Precision Motion Solutions and Piezo Technology

Improving Productivity, Quality and Precision

Hexapods Support Industrial Robots

Hexapods can communicate directly with PLC or CNC controllers via Fieldbus interfaces, users can easily integrate the positioning systems into the automation environment.

High Resolution Microscopy

How nanopositioning mechanisms improve performance of high resolution microscopy in DNA-Origami, DNA-Paint and TIRF techniques.

Drive Technology for the World's Largest Telescope

Realising the technical specifications to the full satisfaction of the customer within a very tight schedule – that is the challenge in this sophisticated and prestigious product and also our strength.

Automation

Positioning and motion solutions for industrial automation that are robust and reliable, with submicrometer accuracy, exact position reproducibility, high dynamics, and throughput.

Applications & Markets

Maximum positioning accuracy is needed in many application areas, like microscopy, biotechnology, medical and automation technology.

Miniature Piezo for Medical

Miniaturised piezo sensor and actuator elements can be found in novel scanning catheter endoscopes or in active implants that regulate internal eye pressure.

Solutions for Motion Centric Industrial Automation

Complete solutions for high-throughput and high-precision multi-axis applications.

Additive Manufacturing with the Help of Piezo Actuators

For generating the droplets, we decided to use a piezo actuator for clocking the nozzle shutter because this provides the necessary high dynamics and accuracy for the material discharge.

Micropositioning

Precise and smooth linear and rotation stages with travel ranges up to 1 meter. Hexapods for loads of up to 1,000 kg  and accurate to the nearest micrometer.

Products

PI, the world's leading provider of nanopositioning products and systems. All products developed, manufactured, and qualified in-house by PI.

Automation Platforms for Laser Material Processing

Automation platforms for high-precision and high-throughput laser processing that address the needs of OEMs, integrators and end users.

Fast Optical Alignment for Silicon Photonics Production

A system that meets the requirements of parallel optical alignment in several degrees of freedom.

Motion Compensation with Hexapods

Precise, repeatable motion with the same dynamics and accuracy on all linear and rotary axes is necessary for motion compensation systems.                                                                                                

Nanopositioning

PI offers high-precision nanopositioning systems with up to six degrees of freedom. Smooth motion, high repeatability, and nanometer resolution.
