Canon’s new inkjet offering improves efficiency and reduces downtime for growing businesses

LONDON, 7th March 2019 – Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions, today announces its WG7400 series; a brand-new range of inkjet multifunction printers (MFPs) for businesses. The WG7450F, WG7450, and WG7440 have been designed with small-to-medium sized environments in mind, offering maximum efficiency and productivity while reducing the total cost to print and reducing maintenance needs – perfect for companies and public sector organisations with limited budget and resource. The WG7400 series is also the first range to combine Canon’s intuitive inkjet technology with its rich history in office solutions.

Brand new A3 inkjet MFPs offer high-speed, high-volume printing and scanning for small to medium sized businesses

WG7450

Productivity at its core

The compact devices carry out high speed A3, printing at up to 80 pages1 per minute, with selected models also whilst offering double-sided colour scanning in seconds. Ideally suited to offices with monthly print volumes of up to 5,000 sheets, the WG7400 series helps streamline heavy document workflows by minimising the machine’s overall downtime, thanks to a well thought out design and fewer replaceable parts giving workers additional time to fulfil essential business tasks. Canon’s inkjet technology and a newly developed print head also promotes a smoother delivery of ink, providing consistent, quality results and reducing the need for duplicates.

To further maximise productivity, the WG7450F, WG7450, and WG7440 models all come with a 5-inch colour touchscreen which allows for easy operation and data input, and an intuitive and seamless user experience.

A practical office solution for the everyday

The new range allows employees to use their worktime efficiently, while also reducing the total cost of ownership, by minimising the need for ongoing maintenance. While the smooth paper feeder helps limit the frequency of paper jams, the environmentally friendly, self-serviceable design includes auto-sleep and auto-shutdown options that comply with global environmental standards. The printers have also been specially designed to support the needs of small businesses, with the opening covers found at the front and right side of the machines so that they can be easily installed alongside a wall, or in a corner to elevate office space. This series boasts a low power consumption of around 1.25kWh/week, which reduces user’s environmental footprint and the cost of running2.

Suhaib Hussain, Senior Product Marketing Specialist at Canon Europe, comments: “With market competition at an all-time high, it’s critical that small businesses have access to high-speed, high-volume print and scan functionality without being limited by their budget. We are passionate about extending productive printing capability to companies across all sectors, with devices that have low running costs and minimal maintenance requirements, as we believe no organisation should be slowed down by its equipment. The new WG7400 series supports the busy, diverse workflows of today, using Canon’s intuitive inkjet technology to maximise efficiency, reduce the need for ongoing maintenance and ultimately lower the total cost of ownership for workforces with less resource.”

Connectivity meets functionality

The WG7400 series includes various advanced processing features, such as automatic size detection, ID card copying and USB printing which allows small businesses to print or save scanned data directly to USB, without the need for a PC.

Additional value is also driven by its ability to support modern working environments. Allowing flexible workers to access critical print and scan functions on-the-go, users can operate all the devices by leveraging a fixed network connection via PC, or by a direct wireless connection on smartphones, tablets or laptops with the WG7450F and WG7450 models, as well as via the Canon PRINT Business app, Canon Print Service plugin, Apple AirPrint and Mopria. This advanced mobility is also combined with security, as the devices equip businesses with the ability to set access privileges, manage the machine from a computer and apply restrictions to print and scan jobs. For businesses handling sensitive commercial or public data, the WG7400 series provides a solution which meets the challenges of businesses and organisations across multiple SMB sectors.

The devices also offer multiprotocol support to businesses, allowing users to select multiple file formats that, once scanned, can be sent or saved to various destinations. This includes sharing compact or searchable PDFs to email, fax, FTP and SMB.

The WG7400 series will be available across EU from H2 2019.
