Do you have a spectrophotometer? like an i1pro?

There's no other way to get your 3 printers to match each other other than profiling all 3. You can use onyx media manager and create a profile in there.

New profiling is not necessary if using:
- same or similar media (similar white point + optical brighteners)
- identical inks (this is important - same inks on all machines !)
Instead of profiling (which is usually much harder task) do only re-linearization.
Of course, with same channel densities and same N-factor.

If you have significantly different media (very different white point), then you will never get same results - saturated colors+shadows will be more-less OK, but pastels and greys will never be same.
Cool media make cool greys, neutral media tend do produce neutral or green-yellowish greys , warm media produce redish greys ...
This is unavoidable and can only be " somehow cheated" by absolute colorimetric rendering.
