colorWAVE 3600/3800 Series CrystalPoint Technology

Image processing technology for high quality color and black and white printing on plain and recycled paper

CrystalPoint technology has been developed entirely by Canon to deliver high quality color and black-and-white prints on plain and recycled paper. Using patented TonerPearls toner it is ideal for a wide range of printing, scanning, plotting and copying applications including CAD plots, GIS documents and business graphics.

How CrystalPoint technology works

  • TonerPearls toner is solid with no risk of system or air pollution
  • Simple laws of gravity ensure fail-proof transportation of TonerPearls toner inside a system
  • Transparent cartridges allow you to see when replacement is required

Tonergel Jetting

  • Once inside the system, TonerParts toner is converted into a gel
  • Imaging devices move across the media in swaths at high speeds jetting the tonergel onto the media
  • Due to the toner's gel state, droplets stay compact even when jetted onto highly absorbent media, the result is crisp print quality without feathering

Solid Out → Toner Crystalization

  • A unique crystallization agent controls the time that the toner remains in gel form after jetting onto the media
  • Once it bonds to the media, the toner crystallizes resulting in strong adhesion with an even semi-gloss finish. This creates robust, waterfast prints suitable for outdoor or heavy-duty use
