High-Precision Solutions for Reliable Scientific Experiments

Scientific experiments pose their own challenges, and beamline X-ray experiments are even more special in themselves. However, the need for precision equipment is universal. At PI, specialists with many years of engineering experience work together with scientists to develop the best solution: Unique in its features, repeatable in performance. Beamline Instrumentation focuses on the optimum motion and positioning equipment for beam preparation optics, sample manipulation, detector positioning, be it single components or full endstation instrumentation. Beamline Instrumentation is your partner of choice for the design, manufacturing, qualification, and commissioning.
