Canon Europe has announced the expansion of its refillable ink tank colour printer range, with two new printers designed for high volume photo printing – the three-in-one PIXMA G640 and the single function PIXMA G540.
Sales and Marketing Director at Canon Central and North Africa Amine Djouahra says “With a FINE print head and set of six ChromaLife 100 dye-based inks, these models produce vivid, bold prints that any photo enthusiast would be proud of. Combined with the MegaTank ink bottles, which enable high-capacity printing, simple maintenance and enhanced media support, this is the ideal solution for photo printer shops who need to meet heavy print demands.”
High quality, bold prints on any surface
Giving photo printing services a competitive advantage, the PIXMA G640 and G540 use six dye-based inks, including two new dedicated red and grey dyes for a wider colour range, creating deeper shaded areas and richer colours for vibrant photos with strong contrast. Both models use FINE print head technology for enhanced print quality which reduces graininess and produces rich colours.
With reduced colour shift across different media types, from double-sided matte to conventional glossy and semi-gloss paper, users are guaranteed consistently high-quality prints on any surface. Photography enthusiasts who want to unleash their creativity can print borderless photos up to A4 and choose from a range of media types such as Canon’s Magnetic Photo paper for personalising fridge magnets or Restickable Photo paper for decorating walls.
High volume photo printing
Designed to meet the high-volume printing demands of commercial photo printing shops, Canon’s latest inkjet printers feature MegaTank ink bottles, which deliver incredibly high page yields. One set of bottles can print around 3,800 4×6 photo prints, meaning fewer bottle refills, less downtime and reduced cost, so businesses can print on with confidence. Coupled with the ability to print a 4×6 photo in under 47 seconds and a 100-sheet rear feed for uninterrupted printing these models increase productivity, an essential tool for businesses who are experiencing high foot fall and need to meet demanding print requirements quickly.
Simple to use, easy to maintain
With useful additions such as the user-replaceable FINE print head and maintenance cartridge, the PIXMA G640 and G540 make it easy for users to manage the device themselves and reduce downtime. Saving time and effort, the MegaTank ink bottles also feature a fool-proof, key-type nozzle to avoid any errors and require minimal effort to refill.
Designed with efficiency in mind, these printers automatically save energy with the handy Auto Power On/Off, while the two line LCD display simplifies managing printer settings and jobs. The Canon PIXMA G640 and G540 offer Wi-Fi connectivity so photography enthusiasts can wirelessly connect their computers, cameras and smart devices and print their favourite snaps directly via the Canon PRINT App, Mopria for Android or Apple AirPrint for a seamless printing experience.
