Canon Refreshes imageCLASS Lineup to Help Meet Big Demands of Small Businesses

New imageCLASS Models to Deliver Consistent Design, Reliable Performance and Intuitive User Experience

BRAMPTON, ON., April 3, 2017 – Canon Canada, Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the addition of nine new models that refresh and replace its best-selling Colour and Black-and-White imageCLASS models. Designed to provide a level of performance to businesses that is on closer par with equipment sold to larger offices, the new Colour imageCLASS MF735Cdw/MF733Cdw/MF731Cdw/MF634Cdw/MF632Cdw/LPB654Cdw/LPB612Cdw and Monochrome imageCLASS LPB312dn and D570 printers offer enhanced performance and a more vivid, vibrant image quality compared with predecessor versions.

The Colour imageCLASS MF735Cdw, MF733Cdw and MF634Cdw models are “all-in-one” devices with print, scan, copy and fax capabilities while the MF731Cdw and MF632Cdw models are “three-in-one” with their ability to print, scan and copy.

The Colour imageCLASS MF735Cdw, MF733Cdw and MF731Cdw printers are designed for a recommended monthly print volume of approximately 750 - 4,000 sheets and allow for an expandable paper capacity of up to 850 sheets. Alternatively, the MF634Cdw and MF632Cdw models are positioned for those printing at a recommended monthly print volume of approximately 200 -2,500 sheets with a paper capacity of up to 151 sheets.

Intuitive User Experience
Users will be welcomed by a new, streamlined control panel and user interface. The touch panel for all four models has been increased from 3.5 to 5 inches, representing a “best in class” industry screen size for the MF634Cdw/MF632Cdw, to allow for more on-screen options and features, cell-phone-like “flick” technology for ease of navigation, and a digital QWERTY keyboard to help users enter data more easily. The display also offers visual guides to assist users in getting the most out of their printer and troubleshooting any issues that may arise. Users on the go will be able to take advantage of built-in Wi-Fi® Direct Connection1 capabilities, allowing users to print from a variety of locations in their home or office without the need to access a separate network. A remote user interface allows users to access the status of their job, including paper and toner status.

Enhanced Performance

Speed is an integral component of a successful printing operation for small businesses dealing with severe time constraints and limited staff. These devices feature major speed upgrades from their predecessors with MF730 Series models now providing a speed of up to 28 pages-per-minute (ppm) and up to19 ppm for the MF630 Series devices. To further speed up workflows, the imageCLASS MF735Cdw, MF733Cdw and MF634Cdw models both feature single pass, two-sided scanning to allow for more efficient processing of double-sided documents by scanning both sides of the original document in one pass through the duplex, automatic document feeder.  

Vivid, Vibrant Colour Output
The new imageCLASS printers take advantage of Canon’s V2 colour technology that is typically reserved for more expensive equipment to expand the colour-reproduction rage for more vivid and vibrant output. Through V2 technology, printed documents feature improved saturation and sharpness to highlight details and heighten colour. Users will find that their printed documents accurately reflect the clarity and richness of the original image, an important component for those operations producing high quality business prints and rich colour images.

Larger Toner Cartridges
Intended to reduce customer maintenance requirements and downtime, all four models leverage new hi-yield and standard yield consumables that are significantly larger than predecessor versions. The MF730 models offer 6,300 page (black) and 5,000 page (cyan, magenta, yellow) hi-yield cartridges, as well as standard version consumables offering 2,200 page (black) and 2,300 page (cyan, magenta, yellow). The MF630 models offer 2,800 page (black) and 2,200 page (cyan, magenta, yellow) hi-yield cartridges, as well as standard version consumables offering 1,400 page (black) and 1,300 page (cyan, magenta, yellow).

Enhanced Workgroup Capabilities
Today’s businesses, from hospitals to financial institutions to law offices, require a combination of equipment that supports the needs of departments, workgroups and individuals. The imageCLASS LBP312dn (45 ppm black-and-white) printer, Colour imageCLASS MF735Cdw (28 ppm multifunction) printer and Colour imageCLASS LBP654Cdw (28 ppm colour) printers offer faster speeds, increased toner cartridge capacities and an improved user experience, when compared with their predecessors. Additionally, the MF735Cdw and LBP654Cdw leverage a new device platform called Application Library which empowers users to create and access their own customized workflows via an easily navigable remote interface and a new five-inch colour touch screen, respectively, to help improve operational efficiency and control.

The new imageCLASS models expand the available assortment of desktop-ready Canon printers that can be leveraged throughout an organization as a complement to more centralized imageRUNNER ADVANCE equipment. Common optional tools such as the uniFLOW solution, imageWARE Remote and Canon Managed Document Services can be employed to help manage the fleet, from optimizing print workflows and security features, to managing supplies, service and maintenance.
