Broadest Portfolio of Precision Motion & Piezo Technology Solutions

Micro to Nano - with Engineers who Match Your Application Needs to the most Appropriate Drive Technology

Solutions to Improve Productivity, Quality, and Precision

Piezoelectric transducers are at the heart of many a medical apparatus that treat respiratory diseases associated with COVID-19.

Advanced additive manufacturing now requires micron and sub-micron scale precision.

Fast algorithms and mechanisms speed up processes in automation, test & assembly of SiP components.

Integrated, flexure-guided, and motion-amplified actuators and nanopositioning stages provide convenience and performance for the OEM designer and scientist.

Piezo ceramics enable precise liquid handling for In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD), allowing for fast, easy, widely accessible test methods which are important during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Rocking Crazy” – fine tuning of image stabilization algorithms with PI’s shaker hexapod.

Advanced error correction methods improve dynamic performance & accuracy of motion systems.

Sub-systems for motion and positioning of imaging optics and flow cells are used in the Sequencing-by-Synthesis method to identify COVID-19.

Piezo flexure platforms provide high dynamics, resolution, and stability.

High speed, long travel, and nanometer precision are no longer mutually exclusive.

Piezo transducers smaller than 1mm can be used in endoscopy or in active implants.

Piezo actuators designed for 100 billion cycles without failures – good enough for NASA!

What's New 

Hexapods provide a better, compact, high dynamics positioning solution to multi-axis applications over a stack of single-axis stages.

Completely frictionless motion, no maintenance, and operational in any orientation make this new large air bearing a nanopositioning solution for optical alignment, metrology, inspection, calibration, and scanning.
