Due to their special properties piezoceramic components and piezoelectric actuators provide important advantages:
- compact dimensions and high flexibility in designs
- high dynamics for fast processes
- no friction, no maintenance, no wear
- cost-efficient, piezoceramic actuators are manufactured in large-scale production
- piezo drives are self-locking: no energy consumption at rest
The PI Group offers:
The use of high-precision positioning systems with nanometer and sub-nanometer accuracy allows resolution of very fine structures in production and inspection. This allows production of more and more powerful integrated electronic components and investigation of new diagnostic and therapeutic methods in life sciences.
ACS Motion Control releases a software suite designed for high-precision laser processing equipment that significantly reduces and in some cases will eliminate the need for user interface development and maintenance.
PI (Physik Instrumente) Acquires Majority Shares in ACS Motion Control: Positioning Systems for High-Performance Industrial Applications
PI (Physik Instrumente), a company with headquarters in Karlsruhe, Germany, has stood for technical excellence and continuous progress in precision positioning for a number of decades.
PI (Physik Instrumente) offers shorter lead times for selected piezo-based positioning systems and nanopositioning controllers. This enables even faster prototype set-up and faster integration of products into the application environment for customers of PI.
With immediate effect, Scott Jordan is head of the newly defined photonics market segment in the globally active PI Group. He is well known in the community for his passion and engagement and has earned himself a very good reputation and his expertise makes him ideally suited for this position.
Stéphane Bussa takes over the responsibility for Sales and Marketing at PI (Physik Instrumente)
