• Sharp enhances Office A3 colour line-up with two new MFPs

        • Sharp has announced the addition of two new high-speed colour MFPs to its Office A3 line-up. The high-performance MX-8081 and MX-7081 offer a host of productivity functions, best in class security enhancements and the same workflow features and user interface common across the Sharp range.  

          The new MFPs offer security features, such as a firmware attack prevention and a self-recovery capability, which can identify a malicious intrusion and restore the machine firmware to its original state. The whitelisting feature helps protect the machine’s file system from unauthorised access. Additionally, administrators can centrally manage select settings at the device using Active Directory Group Policy.

          Ben Lake, Senior Product Manager said, “We are proud to strengthen our leading MFP technology with these new models, offering enterprise environments with purpose-built models specifically designed to deliver best-in-class print speeds and productivity features. Coupled with Sharp’s award-winning user interface, security and advanced functionalities, the MX-8081 and MX-7081 deliver one of the most robust and reliable MFP experiences on the market.”    

          The MX-8081 and MX-7081 include Sharp's user interface, accessed via a 10.1” LCD touchscreen common across the Sharp line-up, enabling those already familiar with Sharp devices to be ready to work with the machines straight away. Cloud connectivity further streamlines interacting with the device, giving easy access to commonly used applications including Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online, Box and Google Drive. 

          The new models offer increased productivity with print speeds of up to 80 ppm and scanning speeds of up to 120 ipm one-sided and 240 ipm two-sided. The new models also feature a highly efficient 300 sheet duplex single pass feeder that scans two-sided documents in one pass, to ensure even large jobs are quick to finish. 

          The printer supports a maximum 8,500-sheet paper capacity that can be fed from separate trays on the MFP, allowing users to select different paper styles up to 300 gsm. The devices can additionally scan documents as editable text through the ‘Scan to OCR’ function. The new double-feed detection feature, designed to stop paper jams by detecting skewed or multiple sheets fed into the machine, further enhances the reliability of the new models. 

          The new models are available to buy now from Sharp and its partners.
