IT WAS 50 YEARS AGO TODAY…

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the SF-201, Sharp’s first copier. Joe Tomota, Vice President at Sharp Europe, describes the SF-201 as ‘game-changing’: “Most copiers at the time employed diazo technology, where copies are initially made on special photosensitive papers. Sharp used the Electrofax (EF) method, where paper is given a static electric charge before being exposed to light reflected from the original document. The EF method provided outstanding results without ammonia odour, discoloration or colour mixing and was so successful Sharp produced another 10 series models in the four years following its launch.” The rest, as they say, is history.
