Canon Introduces New Business Inkjet Multifunction Printer Series
MELVILLE, N.Y., October 9, 2018 – From major cities to rural communities, businesses are the pulse of the nation. For those tight on time and resources, particularly in small-to-medium sized environments, it becomes especially essential to implement office equipment that requires minimal service and can help employees utilize worktime efficiently. On a mission to help those companies flourish and with printing expertise from desktop to production, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, debuts the Canon WG7200 Series Multifunction Printers.
“Canon is being bullish in its mission to insert inkjet technology into the office,” says Kazuto Ogawa, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We sought to create new A3 multifunction printers that would bring intuitive inkjet technology to the B2B workforce. Intentionally designed for a low total cost of ownership, and little to no maintenance requirements, the series creates a compelling value proposition for businesses tight on resources that still desire high-quality, high-speed printing.”
The Canon WG7200 Series Multifunction Printers offer consistent, high-quality output through user replaceable consumables and Jam Defying Design. Their self-serviceable designs can help offices boost workflow productivity and maximize uptime.
The series includes four multifunction printers: the WG7250Z, WG7250F, WG7250, and WG7240. Each provides a fast first printout time of 6.5 seconds* with print speeds ranging from 40ppm** (WG7240) to 50ppm** (WG7250, WG7250F, and WG7250Z) in General Mode and up to 70ppm** (WG7240) or up to 80ppm** (WG7250, WG7250F, and WG7250Z) in Office Document Mode) in both color and black and white. Paper widths of up to 13" feed over a Canon FINE (Full-Photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) stationary print head during printing to help achieve these fast print speeds.
The print head system is designed to help promote the smooth delivery of ink by reducing turbulence of airflow. Optical and in-nozzle sensors monitor ink ejection to help ensure reliable printing performance. A newly designed ink formulation with low surface tension allows inks to absorb into the paper in a short amount of time and helps minimize smearing and bleeding.
The multifunction printers’ smooth, gently curving paper feed helps limit the frequency of jams by allowing for a straight paper path. Each printer supports a wide range of media, including envelopes, paper sizes from 4-inches by 6-inches up to 13-inches by 19-inches, matte photographic paper, and a wide range of paper weights.
Customers are now accustomed to devices that get them what they need with a touch of a button. The user-friendly, five-inch color LCD touch panel makes setup easy and allows users convenient access to print, copy, scan, and other functions. On each printer, the covers that open are located on only the front and right sides of the machine, so that the printer can easily be installed alongside a wall or in a corner to help maximize valuable office space.
The Canon WG7200 Series Multifunction Printers are expected to be available for purchase in Q1 2019. For more information, visit https://www.usa.canon.com/WG7200Series.
