Canon Europe has announced its WG7400 series; a range of inkjet multifunction printers (MFPs) for businesses.

The WG7450F, WG7450, and WG7440 have been designed with small-to-medium sized environments in mind.

The compact devices carry out high speed A3, printing at up to 80 pages per minute, with selected models also while 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. Canon’s inkjet technology and a newly-developed print head also promotes a smoother delivery of ink.

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.

The new range includes a smooth paper feeder helps limit the frequency of paper jams, and an 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.

The series boasts a low power consumption of around 1.25kWh/week, which reduces user’s environmental footprint and the cost of running.

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 driven by its ability to support modern working environments. Allowing flexible workers to access 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 and Apple AirPrint.

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 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.
