Designed primarily for business use, they feature a four-colour (CMYK) pigment-based ink system, housed in a compact desktop design. The new printers are the first in the MAXIFY range to offer refillable MegaTank ink tank technology and claim the capacity to print up to 14,000 A4 pages from a single set of colour ink bottles, up to 6,000 pages from a single bottle of black ink. They also feature of a user-friendly, easy-to-replace maintenance cartridge to collect any wasted-ink generated during normal printing and cleaning operation, which also reduces the need to send the printer away for servicing.

Both models can print on sheet papers up to A4 size and banners up to 1.2 metres in length. They include print, scan and copy functions and deliver output resolution of 600 x 1200 dpi. Scanning resolution is 1200 x 1200 dpi. Both models include an auto document feeder and support auto-duplexing.  Both include a 2.7-inch colour LCD touch-screen interface and offer USB, Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity.

The MAXIFY GX6060 MegaTank printer has a total paper capacity of 350 sheets across its two paper trays. It is more compact, measuring 399 x 410 x 254 mm and will be sold priced at AUD$999 (RRP). It will be available nationwide exclusively at Harvey Norman from late July 2021.

The MAXIFY GX7060 MegaTank printer has the same basic specifications as the GX6060 model but includes a fax function, auto-duplex scanning and a higher paper capacity of 600 sheets, thanks to an additional paper cassette. Measuring 399 x 410 x 314 mm, it will be available nationwide from all leading retailers from late July 2021 at an RRP of AUD$1,249.
