Canon Launches the MAXIFY GX5040 Refillable Ink Tank Printer
Canon Europe has announced the latest addition to its MAXIFY GX printer range, the MAXIFY GX5040. Designed for small to mid-size offices and workspaces, the MAXIFY GX5040 single-function printer is the third and most compact MAXIFY GX model yet to use refillable MegaTank technology. Offering enhanced enterprise security, versatile and high-speed printing, it promises less downtime, reduced running costs, and energy use.
Small businesses no longer need to choose between running costs and high-volume, high-quality colour printing. Ideal for presentation printouts or marketing materials, the MAXIFY GX5040 can print 14,000 pages from a single full set of all pigment durable ink bottles producing highly durable business documents that are water and marker resistant, while its inbuilt Economy Mode increases yield by 1.5x compared with its Standard Mode; producing approximately 21,000 pages from a full set of ink bottles for larger volume printing.
High-speed, high-volume printing is also taken care of with the MAXIFY GX5040, with printing speeds of approximately 24.0 ipm in black and 15.5 ipm in colour and a first print out in as quickly as seven seconds in mono. The MAXIFY GX5040 is ideal for situations where quick responses are required, whether that be customer service counters or small clinics. Significantly reducing outsourcing costs and efficiency, the MAXIFY GX5040 can also print on various media, from envelopes, decorative store-front posters, banners up to 1.2m (plain paper only), iron-on transfers, and magnetic sheets – addressing multiple printing needs in a single device.
With less need for everyday upkeep, the MAXIFY GX5040 has productivity at its core. The MAXIFY GX5040’s large capacity ink tanks mean fewer refills, fewer supplier orders, and less downtime. Easy to use ink bottles are designed with distinct inlets so only the correct colour can be added to the printer ink tanks and the purpose-built bottle nozzles remove the risk of tank overspill. Ink levels can be checked at a glance thanks to ink tank windows on the front of the printer, making unexpected ink outages a problem of the past.
The MAXIFY GX5040’s large capacity paper tray split between a 100-sheet rear feed and 250 sheet front cassette also means reduced paper reloads, so the printer is always ready to go – allowing for continuous printing at volume without the need to return to the machine. As with the ink tank windows, the paper level is easily checked with a quick glance through a small window on the printer’s front cassette. For fuss-free upkeep, the maintenance cartridge can be replaced easily – saving time on sending the printer for repair or waiting for an engineer.
MAXIFY GX5040 users can operate from a desktop, laptop, or smart device for quick and convenient printing via the Canon PRINT app for iOS and Android, as well as platforms including AirPrint and Mopria. For extra convenience and security, User Management means an administrator can restrict printer functions, preventing unauthorised access and operations alongside enhanced enterprise security with WPA2-EAP.
“High-yield ink bottles mean fewer refills – cutting out the need for ink cartridges and toner. High-quality automatic duplex printing at the same density as single-sided printing also means the MAXIFY GX5040 saves on paper. Eco settings such as auto power on and off modes mean users can schedule the printer to only be operational during working hours,” the company said.
The MAXIFY GX5040 single function joins the GX6050 (print, copy scan with ADF) and GX7050 (print, copy scan, fax with D-ADF) MegaTank models in the MAXIFY GX range. Launched in 2021, the two models were introduced to provide businesses with a robust, scalable, and low total cost of ownership printing solution to meet their needs.
Suhaib Hussain, Canon Europe Product Manager for Professional Printers and Software said, “The MAXIFY GX5040 bolsters our MAXIFY GX printer range with another fantastic model. The MAXIFY GX range completely streamlines admin for smaller businesses, helping teams run everyday routines more effectively by reducing downtime and running costs. At Canon, we strive to support businesses of all sizes with the tools they need to work as efficiently as possible, with a constant eye on quality and cost.”
