Ink Partners

The Microplotter’s unique ultrasonic liquid dispensing technology lets it print a wide variety of inks, including every ink that a standard inkjet can, plus a wide range of additional ink formulations. Inks with viscosities from 0 centipoise up to 450 centipoise are supported, as are suspensions with particles ranging from nanometers to up to 15 microns in size. Aqueous solutions work well, as do ones with organic solvents that are less volatile than toluene.

Here are some commercially available materials that work very well with SonoPlot’s Microplotter systems:
