SINGAPORE, 28 January 2019 – Canon today announced its first A3 Business Inkjet in-line head printers for small to medium sized enterprises. The new Canon WG7740 and WG7750F business inkjet printers print at up to 80 pages per minute (ppm), producing high quality output on plain paper with excellent water resistance so businesses can enjoy enhanced performance and productivity while keeping print costs low.
New In-Line Print Head & Quick Drying Ink Technology
A new Canon FINE (Full-Photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) in-line print head sits at the heart of the WG7700 series printers, and gives rise to the incredible print performance. Spanning the entire width of paper, the print head remains stationary during printing while ultra-fast paper passes streak under the ink nozzles to generate fast print speeds.
A unique array of ink nozzle chips counter disturbances in airflow caused by paper movement at high speeds near ink nozzles, allowing stable placement of ink droplets and excellent image quality.
To prevent ink clogging, a new In-nozzle ink circulation technology maintains constant ink density within the print head and stabilises ink discharge. New dual-sensor ink discharge detection technologies ensures stable ink ejection, while the new quick-drying pigment ink is infused with a special resin emulsion that locks in higher colour density while preventing paper from curling. All these technologies come together to deliver high quality prints with razor sharp text and rich colour reproduction.
High Yield Ink Enables Higher Output with Greater Savings
High capacity ink bottles are available so that business can enjoy up to 20,000 pages of uninterrupted printing for monochrome documents, and up to 16,500 pages for colour. For more efficient management of paper supplies and continuous print jobs, the WG7700 series also support up to 2,250 sheets of paper input with the optional cassette (CF10) installed.
Auto Document Feeder (Single Pass 2-Sided ADF)
The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) on the WG7700 series printers support high-speed of up to 40 images-per-minute (ipm) scanning of single sided document originals. The twin Contact Image Sensor (CIS) design enables single-pass duplex scanning of up to 65 ipm, allowing businesses to rapidly digitise large volumes of document originals.
Unique Paper Path
Unlike electro-photographic (EP) printing techniques employed by laser and LED printers, or many other inkjet multifunction devices, the WG7700 series employ a unique paper path with gentle curves that approach straight-line paper feeding. The print head is also positioned at an angle to allow printing without to the streamlined paper path, reducing stress on the paper during the print process and leading to lower incidence of paper jams.
This unique design is coupled with paper jam-recovery covers that open only on the paper path-side of the device, allowing the printer to be placed along a wall, or even in a corner of the utility room, and makes clearing of paper jams easy.
Minimal Consumables and Easy Maintenance
The WG7700 series make use of just 5 consumables: 4 ink bottles (Black, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow) available in XL and XXL capacities to cater for offices with different printing demands, and a user-replaceable maintenance cartridge (MC50), simplifying supplies management to ensure minimal downtime and uninterrupted printing.
Superior User Experience
A 5-inch colour touch-screen houses a slick user interface (UI) with high resolution icons, delivering a professional and pleasant experience when navigating device functions. The touch-screen supports switching to a full-scale keyboard or numeric keypad for data input and fax operations.
Supports Wide Range of Print Languages and Network Protocols
Canon UFR II, PCL6, PCL XL, and Postscript3 print languages are a standard configuration on the WG7700 series, making them compatible with most printing network architectures without the need to install additional ROM modules.
Canon SEND technology allows workgroup users to distribute scanned documents to multiple network destinations. These range from individual or group email addresses, to local mail boxes, network folders and document management systems. With SEND technology, users can enjoy a more streamlined and efficient workflow.
Low Power Consumption
Unlike laser or LED printing technology that require heating to the fuser element, the WG7700 series printers are also extremely power efficient, with Energy Start Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) rating of approximately 1.25kWh/week1.
The overall performance, ease of use and power efficiency of the Canon WG7700 series will provide small and medium businesses with the speed and productivity needed.
The Canon WG7740 and WG7750F will be available at all local Canon authorized dealers around mid-year 2019.

1 Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) value: TEC value is based on WG7750F, and was calculated assuming the unit will be constantly switched among operational mode, sleep mode, and power-off mode for 5 days, and that it will be either in sleep or power-off mode for the remaining 2 days within the same week. The TEC value of this product is calculated by Canon on their own accord using TEC measurement procedure regulated in International ENERGY STAR Program.
