DESKTOP R2P NANOIMPRINTER

Compact Roller-Based NanoImprinter

Our Desktop R2P NanoImprinter is an ideal tool for prototyping, experimentation and product development. The Desktop R2P NanoImprinter unit is suitable for small-scale nanoimprint lithography work. This device is ideal for rapid prototyping, testing, and characterisation of the property of a structure, which includes work with photo-curable resins and
imprinting materials.

The typical applications range from imprinting, lab-on-chip to diffractive optical elements, and other nanoimprinted structures. The Desktop R2P NanoImprinter works within its protected environment.

A Better Solution to Nanoimprint Lithography

The Desktop R2P NanoImprinter is a small and cost-competitive Roll-to-Plate imprinter, compared to traditional nanoimprinting tools which still dominate the industry today. This smart technology is the first of its kind; A nanoimprint lithography desktop and Roll-to-Plate (R2P) device.

Our Roll-to-Plate NIL device uses a patented nip imprint process as well as an adjustable imprinting force to minimise material shrinkage while reducing air bubble issues.

This nip imprinting process lessens the demand on substrate conformity, providing reduced costs and a higher yield.

Stensborg engineers designed this R2P NanoImprinter with cost-savings in mind, whilst aiming to build a machine with a high-quality output; Quality is not compromised by carrying out up to 60 plates/wafers per hour.​

Enabling an Accelerated Process Cycle

The Desktop R2P NanoImprinter allows fast iterations of the development cycle by testing new designs quickly; therefore, it is the perfect device for prototyping.

This device enables the user to experiment and test many imprinting techniques, light-curable resins, and processing parameters such as pressure, speed, and light intensity. These examinations are useful before scaling to mass production—the ability to make prototypes will save time and resources. The Desktop R2P NanoImprinter also easily permits the manufacturing of imprint templates (molds) from our consumables.

HISTORY OF INNOVATION

Meet the Predecessor – The HoloPrint® uniA6 DT

In 2019, Stensborg presented a state-of-the-art compact unit, the HoloPrint® uniA6 DT. A unit which disrupted the market. The roller-based imprinter was one of its kind with its small proportions, allowing the devices to be carried from one place to another, something unthinkable with other commercially available machines. Its own protective environment also made it feasible to use the R2P device outside of a clean room, removing the burden of sizeable initial investments from academics and starting researchers.

After the HoloPrint® uniA6 DT was met with success, reaching customers in more than fifteen countries, the Stensborg team decided to innovate again, to enhance the roller-based nanoimprinting device even further. In 2022, the company presented the Desktop R2P NanoImprinter, offering customers an improved optical engine, greater ability to explore new UV-curing resins, and overall better control of the imprinting process.
