MX-6500N / 7500N
Precise. Productive. Professional.
A True Color-on-Demand Powerhouse


Sharp’s flagship MX-6500N/7500N is a color print-on-demand powerhouse built for full-scale light production of professional documents. A variety of automatic adjustment functions enable this MFP to maintain exceptional print quality on a par with commercial printing. A powerful external Fiery® Color Print Server with Command WorkStation® software is available for color-critical environments that require precise management of print jobs. The software can be operated intuitively through the MFP’s user-friendly 15.4-inch color LCD touchscreen panel—a unique Sharp specialty.

The ultra-versatile MX-6500N/7500N not only offers a full suite of paper-feed and finishing options, it also handles a variety of paper types and paper thicknesses up to 300 g/m2. With selected options, total paper capacity can be boosted all the way to 13,500 sheets. On top of that, users can take advantage of flexible document system configurations that cater precisely to their varying needs. Powerful, fast, and highly configurable, this is one MFP that delivers quality on demand.


A Heavy-Duty Productivity Booster
  • Built for high volume, the MX-6500N/7500N boasts an impressive speed of 75/65 cpm/ppm for A4 paper and 42/38 cpm/ppm for A3 paper
  • 150-sheet DSPF (duplex single pass feeder) quickly scans documents at 75 opm*1 (1-sided originals) or 150 opm*1 (2-sided)
  • Standard 3,100-sheet paper capacity can be expanded up to 13,500 sheets to meet the needs of high-volume jobs
  • Paper Setting Registration function allows instant recall of up to 1,000 pre-registered media profiles
  • Empty toner cartridges can be replaced and paper trays replenished without interrupting a copy/print job
  • Accommodates a wide variety of paper types, sizes (including custom sizes up to 330 x 488 mm / 13″ x 19.2″), and weights (up to 300 g/m2) for an extensive range of possible printing applications
  • Professional-quality in-line finishing options include full-bleed booklet making (with edge-to-edge printing) and banner printing
Reliability Builders
  • Triple Air-Feed System on the optional Large Capacity Trays (MX-LC13) minimises paper jams and enables smooth paper handling
  • Multi-Feed Detection System detects and prevents misfeeds from the paper feed section
  • Precise front-to-back registration ensures exact alignment of printed images
  • Optional Curl Correction Unit prevents paper from warping before it goes to the finisher for reliable output of two-sided copies and prints
  • Full front access to all key machine components ensures easy maintenance and reduces downtime
Superb, Stable Image Quality
  • Wide color gamut is almost identical to that of commercial offset printers
  • 3rd-generation Mycrostoner-HG (High Grade) reduces graininess and reproduces fine lines and halftone colors
  • Along with conventional line screening, the MX-6500N/7500N employs dot screening to enable high-quality color and greyscale printing on a par with offset printers
  • 1,200 x 1,200 dpi 8-bit print resolution provides crisp, clean reproduction of fine-grained photos, fine lines, and small text
  • Standard PCL 6 and true Adobe® PostScript® 3
  • Developer Refresh System and auto process control ensure consistently high image quality over a long period of time
  • For precise CMYK color registration, multiple functions automatically make the right adjustments at the right time—without sacrificing print speed
Fiery® Print Server for Outstanding Color Output
  • MX-PE10 Fiery external print server turns the MX-6500N/7500N into a powerful integrated solution for managing busy in-plant and on-demand printing environments
  • Fiery® Command WorkStation® fully integrated at the MFP’s 15.4-inch touchscreen brings unmatched control and ease of use for easy management of print jobs
  • Delivers high-impact documents with vibrant color fidelity for consistent results page after page
Exceptional Ease of Use
  • For easy viewing, the control panel tilts from front to back and from side to side, and its supporting arm can be rotated freely from side to side
  • Job Management screen allows users to oversee and control print jobs
Multi-Layered Security
  • Standard-equipped security functions include encryption/erasing of internally stored job data and protection of administrator/file/folder passwords*2
  • Function-specific user authentication
  • Document Control function*3 prevents unauthorized use of confidential documents
  • Hidden-Pattern Print function prevents unauthorized copying
  • Retained data can be initialized when it’s time to replace the MFP
Eco-Friendly Advances
  • Dramatically reduced power consumption means that TEC values*4 are significantly lower than the maximum allowable values determined by ENERGY STAR®
  • Based on usage patterns established over a four-week period, enhanced Auto Power Shut-Off mode automatically determines the optimal length of time to let elapse before shutting the power off
  • Eco Scan function saves energy by turning off power to the fusing system during jobs that don’t require any printing.
  • Power ON/OFF Schedule function automatically turns the MFP on or off according to time schedules set by the administrator
  • Energy-efficient LED lamps employed in the scan unit (instead of conventional xenon lamps) provide further energy savings
