Canon is rolling out a new line of PIXMA printers: TS9521C, TS9520, TS9520, TS8220, TS6220, and TR4520. These models range from craft-focused printers to SOHO multifunctions with the price tag from $100 to $250.
PIXMA TS9521C is designed specifically for crafters and scrapbookers, not a regular Canon’s target audience. It supports pages up to 12 by 12 inches (most commonly used in scrapbooking), includes 45 built-in patterns for adorning the paper, and features a 4.3-inch touchscreen for navigating the menu.
HP Inc has posted an update to address a pair of serious security vulnerabilities in its InkJet printers.
The firmware update patches CVE-2018-5924 and CVE-2018-5925, two flaws that can be exploited by printing a file that triggers a stack or static buffer overflow, giving you the ability to then execute malicious code on the targeted printer.
Zebra Technologies Corporation has launched two new healthcare barcode printers that can identify patients and specimens at the point of care.
Zebra’s ZQ600-Healthcare series label printers and ZD510-HC direct thermal wristband printer produce highly durable labels and patient identification wristbands used to accurately and efficiently pair patients to the correct medical records, care staff, medication and specimens.
Ink cartridges lasting for a year — that’s what Brother’s new MFC-J995DW multifunction inkjet printer proposes. It’s the first model to use the company’s new INKvestment Tank system that provides a year’s worth of ink before needing replacement.
According to Brother, the INKvestment Tank is the successor to the INKvestment series, which was developed based on how people were using printers. Replacing ink, and frequency and cost of doing it were the main things causing pain to consumers, and INKvestment Tank series take addressing adresses these points to another level.
There are some obvious thing you know you don’t want to see in your current printer. Slow print times, frequent paper jams and lack of network connectivity — all those are hints at the obvious: it’s time to pull the plug and invest in a new printer.
Yet, there are things that are not so obvious.
Visitors are unable to use your printer without giving the receptionist files on a flash-drive, sharing scanned documents with colleagues takes too many steps, and require too many devices. Or when the printer stops working, there’s only one person around to fix the problem, and he’s not actually around.
When it’s time for upgrade, look for these innovations to keep your work flowing.
You don’t have to be cast away on a desert island to write messages on the sand to get attention. Just get yourself this automated sand printer to get your message across. To your significant other, for instance.
Ivan Miranda has designed and built an autonomous printer that can draw messages in sand, so now’s probably a good time to brace yourself for an endless barrage of “will you marry me?” beach proposals clogging up your feeds.
We all know Xiaomi and Huawei as the manufacturers of affordable yet decent smatrphones and electronic gadgets. That may be changing soon as news has it that Xiaomi and Huawei are entering the printer market this summer.
Xerox releases a new a universal print driver that makes device management simpler for network administrators and keeps more printers, documents and information connected and protected. Importaantly, it supports both Xerox and non-Xerox printers.
The new Xerox Global Print Driver® V4 was developed to ensure a consistent and user-friendly experience on Windows 10 as well as other operating systems.
When introduced in 2015, supertank printers like the Canon Pixma G4210 aimed to remedy the high cost of printer ink refills. Instead of pricey cartridges, the first supertank printers relied on reservoirs that you could replenish individually with a $12 bottle of cyan, magenta, or yellow ink. Enough to last you two years.
But the early models couldn’t match the inkjets in terms of text and graphics quality. Things have changed in the past few years.
With the price of $300, the Canon might be a big red flag, even though it’s one of the least expensive tank models. It would require just $20 more over the course of four years—for a grand total of $320.
The G4210 comes with many useful features, including WiFi connectivity, fax capability, and OCR (optical character recognition) software, which allows the text in a scanned document to be edited in a word processor program.
The printer cannot auto-duplex (print on both sides of a sheet of paper), and its LCD is black-and-white. That may disappoint those who enjoy previewing photos in color before printing them.
While the Pixma G4210 won’t satisfy everyone, it hits all the major notes people care about. And if you can commit the $300, there’s no reason to hesitate if you want to save money on ink.
Additive manufacturing companies put in a lot of time, effort, and money to develop innovative 3D printers that are capable of large-scale and full-color printing, 3D printing with materials like metal, foam, and human tissue, and can produce components both quickly and slowly, as well as on the move.
Then of course, there are the seemingly crazy ideas for 3D printers that really take flight – and I do mean that literally. At TCT Asia 2018, Chinese 3D printer manufacturer DediBot introduced a flying 3D printer.
