Achieve greater productivity and cost savings with Canon’s latest lineup of MAXIFY printers

Achieve greater productivity and cost savings with Canon’s latest lineup of MAXIFY printers
With lightning fast print speed, cloud printing capabilities, improved security features and at least 50% lower cost per print[1], the MAXIFY MG5470, MB5170 and iB4170 redefines work efficiency for small businesses.



SINGAPORE, 13 September 2016 – Canon today announced the launch of three new models in the MAXIFY range of business printers. The multifunctional MAXIFY MB5470 and MB5170, as well as the single-function MAXIFY iB4170 pack an arsenal of features and functions to meet the productivity needs of small offices and businesses.

“With the secure mail delivery feature, the new MAXIFY range delivers class-leading print and document solutions beyond cost savings and addresses security and confidentiality concerns for SMEs,” said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore. “Also, the new range supports productivity features such as high speed dual-sided scanning more common to large networked devices and is easily compatible with other fleet management solutions.”

Advanced print technology and easy connectivity for maximum productivity
Speed is one of the most important considerations for a business printer. These new printers deliver print speeds up to 24 images per minute (ipm) and up to 32.5 pages per minute (ppm) for monochrome printing, as well as 15.5 ipm and 26.5 ppm for colour printing in maximum speed settings. Equipped with a wider print head and the unique overlapping paper feeding technology, where the printer draws the second sheet to be printed, overlapping the first sheet while it’s printing, significantly increases the print speed for images. Combined with Quick First Print technology, where the first printout is ready in just 6 seconds, users can expect consistent printing performances and higher productivity levels. 

With the integrated 50-sheet and 2-sided Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) design on the MAXIFY MB5470 and MB5170, batch scanning, copy or faxing will be of convenience for users. The duplex engine on the ADF design, allied with a twin-scanning sensor design makes light work of digitising 2-sided document originals in a single-pass. Both the MAXIFY MB5470 and iB4170 hold up to 500 sheets of paper in two large-capacity cassettes, making them ideal for businesses with higher volume printing needs. For smaller offices with lower document output, the MB5170 will be a good fit with its 250sheet cassette.

Coupled with the unique MAXIFY Dual Resistant High Density (DRHD) pigment inks that demonstrate high fade resistance, water and marker resistance, razor sharp text with minimal bleed will be obtained. Printed documents are effectively water-resistant, so accidental water spills will not pose an issue to the quality of print output.

Equipped with both wireless and wired LAN connectivity features, users will have the flexibility of connecting to the MAXIFY printers via different channels, ranging from Desktop PCs and laptops to mobile devices like smartphones and tablet PCs. With the added convenience of mobile printing via Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app or cloud printing via MAXIFY Cloud Link or Google Cloud Print, work efficiency will be tremendously improved.

Managing and keeping data secured
With a variety of machine management and document security options available on the MAXIFY printers, businesses can be assured that their data will be secured. Users will be able to restrict functions like copying, scanning to USB flash drive and changing of LAN settings, to guard against inappropriate use and maintain data confidentiality. Support for IP Address Filtering also ensures errant hosts can be excluded from usage of valuable printing resources.
           
All three MAXIFY printers support the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), which allows multi-device management and monitoring via popular fleet management applications such as Canon’s imageWARE Enterprise Management Console (iWEMC) and PrintFleet. This maintains data security as it allows the transmission of email data via the user’s mail server and it also enables a seamless deployment with larger device fleets. For smaller installation sizes, individual printers can also be monitored over a local network via their Remote User Interfaces (RUI), accessible from any web browser.

The Scan to Email function supports Canon’s own cloud service, and adds another layer of security by enabling compatibility with enterprise mail servers.

Increased functionality for user convenience
The MAXIFY MB5470 and MB5070 offer some unique features not found on conventional inkjet printers. The ID Card Copy function allows users to copy 2 sides of an ID card or credit card onto a single-sided print while retaining the original card sizes.

For making custom notices and posters, Canon’s PosterArtist Lite software is an addition to the software suite supporting the MAXIFY printers. This software application can be downloaded from Canon’s official website.

The larger 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD on the MAXIFY MB5470 and MB5170 is designed for easy slide-and-swipe touch operation. With the improved user interface, LAN settings and remaining ink levels in cartridges will be displayed, allowing for easy monitoring. Users’ preferences for specific job functions such as scan resolution or copy layouts can be captured and made easily accessible from the home screen.

Environmentally friendly operation
The MAXIFY MB5470, MB5170 and iB4170 feature low power consumption of approximately 0.9W, which helps small businesses to save on overall electricity cost. Automatic ON/OFF settings can also be scheduled so the unnecessary power consumption can be kept to a minimum. An integrated automatic two-sided printing engine also reduces paper consumption by optimizing paper use.
