Today's businesses need a copier/printer that offers speedy output

for both colour and B/W documents. Network scanning, which lets
you seamlessly integrate paper-based documents and digital files,

First Copy Time
The AR-C260M prints out the first copies in just 8.0 seconds in
fullcolour mode — one of the fastest speeds in its class — and
7.0 seconds in black and white mode, providing the high copying
efficiency your business needs for multiple short-run jobs.
Colour and B/W Output
Tandem printing helps the AR-C260M deliver a fast output of 26
cpm/ppm in full colour and 32 cpm/ppm in B/W. But speed is just
one of the benefits of tandem printing; it also minimises misfeeds
to save you paper and toner costs.
Electronic Sorting Function
The AR-C260M saves each page of a document into internal memory
and then automatically outputs collated sets of copies or printouts
in the proper page order. Each set is offset stacked for easier
separation. Up to 999 copies can be made directly from memory.
This highly productive process is indispensable for high-volume
Note: When copying, only B/W documents can be electronically
and Easy Auto Colour Mode
Sharp’s unique Auto Colour Mode lets you make excellent colour
copies easily. Working together with Intelligent Auto- Segmentation
Technology that distinguishes between text and photos, Auto Colour
Mode analyses the content of an original document and automatically
recognises the type of original. It then selects the optimum copy
mode to produce copies that are faithful to the original. When
copying a document that has text over a pale coloured background,
this function can be set to automatically remove background colour,
thus producing copies that are clearer and easier to read. These
features make it easy — even for first-time users — to make high-quality
colour copies while minimising wasted paper and toner.
dpi Printing with 256 Gradations
The AR-C260M scans and outputs documents at 600 dpi. This high
scan/print resolution ensures that all details of the original
document, including fine text, charts and even photographs, come
out clear and legible. It also provides 256 gradations for each
CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) colour, enabling excellent
Image Processing LED
The AR-C260M employs a write head with Sharp’s original 4-bit
image processing LED. This system is capable of producing 16 colour
gradation patterns on a single pixel, and working together with
a dither matrix process, can achieve superb colour fidelity equivalent
to 256 gradations per CMYK colour. This allows you to create beautiful
printouts and copies with impressive colour detail.
Sharp’s newly developed oil-less toner produces vivid, natural-looking
colour documents without leaving a glossy coating on the paper’s
surface. You can easily write messages or paste sticky notes on
copies and printouts even if they contain many colour photos.
The AR-C260M can make two-sided copies and printouts when equipped
with the optional duplex module and duplex bypass/inverter unit,
effectively reducing paper costs as well as saving filing space.
Auto duplexing is available for paper weights up to 200 g/m2.
This allows you, for example, to create impressive company brochures
and business proposals by using thick paper for the cover.
