Battle of the A0 Plotters

Battle of the A0 Plotters

HP T730 v TM-300

Let's take a look at our two best selling A0 printers and why they are so popular with our customers.

Both the HP T730 and the Canon TM-300 are ideal A0 size colour printers for anyone wanting to produce good quality CAD and technical prints in house. With wireless connection and simple to use, quiet operation, these modern plotters are the perfect addition to any busy office where reliability, quick output and superb line definition is required.

Whilst the HP T730 is a great entry level CAD plotter, the Canon TM-300 has a few major benefits over the HP, those being:

    • wider choice of media with both 2 and 3 inch core capacity
    • larger diameter roll meaning less frequent loading of paper (and roll handling up to 175mt compared to 50mt on the HP)
    • pigment inks for long lasting images and superb poster work compared to dye inks on the HP which can fade over time
    • higher build quality
    • higher print quality on images
    • borderless print on heavier weight rolls
    • faster print speed
    • more memory
    • cheaper to run over time

With these additions to the usual CAD requirements, the TM-300 will broaden your horizons and offer many more print possibilities to produce your portfolios, posters, displays, banners, exhibition signs and even outdoor prints.
