ICON Digital Expands Wide Format
ICON Digital Productions of Richmond Hill, Ontario has recently upgraded its wide-format production with the installation of two new pieces of equipment, an Inca Onset S20 and Durst RHO 500.
The machines, which the company values at $2.3 million, will join other pieces of production equipment, including two Océ Lightjet photo printers and a HP 8300 Turbojet web-sheet printer.
According to the company’s President, Juan Lau, he says he sees the industry shifting away from solvent printing to the more cost-efficient and eco-friendly technologies such as UV. “It’s hard not to notice the number of UV products shown at trade shows these days. Both these printers impressed us with their speed, print quality and reliability over other UV products we have looked at,” he says.
ICON Digital Productions has been operating since 1995 and currently employs 55 people in a 45,000 square foot facility. The company produces outdoor signage and other display graphics as well as point-of-purchase materials.
