Ready to serve you for many years to come

The ColorWave 3000 series printers are built to last. These highly reliable systems offer excellent uptime and there is no daily maintenance required. As a true workhorse, the ColorWave 3000 series uses durable parts with a long lifetime. The printer itself is built for robust, safe printing for years on end, using proven technologies. The Canon Solutions America service organization offers outstanding support based on decades of experience.


Highly reliable technology

The reliable multi-pass print technology allows details to print accurately. The Canon ColorWave 3800 series offers the ability to print high quality, full-color representations.

Print on a wide range of media, even uncoated, and still get robust prints thanks to CrystalPoint. Prints are instant-dry, robust, and water resistant, without need for lamination.

The Canon ColorWave 3800 series, with its PAINT technology, applies nozzle-failure compensation on the fly, to avoid misprints and maintain high throughput. This helps to ensure consistent print quality between the first and last print throughout the lifetime of your printer. MediaSense technology automatically adjusts the gap between its imaging devices and media, to support high quality prints on a broad range of media.

SMARTshield helps to protect your data during each phase of the print process. It also supports the safeguarding of that data as well as user credentials while files are sent to your printer—from any device. Since a printer is generally not used as a long-term data storage solution, SMARTshield also follows data shredding and proper deleting protocols to help maintain security.

There is also the option to remove the hard disk when the printer is decommissioned. Robust user authentication helps provide document security for users and activity control for budget managers. Hack prevention helps guard against malicious intrusion. All these security measures have been built for the long term: with software support, security updates, and remote service.

Supporting a healthy environment, on all levels

CystalPoint technology supports a healthy working environment. The printing process emits no fine dust, ozone, or odor, and the Toner Pearls are non-toxic. Furthermore, the low sound levels produced by the ColorWave printer help make for a comfortable work environment. The Canon ColorWave 3800 series is also certified with the ENERGY STAR® label for low energy use.

Support for various recycling initiatives are standard: you can print on uncoated or recycled media, for example, and the prints are deinkable for better paper recycling. In our continued efforts to promote a circular economy, at the end of its life, the ColorWave 3000 printers can be remanufactured and reused by Canon.
