Product Overview

The MX-M6570 and MX-M7570 are new high-volume monochrome MFPs in Sharp’s lineup. They both replace the older MX-M654N and MX-M754N devices. The MX-M6570 and MX-M7570 supports standard copying, printing, and scanning. Fax is an option.

The MX-M6570 ($22,500) runs at 65 ppm and has a first-copy-time of 3.9 seconds. The MX-M7570 ($27,650) copies and prints at 75 ppm with a first-copy-time of 3.5 seconds. Other than speed, these models share identical specifications.

These models support Sharp’s OSA interface technology, which allows you to extend the functionality of the control panel with third-party applications. They also support the 10.1″ diagonally-measured customizable touchscreen that has the “flick, tap, and slide” functionality, much as you’d see on a tablet. For ease of accessibility for users, there is a titling display panel and a keyboard for data entry needs.

One new feature with these devices is the Sharp Cloud Connect feature, which gives users the ability to access cloud applications, such as Google Drive, SharePoint Online and Microsoft OneDrive, straight from the device’s touchscreen. Users can also directly print Microsoft Office files (Word, PowerPoint and Excel) via the DirectOffice technology.

More details on these machines are found in our Features section below.

This series has advanced multifunctional technology, solid features, and good productivity. We are especially impressed with the wealth of paper input and output options offered.

Features

Paper handling: These models have excellent paper-handling capabilities. Automatic duplexing is standard. Standard paper capacity is 3,200 sheets. There is a two-drawer tandem compartment, one tray holding 1,250 sheets and the other tray holding 850 sheets. There are also two 500-sheet trays that hold up to 12″ x 18″ paper. There is also a 100-sheet bypass tray. For options, you can choose between a 3,500-sheet letter-size tray and a 3,000-sheet ledger-size tray. The maximum paper capacity is 6,700 sheets.

There is a standard single-pass duplexing document feeder– it has a 150-sheet capacity and can scan paper up to 200 ipm in duplex.

Aside from the standard 250-sheet exit tray, the machines offer optional finishers. The first finisher has 65-sheet multiposition stapling, with a 4,000-sheet stacking capacity. You can add a booklet maker with saddlestitching to this unit.

There’s also a finisher with 100-sheet multiposition stapling with a 4,000-sheet stacking capacity.  You can also add a bookmaking unit.. The finishers support several additional options, such as a trimmer unit, a two-tray inserter unit, and a multi-folding unit.

Finally, there is a compact 500-sheet inner finisher.

MFP Features: These machines has a 1.4 GHz processor and standard 5 GB of memory. A standard hard drive holds 500 GB. PCL and PostScript is standard, and XPS is optional. USB, Ethernet and wireless connectivity are standard. Mobile printing and scanning is supported via the Sharpdesk Mobile app.

The models offer standard network scanning, along with optional PC fax and Internet fax. That includes one license for SharpDesk scanning software, which is a utility that allows you to program the models with email addresses, FTP servers, and network PCs as destinations for scanned documents using a networked PC. The scan function includes both LDAP support and network authentication.  File formats include TIFF, PDF, XPS, PDF/A, and encrypted PDF.

Security features include account management, 256-bit encryption, user authentication, SSL encryption, admin audit log, secure fax, and confidential printing. There is also an End of Life feature that overwrites all data at the time the machine is traded in.
