Sharp manufactures printers as standalone units or as part of multifunction printer, scanner, fax and copier machines. Sharp printers come in both black-and-white and color production models, and many are network-ready and use laser printing technology.
Standalone Sharp printers often feature small footprints that allow them to fit on tables or counters in offices, and these models typically have full-glide trays that allow for quick replacement of paper and toner as needed. Sharp printers are often designed for work in busy office environments, and some boast printing speeds in excess of 71 pages per minute. Integrated duplexers and offset stackers simplify organizing documents, and a simple Web-based interface is available on many models.
Multifunction Sharp printers tackle a variety of tasks. These systems often have integrated fax and copy capabilities, and many of them also scan and can email directly from the device without the need for external software. Digital displays up to 15.4 inches in size allow users to access all of the functions of these machines, and some have advanced security features to ensure only authorized employees can access the many functions available on the devices. A wide selection of both standalone and multifunction printers from Sharp meets or exceeds ENERGY STAR requirements for energy conservation.
