Inkless printing company ZINK Imaging has completed its purchase of Konica Minolta's manufacturing facility in North Carolina, enabling ZINK to step-up production of paper for its Zero-Ink print process. ZINK Paper is special photo paper comprised of dye crystals. Before the printing process begins, the dye crystals become clear, making the ZINK paper look like a regular piece of white photo paper, but when run through a ZINK-enabled printer, heat triggers the dye crystals to add color. As part of the acquisition, originally announced back in June, ZINK Imaging plans to hire the remaining 60 employees and the senior management team currently employed by the Konica Minolta plant.
