Canon launches new flagship wide format printer

Canon says the W6200 is equally suited to copy shops, art reproduction, photography and prepress departments. It accommodates print media up to 24″ wide and incorporates Canon’s one-inch-wide, high-density print head.

Steven Brown, Canon Australia national product manager for production and graphic arts, says the W6200 will lead the way in pigment-ink based wide format printers.

“Canon pigment inks provide sustained colour in UV environments, delivering increased durability and lifespan of the printed output without any loss in colour gamut size compared to dye inks. We believe that Canon’s pigment ink will be the new standard for wide format printers, and this device is the first of our models that will operate exclusively using pigment-ink,” Brown says.

“In addition, the W6200 is easily the fastest printer in its class with the ability to save precious minutes on even the most demanding print jobs. It is a highly sophisticated printer, while retaining a user-friendliness that ensures any user will be able to produce stunning results with the device.”

Based on Canon’s exclusive Bubble Jet technology, the W6200 utilises the same print head technology as the successful W8200. Canon’s print head technology incorporates 7680 tiny ink nozzles – 1280 for each of the six colours. The W6200 is capable of printing an A1 page in less than two minutes, and in its highest quality mode, the W6200 will print at 1200x1200dpi.

The W6200 can also print full bleed, ensuring no white borders and this versatility makes it simpler for quick printers and graphics designers to produce finished print products without the need to trim edges.
