Question: Re-imaging 30 iMacs in computer lab

Re-imaging iMacs:

I cloned an image from unit 1 (specs seen below) via Time-Machine and re-imaged unit 2 (specs seen below) using the clone from unit 1. The system on unit 2 runs, but seems to be a bit sluggish. My actions were actually a practice run to re-image 30 Late model 2015 iMacs (specs seen below). Can anyone help me/direct me on how to do this in a proper manner? It seems that for the image to work correctly, it must come from an identical unit meaning a unit that has the same specs. Also, is Time Machine okay to use (it's pretty simple)?

I have seen tutorials that use Disk Utility or other software.
