Sharp AR Series – Prices, Information & Reviews

Sharp AR Photocopiers

Specifically designed to provide the home office user or small workplace with a compact and robust multifunction production solution, the Sharp AR series of mono photocopiers offers a suite of high performance capabilities, ensuring reliability and efficiency for everyday print tasks, while providing the enhanced tools for the processing of more complex paper driven projects.

Sharp AR 203E

The Sharp AR 203E has a standard paper holding capacity of 300 sheets which can be increased to a maximum of 550 and can take sheets from A6 to A4 in size. It may seem that it has a fairly modest memory capacity of 8 MB, but one must bear in mind that considering the size of the machine this is more than adequate. Unfortunately, unlike a lot of multifunction printers, the Sharp AR-203E does not support a fax function as standard or as an optional extra.

Sharp AR 5618 / AR 5618D / AR 5618N

Ideal for everyday low volume photocopying, scanning and printing, the Sharp AR 5618 can print up to 18 black and white pages per minute. It also comes with built-in full colour A3 scanning and fast photocopying, with a wait time of only 7 seconds and a continuous copy capacity of up to 999 copies. Printing, photocopying and scanning can also be done to a range of sizes, with this copier able to work with anything from A6 up to A3.

Printing speeds of 18ppm for A4 black and white copies (11ppm for A3) and with a maximum paper capacity of 1100 sheets (350 standard) means that there will be no compromise to productivity or functionality, while the adoption of the optional 40-sheet Reversing Single Pass Feeder will further enhance performance.

Sharp AR 5620 / AR 5620D / AR 5620N

The Sharp AR 5620 is a black and white printer, copier and scanner. It has a rated speed of 20 pages per minute and offers colour scanning. It has a paper capacity of 600 to 1100 and contains a separation roller for smooth paper flow and fewer paper jams.

The Sharp AR 5620, AR 5620D and AR 5620N have some versatile editing options such as dual page copy mode, rotation copy, margin shift, edge/centre erase and 2 in 1/ 4 in 1 which makes copying more convenient. The built in duplex module ensures that duplex copies can be produced automatically from one or two sided originals and this can be made even more efficient if the optional 40 sheet reversing single pass feeder is used.

Sharp AR 5623 / AR 5623D / AR 5623N

The Sharp AR-5623 delivers the multifunctional outputs of larger models and the convenience of a 591 x 567 x 595 mm desktop unit. With copy, print and scan capabilities, plus an optional network expansion kit, the compact AR 5623 is an ideal solution for a small business or office work group.

The AR 5623, AR 5623D and AR 5623N are capable of handling 23 pages per minute for black and white copies, equivalent to almost 1,400 pages per hour. For print runs of this size, the model also features an electronic sorting function meaning multiple copies of documents are automatically collated into the correct order.

Sharp AR 5726 / AR 5731

The Sharp AR-5726 black and white digital copier would make the ideal solution for the small but productive office as it offers a combination of high performance and powerful delivery guaranteed to meet the requirements of the most demanding environments.

The AR 5731 is ideal for any small to medium size office. It is capable of printing 31 ppm (pages per minute) in black and white, and includes automatic double sided printing and SPLC (Sharp Printer Language with Compression) which allows for faster data transfer.

The AR 5731 has a generous paper capacity of up to 2,100 sheets and will also print in A3. It comes with an 8.1 inch touchscreen LCD panel as standard and optional inner finishing features including automatic sorting, stapling and stacking.
