Wolke m600® oem

Wolke engineering — built to fit, designed to perform

The gold standard for global track and trace applications

Wolke — the trusted leader in thermal inkjet innovation

Since Wolke launched the first high resolution, low maintenance printing system in 2000, the brand has become the trusted leader in Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) coding technology for high value applications. Now with over 10,000 successful installs worldwide, the Wolke engineers have created a new state of the art – the m600 oem. Intelligent in design and practical in build, the m600 oem delivers breakthrough integration versatility combined with the industry’s most powerful data handling and global track and trace capabilities.

The m600 oem offers complete backwards compatibility with the known and trusted m600 advanced, allowing use of the same remote communication protocols, printheads, layout files, and accessories. And yet, the m600 oem represents an entirely new class of track and trace coding system.

Ultimate flexibility when integration matters

The m600 oem controller is up to 60% smaller than comparable TIJ printers, offering system integrators and serialization OEMs a uniquely small and lightweight solution. The possibility of 18 different mounting orientations and four unique printhead designs helps address the common challenges ofn integrating into sophisticated packaging and serialization machinery. The option to connect up to six printheads, running any four simultaneously, creates new possibilities for switching seamlessly between different print locations on the package without mechanical adjustment.

A 3.5” one-way controller display allows simple scroll to diagnostic information with no possibility of data entry or configuration. All printer operation and settings are managed exclusively via the host packaging line HMI, enabling unrivaled security. In addition, a remote web browser interface provides simple and flexible set up with four levels of user password protections and comprehensive logging, guarding printer access and supporting CFR21 part11 compliance.

Meet present and future serialization requirements

Serialization is Wolke’s legacy. And the m600 oem printer makes clear why.
The Wolke m600 oem establishes the standard for a new generation of track and trace projects, featuring:

  • Powerful new processing hardware and a formidable data buffer for serialized record management
  • Validated Wolke remote commands and data handling protocols
  • Unicode TrueType® fonts for global projects
  • Innovative asynchronous communications practices

Active User Datagram Protocol (UDP) alerts provide new options for proactive notification to a host system for defined events, such as when a configurable safety buffer threshold has been reached. In addition, one-to-one confirmation of printed records informs the host system exactly which codes have been processed, eliminating the risk of lost or wasted codes, even through power outages.

Proven technology backed by a 5-year warranty*

New ink capabilities

The specialized portfolio of Wolke TIJ inks has been optimized for critical applications. The inks deliver outstanding print contrast and light-fastness, in combination with long de-cap times.

Wolke Premium Black
Premium Black is a fast-drying and highly reliable ink offering unrivaled high contrast prints. The ink was specifically developed by Videojet for optimum performance in Wolke TIJ systems where optical density and ultra dark codes are required for reliable scanning of bar codes or text. High contrast codes printed with Premium Black ink exhibit excellent light-fastness to stage WS 6 *.

Wolke Universal Black
Universal Black is a proven standard ink for Wolke TIJ, with installs throughout the pharmaceutical, tobacco and food industries. It’s combination of long de-cap times and short drying times is useful for printing on uncoated and painted cardboard and other paper substrates.

Wolke Water-Resistant Black
Water-Resistant Black is a very good solution for moist and /or cold product applications.

The specialized formulation minimizes bleeding or smearing of ink when the packaging is exposed to moisture or condensation after printing. This solution is particularly useful for pharmaceutical cold chain applications.

Wolke Black Solvent
Black Solvent unlocks extraordinary new applications for TIJ marking on many non-porous materials such as glossy cartons, blister foils, coated labels or soft plastics.

While not equivalent to MEK in adhesion, Black Solvent offers all-new applications for Wolke TIJ on pharmaceutical materials beyond paperboard

*WS 6 = very good according to blue wool scale
Standard paper APCO II / II in accordance with DIN
ISO 12040th.
