Printer solid ink is used instead of liquid ink in special printers which melt wax based ink and spray it on to the paper. The technology was first developed by Tektronix in the 1980’s . Xerox bought out the company in early 2000 and launched its own range of solid ink printers. The latest models today are the Xerox Phaser 8500, Xerox Phaser 8550, and the Xerox Phaser 8860.
