The role of print within business environments is changing and becoming more specialised. Organisations with in-house printing needs, such as marketing departments, schools, and government agencies, have traditionally used light production printers to maintain control over their printing processes. For many, precision print at volume is a key ingredient to their continued success.
However, SMEs that require frequent and consistent printing of marketing materials, reports, brochures, and other documents with professional quality will also see benefits from such in-house capabilities, as they deliver a balance between quality, volume, and cost-effectiveness, without the heavy-duty demands of industrial-scale production.
With the introduction of the Sharp BP-90C80 and Sharp BP-90C70 models across Europe, we are expanding our portfolio of innovative solutions aimed at SMEs looking to deliver growth in ever smarter ways.
New models in brief
The flexible modular design of both the Sharp BP-90C80 and BP-90C70 allows for a variety of configurations from small to large, enabling devices to print at full engine speed even with 220 gsm heavy media. With this level of performance, organisations can bring more print jobs in-house, improving efficiency and saving money. Sharing many of the same features, the models largely differ in print speeds:
The Sharp BP-90C80 has been designed for both high-volume office and light production environments and is capable of printing 80-ppm in colour and in Black & White.
The Sharp BP-90C70 by contrast offers print speeds of 75/70 ppm in Black & White and colour, respectively.
Both models offer a powerful multi-processor controller designed to quickly execute complex copy, print, and scan jobs with a 2,400 x 2,400 dpi resolution for razor sharp graphics and text. Additionally, the triple air-feed paper handling option delivers high reliability and enhanced media capability, designed to make the most of the 13,500-sheet paper capacity.
Sharp BP-90C80 and BP-90C70 Key Features
The Sharp BP-90C80 and BP-90C70 both feature a large, easy to use, 15.4-inch touchscreen display built on an award-winning design that delivers an accurate, responsive user experience. It is complemented by an adjustable keyboard, making data entry, setup, and last-minute documents changes simple tasks.
Sharp engineers have crafted a strong engine design that incorporates the latest in image processing technology to help deliver full-rated speed even on heavy weight media, enabling operators to get their work done quickly.
Integration with Fiery Command Workstation makes job management and late stage edits easy. Both models offer advanced colour management across a full range of jobs, guaranteeing colour consistency and management through profiling and troubleshooting for maximum accuracy. Furthermore, the latest additions to the Sharp Pro Series offer advanced control for local and remote Mac and PC clients to edit, submit and preview jobs before printing without sacrificing speed.
Both models come with a wide range of configurations, from basic high-speed copying and printing to professional high-end folding and finishing, including a 300-sheet Duplex Single Pass Feeder (DSPF) option that scans documents at up to 240 images per minute. Thus enabling your business to deliver the best that print has to offer.
What’s more, both the Sharp BP-90C80 and BP-90C70 expand on the exclusive edge-to-edge printing capabilities, simplifying full-bleed printing applications from A3 size full-bleed booklets to A4 & A5 size pamphlets, long paper and more. A range of paper types are also accounted for, with coated, uncoated and textured stock up to 360gsm in weight is supported from the input tray through to a choice of finishing systems
At Sharp Europe we place a priority on your security, that is why we offer strong, multi-layered security features such as system integrity check, intrusion detection, and have even partnered with industry-leader Bitdefender to offer optional anti malware to help protect your data.
Collaboration is at the heart of the new models, as accessing and sharing files and folders with workers using popular cloud services, such as Microsoft Teams, Google Drive, and Dropbox comes as standard.
Sustainability is high on every agenda, and this would not be a Sharp product without moving the green story forward. Which is why with the Sharp BP-90C80 and BP-90C70 we offer lower energy consumption rates across both toner and scan technologies, even achieving Blue Angel certification. The use of new low melt toner enhances image quality, colour balance and density, while providing higher performance and reliability. In addition, Sharp also uses fully recyclable materials for packaging, and long-life consumable parts.
Overall, from media handling to workflow and collaboration, the Sharp BP-90C70 and BP-90C80 models deliver the features businesses need to get the job done.
