The Ink Machine is the titular device of the 2017 action horror game Bendy and the Ink Machine. It was first operated by, possibly, Joey Drew.
It is assumed that the machine is able to create and make cartoon characters come alive and even restore ink.
Bendy and the Ink Machine
In Chapter One: Moving Pictures, if Henry, the protagonist, gathered all objects needed and switches up the ink pressure, the Ink Machine will be activated. It is possible that the device is responsible for the creating of Ink Bendy, as the latter tried to grab Henry into the room where the machine is.
The prints seen on a desk in Chapter Two: The Old Song shows a second version of the Ink Machine, possibly planned to be built.
