Zink Imaging is steadily expanding its reach for a new inkless printing technology as it announces Dell will launch an ink-free mobile printer.
Bedford, Mass-based Zink Imaging figured out how to print without inkjet cartridges by embedding dried ink in paper. It heats the ink in precise locations, melting the ink in the right spots, to form an image. This new technology works especially well in creating mobile printers for devices like iPhones, where a normal printer is just too bulky.
Zink focuses on manufacturing the paper and licensing the system to its customers. Dell will use Zinkís technology in the Dell Wasabi PZ310 Ink-free Mobile printer. It is available now on Dellís web site in pink, blue and black. The device weighs just seven ounces and can fit in a pocket.Wendy Caswell, chief executive of Zink, said that the Dell deal shows the company is executing its strategy of getting multiple devices with multiple brands.This is the fourth product based on Zinkís technology to hit the market. While printer makers such as HP make a ton of money selling ink, Zink hopes to make money with its paper, which is an advanced composite material embedded with yellow, magenta, and cyan dye crystals.The Wasabi can print two-inch by three-inch pictures that can be peeled off and used as a sticker. It can work with a wide range of devices, including digital cameras, camera phones, netbooks, and laptop computers. Itís essentially just like the old instant film cameras from Polaroid, where Zinkís founders worked. Zink was founded in 2005. It invented the system and it makes the paper. Alps Electronics makes the print engine while Foxconn is manufacturing the printers for Dell. More At; http://venturebeat.com/
