Canon releases a more efficient low-service, low-cost inkjet MFP series

Canon’s new WG7200 Series of Multifunction Printers offers consistent, high-quality output via user-replaceable consumables and self-serviceable designs that boost workflow productivity and reduce downtime. The new A3 MFPs offer a low total cost of ownership, little to no maintenance, and high-quality, high-speed printing. The series includes four models, each providing a fast first-printout time of 6.5 seconds with print speeds from 40 – 50 pages per minute in General Mode, and 70 – 80 pages per minute in Office Document Mode, in both colour and B&W.

Canon’s FINE (Full-Photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) printhead system aids the smooth delivery of ink by reducing the turbulence of airflow. Optical and in-nozzle sensors monitor ink ejection and a new ink formulation with low surface tension minimizes smearing and bleeding. A smooth, gently curving paper feed helps limit paper jams. Each printer supports a wide range of media including envelopes, paper sizes (from 4” x 6” to 13” x 19”) and matte photographic paper.
