Our History

Since 1998, Stensborg’s aim has been to develop and produce cutting-edge nanoimprint lithography solutions for customers around the globe. They launched their patented HoloPrint® process in 1999, which has grown to become their signature mechanism since then.

Stensborg aided the first machine integration in Denmark in 2005, and they completed the first Roll-to-Roll (R2R) machine installation in Germany in 2010. This was followed up with the first Roll-to-Plate machine installation in Austria and an R2R installation also in Austria.

As Stensborg grew, they moved into a fully-equipped facility to provide them with more space, enabling them to have production, cleanroom facilities and chemistry development all in-house.

This space enables Stensborg to further develop innovative solutions like their desktop apparatus and roll-to-roll equipment. Most recently, 2019 saw the global launch of their latest product, the HoloPrint® uniA6 DT.

HoloPrint® uniA6 DT

This portable and affordable solution was developed due to growing demand, supplying the perfect easy-to-use product for small-scale nanoimprint lithography work. Ideal for prototyping, testing and characterizing materials and processes.

The HoloPrint® uniA6 DT provides a wide range of applications. These include DOE: Diffractive Optical Elements, HOE: Holographic Optical Elements, lab-on-chip, hydrophobic topologies, etching masks and many other applications.

Consumables

Stensborg offers a large variety of consumables for Nanoimprint lithography. These include their master template UV resins which allow direct fabrication of imprinting templates.

Their consumables are available alongside other production imprinting machines in various light-curing resin varieties and are compatible with their HoloPrint® uniA6 DT machine.

Volume Production

Stensborg also supplies the industrial production of nano and micro-topology surfaces. Their team can provide a variety of optical devices, and they specialize in high-capacity productions that utilize Roll-to-Roll and Roll-to-Plate manufacturing.

Custom-Made Services

Stensborg works with their partners to create a tailored solution that meets specific requirements as no two businesses are the same. They specialize in structured surfaces and topology production, and their optimized light-curing resins replicate topologies from 10 mm to several 100 micrometres.

The Technology

Stensborg integrates a host of innovative technologies to ensure their customers can enjoy the very best service possible. This includes Roll-to-Roll, for volume fabrication on flexible materials like metal, paper, polymers, and recently glass.

 

They also use Roll-to-Plate (R2P) nanoimprint lithography, which comprises a rigid surface plate and a roller mechanism. This is a great choice for experimenting and testing new nanoimprinting topologies before entering mass production (when base materials are rigid, R2P can also be employed for volume production).
