In a world where technology evolves rapidly, standing still is not an option for those who aspire to lead. At Stensborg, we understand that drive for innovation and invite you to explore our work as a preeminent architect behind various custom-made solutions – projects that have ultimately pushed boundaries and driven progress.

Case Studies of Innovation: Custom-Made Solutions in Action

1. The Colorfoil Project: A Hue of Green Innovation

One of our most illustrious endeavours, the Colorfoil project, exemplifies how we leverage our technological strengths to serve the burgeoning solar sector. This initiative within the realm of Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) allows for dual functionality of energy production and architectural aesthetics, thereby revolutionising the interface between renewable energy generation and urban architecture.

The Colorfoil project seeks to manifest an important contribution towards a sustainable future by offering a solution that supports energy self-sufficiency for buildings through localised energy production and provides an aesthetically pleasing integration thanks to coloured photovoltaic panels. Our role within this partnership—accompanied by esteemed institutes like SDU and DTU—is of vital importance, employing our nanoimprint lithography technology to support R&D efforts and pave the path towards efficiency.

2. The NEAT Project: Pioneering Medical Breakthroughs

Likewise, the NEAT Project stands as a foundation for our custom-made contributions to the medical sector. This groundbreaking research utilises cutting-edge technologies to develop novel tools for in-vitro disease modeling and drug discovery, addressing some of the key limitations currently faced by the industry. Moreover, our introduction of nanoimprinted shaped support structures and surface modifications are core elements that will allow for the development of tissue-like myocardial preparations devoid of movement artefacts.

Custom-Made Equipment: Artisanal Design Meets Technological Ingenuity

  • Profactor – Communication Applications

Regarding custom-made equipment, Stensborg has been instrumental in providing bespoke solutions catering to niche demands across various industries. Our collaboration with Profactor unified into a bespoke Roll-to-Plate machine capable of diverse applications, birthed from a confluence of trust and expertise. The e-PAPER project exemplifies this venture, envisaging E-Ink manipulated by nanostructures on monumental scales – akin to a Kindle displayed on a highway billboard.

In short, the harmony between us at Stensborg and Profactor extends to nanotechnological landscapes, where crafted crystals mimic the opulence of diamonds. Besides Profactor, this is a venture alongside giants like Sony DADC and Swarovski, showcasing the reach of these custom-made solutions.

“As an industry-orientated research company, we highly appreciate the versatility of the industrial Stensborg Roll-to-Plate NIL machine, which we have in-house. The dedication to good solutions can be observed in the technical details of the tool. Stensborg’s reliability as a long-standing partner is convincing.”
