Sharp has launched two new high-performance light production monochrome MFPs, built for managing busy, on-demand printing environments. The high-speed MX-M1056 and MX-M1206 offer improved productivity functions and security enhancements.
The new models are equipped with enhanced productivity features, delivering scanning speeds of up to 240 ppm and print speeds of up to 120 ppm, with fast warm-up times and a paper capacity that can hold up to 13,500 sheets for even longer continuous printing. For a wider variety of professionally finished corporate documents, users can select from various paper styles, with standard paper sizes up to SRA3/A3 wide and paper thicknesses up to 300gsm. The MFPs also offer a broad selection of advanced finishing capabilities, including the new GBC SmartPunch technology for adding creases and perforations, ultimately contributing to cost reduction by in-house production of marketing materials.
The new monochrome MFPs give print room operators complete control of their workflows through one interface, accessed via a tiltable 15.4” colour LCD touchscreen.
Ben Lake, Senior Product Manager, Sharp said, “centralised Reprographic Departments (CRDs) and in-house print-rooms need production printers that won’t let them down and can guarantee the sustained high performance necessary for the most demanding of print jobs. The new MX-M1056 and MX-M1206 combine functionality and security with highspeed printing and scanning, supporting sophisticated job management and high productivity to complete more jobs and higher volumes.”
Alongside Sharp’s production print technology, the printers can be integrated with EFI Fiery Digital Print Server, offering subset finishing and variable data printing. The MFPs also enable access to an expanded list of cloud services such as OneDrive, Google Drive, SharePoint Online and Dropbox. Easy integration to existing network applications and public cloud services means information can be securely shared and accessed anywhere, anytime, helping to increase productivity.
The MX-M1056 and MX-M1206 deliver resilient and advanced security features, including firmware attack prevention and a self-recovery capability, which can identify a malicious intrusion and restore the machine firmware to its original state. A whitelist protection program control and validation of SSL certificates help protect the machines' file system from unauthorised access.
