Canon expands MAXIFY GX range with new GX6550, built for compact office environments

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 17th July 2023 – Canon Europe today announces the expansion of its ever-dependable MAXIFY range for office environments with a high frequency of customers, with the GX6550. This front-accessible 3-in-1 printer offers versatile media handling, producing business-quality documents at speed – offering average savings of 90% on the total cost of ownership1, thanks to high print volumes and refillable inks.


Consistent productivity for every environment

No matter what field of work you’re in – from hospitality to pharmacy, or even car hire – the compact yet highly-efficient MAXIFY GX6550 fits perfectly into any space, particularly in smaller areas like shelves or cabinet units. Its user-friendly 2.7” colour LCD touch screen and front-accessible, two-sided automatic document feeder (ADF) means the GX6550 is convenient to use, enabling every business to build printing and scanning into efficient customer workflows. It is easy to check the print status with the translucent tray, even when the device is positioned with limited accessibility, such as under a desk. 

Its low running cost and huge page yields, with a 250-sheet cassette and 100-sheet rear feed, make it ideal for printing a large quantity of documents at speeds of 24 ipm in black and 15.5 ipm in colour. In Standard mode2, users can print up to 6,000 sheets from a black ink bottle and 14,000 from a single set of colour ink bottles. For even greater savings, users can switch to Economy mode3, increasing page yield to 9,000 for black ink and 21,000 for colour.

Don’t compromise on quality

The MAXIFY GX6550 offers versatile media handling, providing businesses with the opportunity to create a wide variety of high quality, durable point of sale materials in-house. This includes invoices, rental agreements, menus, posters, envelopes, and stickers. Users can even scan ID and insurance cards – the smart design negates the need to open the scanner fully – as well as print banners up to 1.2m in length. The pigment-based inks deliver documents that are marker, friction and water resistant.

Stay connected and secure

Enhanced security keeps the GX6550 safe on your network, while Wi-Fi allows cable-free printing from the Canon PRINT app, Apple AirPrint (IOS), Mopria (Android) and the cloud. It works with all major computer operating systems, including Mac, Windows and Chrome, and is compatible with Canon’s Auto-Ink Delivery service.

  1. The total cost of ownership (TCO) is based on the initial purchase cost of hardware plus the costs of ink or toner over a fixed period (see below for conditions). Please note that additional variable costs may influence the total cost of ownership, including but not limited to other consumables, ink and toner bundles, high yield ink and toner packs, servicing, power consumption and replacement parts.
    The percentage cost savings stated represent an estimation of the total cost savings for the specified print volume of 1000 pages a month (50% colour and 50% mono) over a period of 60 months (5 years).
    Further details on TCO calculation available.
  2. Page yield of ink bottle used for initial setup is lower than a replacement as a certain amount of ink is used to fill the print head during setup. Page yield is the estimated value based on Canon's individual test method using the ISO/IEC 24712 colour chart and continuous printing simulation with the replacement ink bottles after initial setup. Black and colour page yields are not to be combined. Page yield varies significantly depending on contents printed and other factors.
  3. The economy mode reduces the ink consumption by lowering the density (up to 50% of the standard mode page yield).
