loaded automatically in the new TX Series printers. Once a roll of media is placed on the roll holder, the printer will detect a roll has been loaded and begins to feed and adjust the media into optimal printing position.
Lucia TD Pigment Ink
The imagePROGRAF TX Series printers have an all-new, 5-color LUCIA TD Pigment ink system. This ink produces fine lines and sharp text, even on non-inkjet coated paper. This ink provides a balance between bleed resistance, black density, and water resistance not found in dye ink. Choose from 160 ml, 330 ml, or 700 ml ink tanks.
Precision Printing: High-Density PF-06 Print Head
The newly designed PF-06 is a 1.07-inch, 6-channel print head with 15,360 nozzles. Combined with the TX-4000's high speed carriage transfer and ink ejection, this print head allows for ink to be layed down quickly and precisely.
The TX Series large-format printers come equipped with essential security features designed to help prevent leaks of confidential information:
- Encrypted Hard Drive
- iPSec Support
- 802.1x Authentication
Gigabit Ethernet Compatible
Printing jobs quick is important on the work site and in the office, The Gigabit Ethernet connectivity will transfer large technical drawing files faster and speed up your workflow, perfect for high-volume printing.
500GB Hard Drive
A built-in 500GB hard drive within the printer increases productivity by relieving workload from the host PC, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage, and retrieval. This 500GB hard drive enables job data to be stored in protected mailboxes for easy access via web browser or at the printer for job re-printing. The embedded hard disk is ideal for medium to large workgroups to share a printer efficiently with multiple users, offering ample job storage space.
Sub Ink Tank System
The Sub-Ink Tank System allows all of the available ink in a tank to be used before having to replace it, helping eliminate any 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.

With the Accounting Manager feature you can track how much ink and paper is being consumed when printing in large format. Costs can be assigned to ink and paper to determine expenses based on your own "Cost of goods". Each individual ink tank can have its own cost associated to it, as well as a variety of different paper types. The user can also input a variable cost that will be added to the total of the print cost. The data is exportable to a .csv format for Microsoft Excel so the data can be used for billing purposes.
