Stensborg Launches an Enhanced Desktop R2P NanoImprinter Offering Improved Roller-based Imprinting
ROSKILDE, September 19, 2022 - Stensborg A/S, the inventor of the patented Holoprint® process, and the manufacturer of the HoloPrint® uniA6 DT and other roller-based nanoimprint solutions, announced today the launch of the Desktop R2P NanoImprinter. The new version of the roller-based prototyping tool provides customers with an improved optical engine, greater ability to explore new UV-curing resins, and overall better control of the imprinting process. These improvements enable users to have a better experience of fast prototyping and testing for NIL process development. The machine’s uniqueness is further supported by two granted patents for the nip imprinting method and the optical curing engine within the tool.
To date, Stensborg has sold compact Roll-to-Plate (R2P) imprinting machines across three continents, totalling sales across ﬁfteen countries. The clients range from academic institutions and government laboratories to the private sector in a host of diﬀerent industries.
After months of research, development, and testing, Stensborg is introducing the R2P NanoImprinter with:
- Optimised UV light source with better optics;
- Better compensation for diﬀerent substrate thicknesses;
- Improved design on several mechanical parts, including a new substrate plate holder that reduces background light reﬂection;
- Upgraded plate motion control enabling very stable low-speed operations.
Like its predecessor, the Desktop R2P NanoImprinter is ideal for prototyping, small-scale imprinting and fast process development for micro/nanostructure based devices. The compact R2P machine has applications in many diﬀerent ﬁelds, such as Photonics, Biomedical devices, Solar energy, and Augmented reality, to name some.
“Stensborg's dedication is always to innovate, and to bring the best possible solutions to our clients. As the previous model, the HoloPrint® uniA6 DT, has been on the market for three years, we felt the urge to provide our customers with an upgraded version which supplies them with a better imprinting experience, oﬀering them a greater edge over their competitors.”
Christian Bjerrum-Niese, CEO
The enhanced version of the one-of-its-kind compact roller-based imprinting machine pushes, once again, the world of nanoimprint lithography further with its advanced controls, improved accuracy and better and smoother throughput.
