PI Technology Roadmap

PI Group – Unique in Piezo Technology and Precision Positioning

No other company in the world offers a broader and deeper portfolio of precision motion technologies than the PI Group. Continuous growth through the development of novel products and technologies is one of the main characteristics of the PI Group.

Well known for the high quality of its products, PI (Physik Instrumente) has been one of the leading players in the global market for precision positioning technology for many years. PI has been developing and manufacturing standard and OEM products with piezo or motor drives for 40 years. Continuous development of innovative drive concepts, products, and system solutions and more than 200 technology patents distinguish the company history today. PI develops, manufactures, and qualifies all core technology itself: From piezo components, -actuators, and motors as well as magnetic direct drives through air bearings, magnetic and flexure guides to nanometrological sensors, control technology, and software.

PI is therefore not dependent on components available on the market to offer its customers the most advanced solutions. The high vertical range of manufacturing allows complete control over processes and this allows flexible reaction to market developments and new requirements. By acquiring the majority shares in ACS Motion Control, a worldwide leading developer and manufacturer of modular motion controllers for multi-axis drive systems, PI can also supply customized complete systems for industrial applications that make the highest demand on precision and dynamics. In addition to four locations in Germany, the PI Group is represented internationally by fifteen sales and service subsidiaries.
