About us

uStepper originated by a coincidence during a training session in Denmark, back in 2015, when the founders Thomas and Mogens, who studied Electronics and IT on their 6th  semester at Aalborg University asked the question :

“Why doesn’t there exist a Arduino Compatible stepper driver that can compensate for lost steps?”

Mogens had previous experience with CNC machines and 3d printers , and therefore had experienced the issue of lost steps by stepper motors.

From this the proces began, from idea to product development to prototype design and after 2 revisions of prototypes, the product  launched on kickstarter in 2015 partially as market research and financing for the first batch of uSteppers which ended up as a huge succes.

Later on more functionality was added to the uStepper, and development of applications began, such as the linear actuator and the robot arm, which has proven the amount of applications that the uStepper is applicable for beyond 3d printing and CNC machines.

In 2018 we launched another Kickstarter campaign, to launch two new products: the uStepper S and the uStepper S-lite, which served to replace the original uStepper Rev B, which again resulted in a succes. After getting hit by the component crisis during 2022 a new improved design named uStepper S32 was launched to succeed the former two boards.

Below you can read a little about who we are.

Made in Denmark


Made in Denmark – what does that actually mean ?

The uStepper board is produced and tested at a local PCB manufacturer here in Denmark. This of course limits our profit compared to getting it produced in China, but we can assure the highest quality product this way!

Besides the uStepper board itself, we our selves produce the plastic parts for mounting brackets, the Robot Arm and the other accessories for the uStepper board. Again we do this to ensure the highest possible quality of our products, making sure you don’t get low quality parts.


Custom products

The uStepper team develops the products from scratch and thus also has the capability to make custom products if desired. Be it a minor change to the existing uStepper products or a totally customised stepper drive – we are ready to design, test and get the hardware produced at our local high quality partner Tridane.

Contact us if you want to know more about how we can help you with your custom product.
