It’s time to ditch your expensive outsourced printing and do it all in-house! This economical light-production system can make professional booklets and brochures with ease. Sharp’s top-of-the-line Polaris Pro series consists of the Sharp MX-6500N and MX-7500N. They print at 65 pages per minute and 75 pages per minute, respectively. They have several features and specs that set them apart from the competition. Not only do they have a smaller footprint, but they are capable of printing in ways that machines from other manufacturers simply cannot. You’ll get all of the normal MFP functions like network printing in brilliant 1200 x 1200 DPI and network color scanning along with countless other features.
Edge-to-Edge Full Bleed Printing with Polaris Pro
Sharp Polaris Pro can print edge to edge (top to bottom) on an 11 x 17 sheet of paper. This is the first huge advantage over the competition. In heavy printing environments one of the biggest expenses is purchasing paper. Most full-bleed capable printers have to print on 12 x 18 and trim it down. You will save 30-40% on your paper budget buying 11 x 17 rather than 12 x 18! On the leading and trailing edge there is a 5mm white space for the machine to register the paper passing through, which is promptly trimmed off using the MX-TM10 trimming unit. The MX-FN22 saddle stitch finisher can staple up to 20 sheets when saddle stitching, effectively creating an 80 page booklet. The result looks like the image below.
The Sharp MX-6500N, MX-7500N Polaris Pro boasts the smallest footprint for full-bleed printers in the industry. Configured with the options required for full-bleed booklets it is only 7 feet long. Of course there are several other options that can add additional functionality and create a larger footprint, but if space is a concern the Polaris Pro can fit in most workrooms with ease. The minimum configuration for booklet printing with the addition of a large capacity cassette is shown below.
