Sharp’s compact design high performance MFPs

Sharp is offering the functionality of larger A3 MFPs but with a footprint more suited to small or crowded spaces with the launch of its latest black and white multifunction products (MFPs). The 31 pages per minute (ppm) MX-M310 and the 26-ppm MX-M260 will appeal to those who want maximum performance and versatility without sacrificing space.

Both models can be supplied with an innovative inner finisher, which substantially reduces the overall footprint by providing automatic sorting, stapling and offset stacking capabilities without the need to add on a bulky external unit.

"These new machines offer customers all the features they need in a neat, compact design that doesn't waste valuable space," said Marc Brion, MFP product manager, Sharp Electronics (UK) Ltd. "What's more they can start with the configuration they need today and add more functions as their needs evolve."

In addition to the space-saving Inner Finisher, customers can also specify faxing, network printing, network scanning and extra paper drawers. The MX-M310 and MX-M260 have the looks to match their performance, too. Contemporary design and elegant curves make them an ideal addition to today's modern environment.

For security an optional Data Security Kit can be added to encrypt data and securely erase it after use, as well as a secure network interface to prevent unknown users from gaining access. Other security features include passwords, PINs and user authentication to control print runs and protect each of the MFP's functions.

To reduce environmental impact, both models comply with the latest Energy Star Version 1.1 criteria and come with two-sided printing and copying as standard to help reduce the amount of paper used.
