Ho Chi Minh City, 25th September 2019 - Today Canon unveiled the single-function printer LBP161dn+ dedicated for the Vietnam market and manufactured in Vietnam. LBP161dn+ is specifically the single-function printer which has been researched on and manufactured to suit the needs from Vietnamese businesses with its high-capacity ink bottle and a page yield of up to 4100 pages. It is aimed to be a powerful assistant to users who have a need for monochrome printouts. On this occasion, Canon also introduced new single-function and multi-function monochrome printers of the imageCLASS series: LBP226dw, LBP228x, LBP325x, MF543x, MF445dw, MF449x with faster printing speed for higher print volumes to suit well with the need for high printing volume at small and medium enterprises. For inkjet printers, Canon added in one more multi-function printer model, PIXMA TS8370, which is stylish in design, compact in size with high performance and higher printout quality.
The single-function printer - LBP161dn+ - is manufactured in Vietnam for the Vietnam market with Japanese quality and a 2-year product warranty
LBP161dn+ is the perfect single-function laser printer which can understand the typical printing needs from Vietnamese businesses when it places printing capacity and low operation cost at its top priority. Compared with its predecessor, LBP151dw, LBP161dn+ is more compact in size, but can house a high-capacity ink bottle that promises outstanding printing performance. With its capability for duplex printing, high paper capacity, and a wide range of network connection options, this model is ideal for offices with a need for high printing volume.
“We know that high performance and low operation cost are the key for many Vietnamese businesses as they strive to maintain their competitiveness in a challenging business environment in Vietnam like today. Hence, we are proud to introduce the LBP161dn+ to specifically meet the demands from the Vietnam market alone. This innovation brings a new printing “warrior” to Vietnamese businesses that can deliver outstanding printing performance in a compact body and high operability. In addition, this model is easy to be maintained, durable, facilitating seamless workflows for businesses. I believe this new product continues to strengthen Canon’s number one position in Vietnam’s laser printer market since 2006 till now.” said Mr. Satoru Takeda, General Director of Canon Marketing Vietnam Company Limited.
Manufactured in Vietnam, with Japanese quality and a 2-year warranty
LBP161dn+ is manufactured in Vietnam, but meets strict Japanese standards with high precision and intricacy. Moreover, unlike other printer series which usually give the users a 12-month warranty, this special printer enjoys a 24-month warranty at all Canon’s authorized service centers and Le Bao Minh’s service centers across Vietnam.
Big ink bottle with capacity of up to 4100 pages
Unlike LBP151dw, its predecessor, the single-function printer LBP161dn+ is produced soley for the Vietnam market. Its size is unchanged, but its printing capacity increases remarkably thanks to the design where the ink bottle stays separate from the drum, boosting up the ink bottle capacity and a page yield of 4100 pages.
Outstanding and elevated printing speed
LBP161dn+ is surprisingly improved in speed, assisting busy offices in clearing their heavy workloads. Its printing speed now can reach 28 ppm (for A4 size) and it also supports A5 size (landscape) and A6 (portrait). The A5 printing speed is improved at 12.1 seconds, a giant leap from 49.9 seconds of its predecessor.
Besides, unlike many other laser printers that employ the power-consuming and time-consuming central heater to warm the whole fixing roller, LBP161dn+ uses Canon’s proprietary partial heating technology that reduces the warm-up time (from 8 seconds to just 5.2 seconds), saving power consumption and faster FCOT (first copy out time).
Convenient automatic duplex printing and cost-efficient
Meeting the fast pace of the business world today in Vietnam, LBP161dn+ helps users to finish their tasks faster with less waiting time. Continuing to have the automatic duplex printing feature of its predecessors, LBP161dn+ help its users to save paper thoroughy while they can still enjoy the convenience which cannot be found on single-sided printers.
LBP161dn+ supports wired network connection and a wide range of mobile printing solutions such as Canon PRINT Business, Canon Print Service, Google Cloud Print, AirPrint®, and MOPRIA™. Hence, Vietnamese users can print easily and fast from their mobile devices any where in their offices.
Highly operable and user-friendly for Vietnamese users
The 5-line LCD display with Vietnamese interface allows users to easily check the remaining ink level, change printing settings, and monitor the printer’s operation rapidly. Besides, LBP161dn+ is designed with its paper cassettes being deeply pushed backwards, hence making it easy to close its cover after paper supply.
