Sharp — Devoted to Innovation

Sharp imaging systems stand as an innovator in the document business, drawing on five decades of technological expertise. This admired company presents a new line of production printers, reflecting Sharp$#39;s commitment to being a"Business Partner" by supporting companies and other organizations with professional-class print, copy, and production. Sharp Production Printers Commercial-Grade allow business to print directly from file to a variety of media. This blog examines new innovations by Sharp to enhance production printers productivity and security for modern businesses and print shops.

Sharp Conservation

Sharp's focus on energy conservation is noteworthy. Technological advancements in toner development play a crucial role in achieving energy-saving goals. Things like lowering the fusing temperature, reducing toner particle size, and optimizing toner material design are some key strategies Sharp deploys to sustain our environment.

Sharp's hardware innovations reduce power consumption. Adopting the pad fixing method, a technology applied for the first time, resulted in up to a 30% reduction in power consumption of the fusing unit compared to the previous models. The extended lifespan of the fusing belt, achieved through meticulous design and control, further contributes to energy efficiency.


Sharp Printers for Workgroup Settings


The New Workforce

Sharp production printing products adapt to changing work styles. The changing landscape of virtual offices, telecommuting, video conferencing, and remote work requires seamless connectivity with cloud services like Google Drive and Dropbox, enabling easy data sharing. Sharp integrates its products with Microsoft TeamsTM to enhance collaboration for users engaged in remote work.

Office Aesthetics and Environmental Commitment

Sharp's aesthetic design philosophy shifts to a chic gray exterior of its print devices aligning with modern office spaces. An emblem of the leaf badge displayed on the exterior of the printers reflects Sharp's commitment to reducing environmental impact.
