Automation and the Sharp Pro Series (An InfoTrends White Paper)
In today’s changing market environment, print service providers of all types are looking to turn around jobs quicker in the most automated fashion with the fewest errors. At the same time, they are also looking to provide value to their customers in the form of more timely, focused, and accessible content. Providing operators with powerful production tools is a key part of this equation. Over the past year, product introductions in the production color digital print market have been pushing the envelope, providing higher speeds and new capabilities at very attractive price points. The Sharp Pro Series products are a great example of this trend.
Sharp’s Pro Color Series Color Document Systems, introduced in September of 2013, is made up of two models: the 75 ppm MX-7500N and the 65 ppm MX-6500N. Intended for graphic arts in-plants, central reprographic departments, and on-demand environments, the Pro Series has several features that differentiate it from competitive models. These include the ability to produce a full-bleed color booklet with a single knife trim, a user-friendly front-end system, a reliable paper-feed system, and a very compact footprint.
In this Sharp-sponsored white paper, InfoTrends explores the features of production color digital print systems.
