Canon has just announced four new wireless inkjet printers, designed to cover a wide range of home or small office applications. All of the new models provide scan and print functionality, while each is tailored to meet the needs of specific workflows: The PIXMA TS3520 is a basic printer with a minimal desktop footprint, the PIXMA G620 Wireless MegaTank is designed for moderate to high-volume workloads demanding high color accuracy, and the MAXIFY GX6020 and GX7020 are made for the efficient output of high-volume jobs.
The PIXMA TS3520 is perfect for simple, everyday print and scan applications. Utilizing a two-cartridge structure and FINE Hybrid Ink System, it is ideal for home offices that require the occasional printout or photo. A simple user interface featuring an LCD screen and intuitive controls, as well as the ability to connect it to Wi-Fi, further streamlines workflow. For mobile devices, the TS3520 is compatible with Canon’s PRINT and Creative Park apps, Mopria print service, and Apple Airprint. For photos, it prints at 4800 x 1200 dpi and can produce borderless 4 x 6", 5 x 5", and 5 x 7" prints. For other jobs, you can select conventional media or customize between 3.5 and 8.5" widths and 5 and 26.6" lengths. It is available in white or black.
The PIXMA G620 Wireless MegaTank Photo Printer was created for high-volume photo printing for scrapbooking, design studios, or the home office. The G620 uses 6-color dye-based inks for an expanded color gamut. These are provided via Canon’s Continuous Ink Supply System, which allows you to refill ink tanks using keyed ink nozzles to prevent you from accidentally refilling the wrong tank. You can quickly keep track of ink levels, thanks to transparent windows built into the bottom of the printer for each color. Up to 3,800 4 x 6" photos can be printed per ink set. Like the TS3520, the G620 features an intuitive user interface, as well as Wi-Fi functionality and app compatibility when using smart devices. You can also print directly from a USB device for quick and efficient output.
The MAXIFY GX6020 and GX7020 are designed for seriously high-output workflows, capable of producing up to 6000 black and 14,000 color pages per set of ink tanks. The GX6020 allows you to load up to 250 sheets of paper in its bottom cassette, while the GX7020 doubles that capacity to 500 sheets of paper. Up to 100 envelopes, labels, business cards, or other unique-shaped media can be loaded via a rear paper tray. Like the G620, both printers take advantage of Canon’s Continuous Ink Supply System and keyed ink nozzles for accurate refilling and clear windows for checking levels. Both utilize a 4-color dye-based ink system to output 1200 x 600 dpi prints at speeds of 24.0 ipm (black) and 15.5 ipm (color).
Single-pass duplex scanning allows you to scan both sides of a document with one pass and 50-page auto document feed capabilities serve as major time-savers in the office. A 2.7" touchscreen LCD makes on-unit adjustments simple to do. Both models are Wi-Fi compatible and can be paired with mobile devices through the same apps mentioned above. They also feature built-in Ethernet for wired LAN support, as well as a USB flash drive reader for direct printing. The GX7020 also includes fax capabilities for document sharing.
