Hey Art, PCL5e/6 are standard on the MX-M503N, but optional on the MX-M503U. http://equipmybiz.com/pdfs_fil...63_M453_M503_bro.pdf Also, these were replaced by the MX-M565N series over a year ago. Hope this helps. - jake

If the software really only allows for one sided printing your only option I know of would be to force duplexing at the printer level or do a print to file or print to PDF then print the PDF duplexed and stapled.

Art, I know on many models you can set the PCL defaults (EX: Two Sided & Duplex). These will be ignored when you print form a PCL Driver because the Driver will over ride the defaults. But if they print from a host system the MFD PCL defaults will be used. The other thing you can propose,(Most Host Admins will hate the idea) is set up a Windows Print Driver on a Windows Server. make sure LPD is running and set the Printing Preferences (I also set the Printing Defaults) to DX & Staple...

Re: Discussion about Sharp Corp & Possible Foxconn Take Over

Jason H ·
I don't care how much the copier division makes as far as profitability goes when that division is probably a small percentage of the overall company. My guess is it will go up for sale at some point. My bet would be to Samsung. I also don't see how that division is profitable based on what I see down the street. I kind of believe it about as much as I believed Ricoh in the dealer meeting a few years ago saying "regardless of the rumors your hear, the direct operations are profitable." From...

I think Samsung buys Sharp and I do think Xerox will be sold off to someone but I don't know who that would be. I could see another IKON scenario between Canon and Ricoh trying to buy Xerox to get all their dealers back.

Re: Foxconn, Sharp Reportedly Set To Sign Takeover Deal March 31

Art Post ·
with the original deal for $4.3 billion US dollars. Sharp USA reported that 45 million was to go to the North American market for building the business imaging division. In a document from Sharp the 45 million. Since the buy number is now 1/5th less. I would expect that number to now drop to 36 million or so.

I would be surprised if any such discretionary spending can survive unless Fox Con desides to dump a bunch of money into making this acquisition pay off. Remember that Sharp has already cut to the bone and some things probably cannot be cut any further.

Re: Is The Time Right for Copiers to be Made in The USA Again?

AJ ·
I agree with Jason. It would be nice to have technology manufactured in the US in general. But at the end of the day our labor expenses and manufacturing process automation/quality assurance seem lacking in the globalized landscape. Manufacturing copiers and printers here would also involve moving the manufacturing from existing plants. In a market space where existing manufacturing is below capacity, it would make the case harder to move one. To provide a solution - why don't we reinvest in...
