80PPM A3 Colour High-Volume MFD with DSPF

The Sharp MX8081 colour document system is built using the latest technology available to deliver the performance, features and reliability needed in today’s busy workplace environments.

Built for high-volume environments, central reprographics departments and copy rooms, the MX8081 is complemented by the robust paper handling and productive output capabilities. This MFD also offers leading-edge security features to help businesses protect their data and personal information.

Paired with the optional MXPE15, an industry-leading EFI™ Fiery embedded server, the MX8081 becomes a powerful integrated solution for managing professional in-plant and busy on-demand printing environments.


10.1-inch Touchscreen

With a variety of functions accessible via simple, intuitive icons, the MFD operation is smooth and easy. Customising the home screen has become easier than ever and the control panel can be tilted freely at various angles.

Duplex Single Pass Feeder

With Skewed Sheet Detection sensors that detect images that are not fed in straight and the Multi-Feed Detection that stops when two or more originals are fed at once, this 300-sheet DSPF can scan up to 240 opm (originals per minute; two-sided).

Built-In Retractable Keyboard

Designed to simplify e-mail address and subject line entries, as well as repetitive scanning tasks and user authentication, the standard built-in keyboard offers users a familiar ergonomic interface.

Air-Feed System

For smooth paper handling and travel, an air feed system on the optional MXLC13N Large Capacity Trays minimises paper jams and the feeding of more than one sheet at a time when using various media types.

Convert Documents via OCR

With standard OCR capabilities, users can easily scan and convert documents to popular file formats including Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel, as well as Searchable PDF & Encrypted PDF. Using Qualcomm DirectOffice technology, you can directly print these same file types from USB thumb drives, cloud applications and mobile devices.

Intermediate Toner Hopper for Continuous Runs

Thanks to an intermediate toner hopper, there’s no need to stop the MFD during large volume copy/print jobs when the toner cartridge needs changing. The MX7081 & MX8081 series can use toner from the toner hopper to continue printing while the empty toner cartridge is replaced with a new one.

Cloud Services

Seamlessly collaborate with colleagues, even when they are working remotely. With the Cloud Connect option, businesses gain access to popular cloud services including Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, and others. The Sharp Application Portal also makes it easy for administrators to add new or update existing applications directly from the MFD touchscreen.

Sharp OSA®

Sharp OSA® technology can help businesses enhance productivity, reduce costs, and simplify IT management. Utilising industry-standard protocols, Sharp MFPs can easily integrate with third-party applications directly from the operation panel. Using secure and scalable communications, Sharp OSA cloud-ready technology further expands flexibility in how the document workflow and security solutions are implemented.

Full Front Access

Particularly convenient during toner cartridge replacement, an unlikely paper jam, and other operations, full front access to all key machine components ensures easy maintenance—and maximum uptime.
