A new form of ink that enables printing to take place on non-porous surfaces has been incorporated into new Wolke thermal inkjet printers.

The solvent-based ink is reported to offer extensive quality even when it comes to printing small characters and will be made available exclusively through Sunala for the UK's pharmaceutical market.

Sunala is able to offer a special traversing unit which, coupled with the ink's integration with Wolke’s top selling m600 advanced thermal inkjet printer, means that the ink can be put to truly effective use. 

The m600 printer features a HP ink cartridge system which contains both the ink and the print head meaning that the key elements of the printing system are replaced at the same time. 

Alan Turner, Sunala's managing director, said: "We are very excited by this latest development in the continuing success of the Wolke m600 thermal inkjet printer.

"Pharmaceutical manufacturers can now enjoy the benefits of mess free high quality codes for their blister packs."

The Wolke m600 can operate up to four print heads, each with a print height of 12.7mm, giving a possible total height of 50.8mm.
