Introducing the new Canon MAXIFY GX7060 MegaTank

Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 28 April 2021: Canon Australia, the nation’s most trusted home printer brand1, today announces the latest additions to its Continuous Ink Supply System Printer (CISS) range, including the first MAXIFY models with MegaTank refillable ink tank technology.

As the needs of Australian workers and work environments evolve spanning small business to large enterprise, Canon is committed to enabling businesses to stay ahead of the curve. Built with productivity, collaboration, and efficiency in mind, the new Canon MAXIFY GX6060 MegaTank and MAXIFY GX7060 MegaTank printers are designed to help businesses confidently find the most robust and scalable solution to meet their needs - whether its employees are working remotely from home, in small business offices2 or in a co-working environment.

Empowering productivity
Small offices and shared hubs are increasingly becoming the norm, meaning businesses need all the functions of a top-end device for a smaller number of users. The MAXIFY GX6060 MegaTank and MAXIFY GX7060 MegaTank printers offer fast copying and scanning alongside professional quality prints with the four-colour pigment-based ink system, housed in a compact desktop design.

As the first in the MAXIFY range to offer refillable MegaTank ink tank technology, the new devices benefit from improved maintainability and ease of use, featuring a customisable 2.7-inch touchscreen LCD. Downtime is kept to a minimum with high volume printing of up to 14,0003 pages from a single set of colour ink bottles, up to 6,000 pages from a single bottle of black ink4, and a large paper capacity of up to 600 sheets – holding an excess of one standard ream of paper5.

The inclusion of a user-friendly, easy-to-replace maintenance cartridge to collect any wasted-ink generated during normal printing and cleaning operation also reduces the need to send the printer away for servicing – unlike a traditional inkjet printers which feature a Waste Ink Pad which requires users to engage third-party professional servicing to change in the printer once full.

In applying the benefits of these refillable ink tank technology, small offices, shared hubs, and Aussie households have the potential to reduce the ink/toner cost per page by at least 90 per cent when comparing the ink RRPs for these MegaTank printers to the toner RRP of an equivalent laser multifunction printer – such as the imageCLASS MF746Cx – when printing like-for-like documents6.

In demonstration of Canon’s commitment to ensuring its technology is always one step ahead of customer needs, both MAXIFY devices are now compatible with diverse media applications, ranging from envelopes to long (1.2m) banners. As a result, the new refillable MAXIFY GX models support a range of industries that need a compact printer for use in smaller shared spaces, including retail, medical, educational, real estate, and hospitality.

Collaborate, no matter where you are
As the shift towards hybrid working evolves, office devices need to provide collaborative options for users that need to print on the go. Both the MAXIFY GX6060 MegaTank and MAXIFY GX7060 MegaTank printers offer smart connectivity alongside remote monitoring, management and device operation to ensure businesses never stop moving. MAXIFY users can print, scan, copy and connect to the cloud via the Canon Inkjet/ SELPHY app7 and benefit from compatibility with existing software and technology platforms including AirPrint and Mopria.

Energy efficient printing
Businesses of all sizes are operating with constrained budgets and need their print investments to go further than ever before. Canon’s reliable, energy-efficient printers optimise consumable and paper resources at every step. 

Meanwhile, the printers’ Economy mode option reduces ink consumption, allowing small businesses to benefit from 50 per cent higher print yields of up to 9,000 B&W pages and 21,000 colour pages8 versus standard print modes. The low-energy requirements of the inkjet device also means reduced power consumption, potentially contributing to lower running costs. 

Brendan Maher, Senior Product Manager, Canon Australia says: “The hybrid reality of office and remote working will continue to evolve over the coming months, and with decades of leadership in both B2B and B2C printing categories, Canon is a well-placed, and highly-trusted organisation to help Australians find consistent high-quality, low cost, environmentally conscious print solutions for every work environment.

“Our latest range of MAXIFY printers are more than just a nod to the changing needs of our customers – they are a demonstration of our commitment to providing a solution for every possible need, whether you’re a single user in a home office, or working collaboratively in a hybrid or hub setting. We’re confident that our customers once again have all the benefits of Canon’s superior technology at their fingertips, to help them make the most of their print investments and future-proof their office setup no matter what it looks like,” Maher concludes.

2 The Austr`alian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) defines a small business as a business employing fewer than 20 people.

3 Page yield of ink bottle used for initial setup is lower than a replacement as a certain amount of ink is used to fill the print head during setup. Page yield is the estimated value based on Canon's individual test method using the ISO/IEC 24712 colour chart and continuous printing simulation with the replacement ink bottles after initial setup.

4 Print yields are calculated with international test method ISO/IEC 24711, which use standard test prints designed to represent typical A4 documents.

5 A standard ream of A4 paper carries 500 sheets per pack.

6 The savings are calculated as the ink/toner set cost difference between MAXIFY GX6060/GX7060 MegaTank and imageCLASS MF746Cx = ($0.0205 cost per page/$0.3932 cost per page) - 1= -94.79%. Costs based on RRP of individual inks being $44.99 for colour and $64.99 for black, and toner being $219.70 for colour and $182.42 for black as at April 2021 and max page yields calculated using international standard test prints. Actual cost per page will vary based on print tasks and volumes, usage conditions and the retail price of the ink/toner. MAXIFY MegaTank print yields are calculated with international test method ISO/IEC 24711 and imageCLASS MF746Cx print yields are calculated with international test method ISO/IEC 19798 using equivalent test pages ISO/IEC 24712:2007 and ISO/IEC 19752, which use standard test prints designed to represent typical A4 documents, and testing in controlled conditions. Actual print yields will vary. Yields for inkjet calculated with subsequent set of inks, printing continuously. During initial printer setup, a certain amount of ink is used to fill an inkjet print head's nozzles and so the page yield of the initial bundled set of ink is lower than that of subsequent sets. Printing smaller print jobs may lower the print yield when compared with printing continuously.

7 The Inkjet/ SELPHY App prints photos or documents via an external Wi-Fi connection. It is a free software application available for Android and iOS. Visit the Canon website for more information on compatibility and operating requirements.

8 Economy mode reduces the ink consumption by lowering the density, 50% more pages than the standard mode can be printed. Economy Mode achieves up to 9,000 A4 B&W pages and up to 21,000 colour pages per set of ink bottles. Yields are calculated with international standard ISO/IEC 24734, using test prints designed to represent typical A4 office documents. During the initial printer setup, a certain amount of ink is used to fill the print head's nozzles with ink. Therefore, the page yield of the initial bundled set of ink bottles will be lower than that of the subsequent sets of bottles. 

9 Page yield of ink bottle used for initial setup is lower than a replacement as a certain amount of ink is used to fill the print head during setup. Page yield is the estimated value based on Canon's individual test method using the ISO/IEC 24712 colour chart and continuous printing simulation with the replacement ink bottles after initial setup.

10 Print yields are calculated with international test method ISO/IEC 24711, which use standard test prints designed to represent typical A4 documents.

11 A4 document print speed on plain paper is measured based on average of ESAT in Office Category Test of ISO/IEC 24734 standard.
