UICO was founded in 2007 with a vision of expanding the ubiquitous smartphone interface to markets with harsh environments. To realize this vision, we solved the biggest problems with capacitive touch - water, sweat, extreme temperatures, use with thick gloves, and thick glass durability. UICO is a privately owned, venture-backed business with its headquarters located in Elmhurst, IL. UICO has manufacturing partners located in China and in Taiwan.
duraTOUCH® and duraTOUCHMT® share UICO’s patented projective capacitive touch technology designed to overcome the challenges of harsh environments. We provide complete standard or custom solutions to meet our customer’s specific requirements, including touchscreen, cover lens, LCD, and full bonding services. We offer touchscreens in a range of sizes from 1” up to 24” with larger sizes on our technology roadmap in the near future.
What makes UICO touchscreens different is in our algorithms, which are specifically developed to provide the highest performance with thick gloves and water, including immunity to false touch from water. Our touch experts provide custom solutions by programming the touch controller to meet your specific performance needs. Water and Glove usage are typical problems for other touch providers in the industrial space since the applications are often in challenging wet or cold environments.
UICO has been providing projective capacitive touch for demanding markets in harsh environments for over a decade. We currently have hundreds of thousands of our touchscreens being utilized in an array of markets and use cases including, autonomous vehicles, medical, outdoor point of sale and kiosk, gas dispensing, robotics, agriculture, military/defense and motorcycle/RTV/ATVs.
