New Business Printers Deliver Speed and Productivity Increase While Keeping Costs Low For Businesses


SINGAPORE, 10 June 2016 – Canon, a world leader in digital imaging, proudly announces 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.

Powerful performance
Speed is one of the most important considerations for business printer, and these new printers deliver ISO-compliant print speeds up to 24 images per minute (ipm) for black and white, and 15.5ipm for colour. In maximum speed settings, users can expect speeds up to 32.5 pages per minute (ppm) in black-and-white, and 26.5ppm in colour.

The use of overlapping paper feeding technology is one of the main reasons powering this breakthrough speed performance. This unique mechanism draws the second sheet to be printed from the paper cassette, overlapping the first sheet that is undergoing the first print. Combined with Quick First Print technology where the first printout is ejected in just 6 seconds, users will experience low-lag, consistent printing performances.

These printers are also compatible with the unique MAXIFY pigment ink formulation, producing razor sharp text with minimal bleed, resistant to unsightly streaks when highlighter markers are run over printed text. Printed documents are effectively water-resistant; consigning hair tugging scenarios during accidental water spills firmly in the past. With MAXIFY printers, vivid, colorful images, charts, and graphs will retain their original appearance even after prolonged contact with water and under high humidity conditions.

The range and capacity of paper handling on the MAXIFY printers set them apart instantly from other printers designed for home or home office environments. The MAXIFY MB5470 and iB4170 hold up to 500 sheets of plain office paper in two large-capacity cassettes, making them ideal for business with high volume printing needs. The MB5170 offers a 250 sheets cassette for small offices that have no less demand for performance and productivity, but who are expecting less daily document output.

For batch scanning, copying or faxing needs, the integrated 50-sheet 2-sided Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) design on the MAXIFY MB5470 and MB5170. 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.

Increased functionality
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 a welcome addition to the software suite supporting the MAXIFY printers. This software application can be downloaded for free from Canon website, and is so easy to use without the need to refer to any user manuals or without requiring advanced image editing skills.


Improved usability
The 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD is designed flushed with the front operation panel to make it easy for slide-and-swipe touch operation. The user interface also sees improvement over the previous generation of business printers, displaying LAN settings and ink cartridges that are low on ink. Custom profiles that capture users’ preferences for specific job functions such as scan resolution or copy layouts, can be found the home screen for easier access, while scroll buttons are added for easier scrolling of menus.

Upgraded device management functions
MAXIFY printers offer a variety of machine management and document security options to businesses. The MB5470 and MB5170 allows users to lock-down functions like copying, scanning to USB flash drives, changing of LAN settings to guard against inappropriate use and to maintain data confidentiality. Support for IP Address Filtering also ensures errant hosts can be excluded from usage of valuable printing resources.

All three 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. 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 not only supports Canon’s own cloud service, but adds another layer of security by enabling compatibility with enterprise mail servers, thanks to support for SMTP.

Environmentally friendly operation
MAXIFY business printers feature low power demands, greatly reducing power consumption for small offices. For advanced power management, the printers support Scheduled ON/OFF settings, allowing them to be powered on in the morning, and turned off in the evenings automatically. An integrated automatic two-sided printing engine also reduces paper consumption by optimizing paper use.
