Ahead of the curve: Our STILFOLD technology earns pan-European patents
This week, STILRIDE has been granted three EU patents for our STILFOLD steel manufacturing technique. The patents cover the curve-folding itself, its robotics machine, and its proprietary design software.
”It’s great to receive an official confirmation that STILFOLD stands the test, and to know that our company can keep developing even better solutions in the future,” says Jonas Nyvang, co-founder and CEO of STILRIDE.
STILRIDE already has a public Swedish patent for its technology, and four additional patent applications await assessment.
Today, STILRIDE primarily uses STILFOLD to enable greener manufacturing in the automotive industry, the transport and energy sectors, and robotics. Collaborations are already in place with companies like ABB, Polestar, and Alstom.
”I am not surprised that Tue, Jonas, and their team have achieved these successes so fast now that STILFOLD has now been validated by several patent offices. We are proactively working on their patent applications and I don’t think I have ever, in my 20 years in the business, seen an application go through so quickly in Europe. The feedback we see from the patent offices confirms the uniqueness and potential of STILFOLD as a technology, says Christian Arkelius, Partner and European patent attorney at Ström & Gulliksson.
