The design of the TM Series printers reflects Canon’s focus on ease of use. With a new flat top design, these printers require less operational space and reduce operation time. They also feature a wider printer panel for easy monitoring of paper and ink levels. Additionally, models TM-5240/5340 are notable for reduced operating noise levels.
