Speedy Copying and Quick First Copy Time
The AL-2041 has a quick first copy time of 8.0 seconds to
save valuable time when performing multiple short-run jobs.
And with a continuous copy rate of 20 cpm, you can do
more copy jobs in less time.
One-Touch ID Card Copy
The AL-2041 has a dedicated key for
easy copying of both sides of a card
(ID cards, credit cards, etc.) onto a
single page.
SOPM and Electronic Sorting
Superb Image Quality
The AL-2041’s Scan Once/Print Many (SOPM) function does one scan of
multiple-page documents and stores them in memory for making up to
99 copies of each page. The Electronic Sorting function then
automatically collates multiple sets of copies in page order without
the aid of a sorter.
600-dpi resolution and 256-level greyscale ensure finely detailed
reproduction, while Digital Auto Exposure Control provides
optimum copy contrast. For the best results, users can select Text
mode for text-only originals or Photo mode that gives detailed,
high-quality reproduction of photos and delicate halftone images.
Fast Printing with Sharp Technology
Other Key Features
The AL-2041 is a high-performance printer incorporating
Sharp Printer Language with Compression (SPLC)
technology. SPLC effectively reduces the data size of print
jobs, speeding up the data transfer time and printing process while
improving overall throughput. Also, the RIP Once/Print Many (ROPM)
function saves print data in the AL-2041’s internal memory and
transfers it to output at a quick rate of 20 ppm in 600-dpi resolution.
• Wide zoom range from 25% to 400% with 5 preset ratios
• 250-sheet paper tray + 50-sheet multi-bypass feeder
• Cost-efficient Toner Save mode
• Pre-Heat/Auto Power Shut-Off modes

The AL-2041 can make two-sided copies and
printouts using its built-in duplex module,
effectively reducing paper costs as well as
saving filing space. Duplex copying is even
more productive when the duplex module is
used together with the standard-equipped SPF (single pass feeder),
which efficiently feeds in up to 50 pages of one-sided originals.
