Helping Engineers and Scientists solve Critical Motion, Automation, and Nanopositioning Problems

Broadest & Deepest Portfolio in Precision Motion and Piezo Technologies


Solutions to Improve Productivity, Quality, and Precision

Very precise path length control in optical delay lines are critical to techniques in transient absorption spectroscopy (using pump-probe), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), and many other applications.

System integrators can learn how to strike the right balance of speed, power, and precision - actions critical to advanced laser processing systems.

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

Fast fine steering mirrors keep laser beams stabilized and pointed in the right direction, making sure they reach their targets exactly, over thousands of miles.

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.

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

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

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!
