Large format office printers and production printers
If you’re looking for a large office printer or a fast, capable production printer then you need to take a look at Sharp. Colour or black & white, entry-level or top of the range, with an EFI Fiery controller or our own, there’s a Sharp digital production printer for every print room and Corporate Reprographics Department (CRD).
Supported by our range of Optimised Software Solutions to extend possibilities and enhance efficiency, security and ease of use, all of our production printers and large format printers, are not only rugged enough for sustained high volume production printing but they are extremely easy to use and surprisingly energy-efficient.
Choosing the right model
Before you start a production printer comparison exercise you need to consider what jobs you’re likely to be tasked with and what production print skills you have in-house.
If you already have one or more of our large office printers or Multi-Functional Printers (MFPs), and are thinking about expanding your fleet to include a Sharp production printer or one of our large format printers – perhaps to provide variable data printing, or to gain industry-leading workflows with exceptional colour fidelity, it’s worth considering a model with a Fiery Digital Front End (DFE).
Some of our models have an integrated Fiery Gateway, which can toggle between Fiery and Sharp’s native controller, giving you the best of both worlds.
Unique to Sharp, the Fiery Gateway gives experienced operators one-touch access to EFI’s market-leading Command WorkStation, without installing a separate workstation. Any machine or media adjustments that you want to make can be handled directly from the control panel. There’s no clutter and no fuss, just instant and effortless control over your entire fleet of digital production printers.
If you’re investing in your first digital production printer and you don’t yet have the skills or experience to master one of the more sophisticated DFEs, you may want to choose a Sharp production printer that’s equipped with our own, fully integrated controller.
In this case, you’ll get a large colour touch screen with finger-swipe control that simplifies every operation. And, because most jobs can be automated from start to finish, there’s almost no operator intervention and very little chance of error.
Every Sharp production printer is capable of high quality output on a wide range of media. In fact, they have everything that you’d expect to find in a first-class digital production printer except complexity!
