Sharp has announced a new series of compact colour multifunction printers, with the smallest footprint of any A3 colour laser MFP. The new entry-level BP series devices have a cubic design and make quality colour printing, scanning and copying accessible to a wider range of organisations.
The BP10C20, BP20C20 and BP20C25 slot neatly into any office space and are even suitable to have on the desk, as their best in class footprint (560mm x 560mm) is as small as some A4 devices. The compact design and flexibility to add additional paper trays as required ensure a fast and easy installation as a floor standing or desktop device.
The models print at speeds of up to 25 ppm and offer scanning speeds of up to 37 opm. The printers support a maximum 1,850-sheet paper capacity that can be fed from separate trays on the MFP, allowing users to select different paper styles dependent on the type of printing required, including labels, envelope, A6, glossy or heavy paper.
Rachel Dean, Product Business Manager, Sharp Document Solutions said, “printing is still a significant part of the day to day running of businesses. With the introduction of this new series we can cater to the needs of organisations with more limited space and budget, while still delivering Sharp’s trademark range of office productivity features.”
Simple and intuitive features include a 4-inch operation panel that can display five lines of content for easy operation and can be adjusted for ease of use and better visibility. Optional features for the new series include wireless connectivity and wi-fi, enabling easy everyday office printing from mobile devices, tablets and laptops, while BP20C20 and BP20C25 include fax.
Extra functions that support flexible working and improve efficiency include direct USB printing and the ability to scan to multiple destinations. The ID card copy feature lets users copy the front and back of ID cards onto a single page with a single button, ideal for improving customer service times in hotel lobbies, banks and other customer-facing service industries.
