Sharp releases new workgroup document systems

New Sharp workgroup document systems deliver productivity with touchscreen ease, scan efficiency and access on the move

Introducing a new generation of office workers that will get the job done without a motivational pep talk! Sharp’s new colour workgroup document systems, the MX-5141N and MX-4141N, are ultra-productive document hubs that will be a valued addition to any medium to large office.

Not just your average printer/copiers, these workstations are packed full of user-friendly, productivity enhancing features – from on-screen editing and multiple document finishing options, to mobile access and extra-large job capacity.

The devices will take your print jobs to the next level, with breathtaking image quality, rendering text documents, photographs, illustrations, maps, and graphs – including fine lines and small print – with outstanding precision and clarity, thanks to true 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution.

All the touch screen gestures users have come to love on mobile devices are enabled on the 10.1” full colour LCD dual-touch screen display with tiltable panel. Simply flick, tap, slide, drag and pinch your way to preview, edit and choose finishes. No fuss features let you add a logo or watermark at the time of copying, or even scan an image into a document you’re copying.

Last minute jobs will also be no worries with copy/print speeds of up to 51 ppm on the MX-5141N and up to 41 ppm on the MX-4141N (in both Black and Colour).

Mark Beard, National Marketing Manager for Sharp Corporation of Australia, said the outputs of both new document systems were truly impressive.

“Sharp’s new colour workgroup document systems offer outstanding image quality and performance and can help any medium to large business elevate their office productivity. Importantly, there’s no extensive training needed to operate them – even first time users will find these systems a breeze to use,” Beard said.

Not just sleek and streamlined, these document systems are also smart! Sharpdesk mobile connects the workstation to mobile devices via Wi-Fi, adapting document usage to today’s changing work styles. Documents scanned on the system can be sent to a mobile device to preview and save, and documents saved on a mobile device can be printed out, sent as email attachments, or used in other applications.

There’s no job too big for these machines either, accommodating an optional tandem drawer with a paper capacity of 2,000 sheets – making a total potential paper capacity of 6,600 sheets. This allows for extra-large volume jobs to be completed with ease.

Loose lips sink ships, but these document systems will keep your business top secret with a multi-layered security system. The standard-equipped security functions allow encrypting and erasing of data on the HDD, secure network access such as IP/MAC address filtering, and SSL, IEEE802.1X support, which allows only authenticated devices to use the network. Documents accessed on mobile devices will also be secure with the wireless connection isolated from the wired Ethernet connection to keep it secure.

These new models will help you represent your business in just the right way and save money. With a wide array of finishing options including saddle-stitch finisher and punch, these new products can produce professional-looking colour documents in-house.

Your accountant will thank you for investing in these systems with the money you’ll save on energy usage. The workstations boast one of the lowest power consumption rates in their class, complying with the International Energy Star Program, RoHS.

A tidy, but impactful addition to the office, the MX-5141N and MX-4141N measure just 64.8(w) x 76.4(d) x 96.0(h) and weigh in at 126kg.

The Sharp MX-5141N, RRP $33,990, and MX-4141N, RRP $28,069, are available at national authorised Sharp dealers and Sharp Direct branches in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra. For further product information and full specifications visit
