Iconotech was founded in 1992 by the new owners of a duplicator and mimeograph supplies company in Chicago. With previous experience in the early days of large character ink jet printing in Europe while working for a U.S. based packaging company, their vision was to grow a new business in the packaging market for case marking and coding.
The search for a computer driven printing method that could reliably produce readable bar codes and high resolution print on the rough and uneven surface of corrugate led them to the transition they were seeing in duplicating technologies for the office products market. The old style mimeograph process of pushing ink through a stencil onto paper for short run printing used in offices and schools had transformed to highly automated machines that looked like photocopiers but retained the key mimeograph approach of using a stencil.
Recognizing that the basic mimeograph process offered the key advantages of quick changeovers for the short runs inherent to in-house generic case printing programs, disposable stencils, high resolution print from a computer generated stencil, and direct contact printing, Iconotech went to work to design a printer suitable for the industrial environment and formulate ink and stencil material that could stand up to the challenges that corrugated presented.
In 1994, Iconotech sold its first printers, designed for RSC cases, to major tobacco and food producers. Many of those early machines are still operating today, a testament to the quality of the design and utility of the process. Since then, the product line has expanded with an array of feeding mechanisms and automation for die cuts, blanks, other style boxes and multi-wall, kraft gusset and valve bags.
