Compact laser All-in-One

Meet the demands of small, busy workgroups with the exceptional performance of this compact, network-ready multifunctional. The easy to use i-SENSYS MF5980dw offers double-sided printing, scanning, copying and faxing in a single slim device.


The i-SENSYS MF5980dw boosts productivity with its 33 ppm output speed and class-leading First Copy Out Time of less than 8 seconds. There is also minimal waiting time for print outs, thanks to Quick First-Print technologies. The 50-sheet Duplex Automatic Document Feeder for scanning, copying or faxing double-sided documents, together with the optional cassette that expands paper supply capacity up to 800 sheets, also ensure faster and more efficient working.

One touch, ease of use

The intuitive 5-line LCD display presents more information on screen, so users make the most of the available functions. For even greater ease of use, there are one touch solution keys that allow quick scanning direct to your PC; eco-copying for combining several pages into a single print out, saving paper and money; and secure print, which is a secure way to print sensitive documents and reduce waste.

Accelerate workflows

Distribute your documents faster and more efficiently using Canon’s SEND functionality. With this you can scan direct to email, a network folder or a USB memory key. In addition, Compact PDF compression technology creates smaller files – up to 1/10th of the size achievable with standard compression – without compromising quality, making it much easier to send and share documents.

Easy networking – wired and wireless

Save space and cut costs with one high performance network-ready device that’s available to everyone in the workgroup. The i-SENSYS MF5980dw is easy to manage over the network and Wi-Fi compatibility enables you to easily integrate it into your wireless network.

Seamless integration

This network-ready unit offers PCL 5e, PCL 6 and PostScript Level 3 support for easy integration into your existing print environment.

Save energy and cut costs

Reduce your impact on the environment, while cutting costs. Energy Star compliant, the i-SENSYS MF5980dw leads the way with one of the lowest Typical Energy Consumption (TEC) figures – just 1.4 kWh. In sleep mode it only consumes 2.3 Watts for greater energy efficiency. Automatic double-sided printing cuts costs further by reducing paper usage.
