Our mission

Our mission is to develop and produce leading-edge solutions of NIL technology available to the global community. We specialize in industrial applications and we also look for a way to provide NIL technology to the universities. With our long experience and solutions, we always strive to offer the best services and solutions. Our vision is to be the place that offers knowledge to those who want to know more about NIL technology. 


Stensborg began in 1997 as a consultancy company. With our knowledge in the field, we assisted companies to implement NIL technology to maximize their utilization. In the next few years, we established our own cleanroom facilities in order to provide better services. We began to help our clients with making industrial master templates and their further application. These events led us to invent the HoloPrint process, which we later patented as our signature mechanism. Eventually, our company has expanded to a fully-fledged facility including the cleanroom facilities, chemistry development, and production. We also work as a test and trial facility which uses anything from the desktop equipment to a full-size Roll-to-roll apparatus.  

Our Team

Our skilled team excels in the full production cycle of nano and micro surface relief creations. We have our own range of proven machines, prepress materials, and resin chemistry.
