PI - Broadest & Deepest Portfolio in Precision Motion Technologies:

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

Solutions to Improve Productivity, Quality, and Precision

Hexapods solve demanding alignment applications including photonics, aerospace, and automotive production.

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

Advanced motion controllers and motion stages can boost throughput in laser machining and processing.

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

Sophisticated optimization algorithms align multiple photonic elements simultaneously.

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

Nanopositioning mechanisms improve imaging performance of Super Resolution Microscopes.

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

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

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

2,000 actuators align the largest optical telescope in the world with nanometer accuracy.

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


What's New 

Ground has been broken for increasing the multilayer piezo actuator / transducer production facility by 50%, for a total of 210,000ft². The anticipated move-in time is mid-2020.

Compact rotary stages with integrated optical encoder provide fast, precise rotation. Peak torque of 1.2Nm. Maximum angular velocity of 540°/sec (90 RPM).

Low profile stage with crossed roller guides, hall effect limit, reference point switches, and manually controlled stepper motors for sub-micron repeatability.
