Sharp A3 printer paper tray options

Sharp A3 business copiers unless specified will need a base unit for the copier to stand on.  The copier has 1 tray built in as standard (plus a 100 sheet bypass tray) but in order to increase the paper capacity you will need additional tray options.

We offer the full range of base units.  However, the most common option is the MX-DE25N base unit that effectively gives the users 2 trays and a bypass tray.  For most small offices this is sufficient, normally being configured as 1 A4 tray and 1 A3 tray with the bypass used for labels and letterheads occasionally.

In busier offices we sell more MX-DE27N base units than anything else. This gives users 4 trays in total plus the bypass tray.  We normally find 2 trays set for A4 (giving 1000 A4 plain paper capacity), 1 tray for letterhead and 1 tray for A3.  We rarely sell the MX-DE26N.

In high volume printing areas we do sell the MX-DE28N which gives a lot of A4 paper capacity (1500 sheets) plus another 2 trays (generally for A3 and A4 Letterhead).  This paper drawer option effectively replaces the high capacity tray MX-LC17N which again is rarely sold but is available for high volume applications.

All the standard drawers will take up to 500 sheets of A3 paper.  Each device | drawer is fully customisable for paper type | paper size

Output | Stapling Options for A3 devices

Sharp A3 business copiers come configured with a TU-16 simple output tray as standard.  For the majority of offices this normally will be sufficient.

However, if stapling is required, the inner stapler unit – the MK-FN27 is by far the most common finisher that we supply, given it’s cost effectiveness. This offers cross corner stapling in both portrait and landscape orientation, as well as the option to put 2 staples down the left hand side (binding edge) of a document. A nice little touch is the offline stapler on the unit that allows you to re staple the originals.

Of the stand alone finishers on offer, the most commonly sold is the FN-29 booklet making stapler unit.  This is great for making short runs of A5 or A4 stapled and folded pamphlets – a real time saver for newsletter production.

The other finishers FN-28, FN-30 and FN-31 are rarely sold, but are great in higher volume output situations.
