Our story & values

Our Story

In 2015, Philips Research and Philips IP&S decided to build a business case around the SCIL technology. SCIL technology, identified as a potential business, was transferred to IP&S to develop the technology from lab to industry. Then SCIL Nanoimprint solutions was born.

The first step was to design and build a fully automatic machine for imprinting nanopatterns on substrates. It was then, in 2017, that we installed the first AutoSCIL in our facility. Shortly after this milestone, in 2018, we delivered a new AutoSCIL  to one of our customers.

Since then, VDL has been in charge of manufacturing as our OEM supplier and the SCIL team grew into a multi-disciplinary team.

In 2023, SCIL Nanoimprint solutions received funding from imec.xpand, Invest-NL Deep Tech Fonds, RSBG Ventures, and Brabantse Ontwikkelings Maatschappij (BOM), spinning out from Philips and starting its path. 

Our values
