PI's New $15MM R&D Center - Commitment to Future Precision Engineering Innovations

The doors are open of it’s new 108,000ft² technology facility at worldwide headquarters in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Less than 1 year after breaking ground and laying the ceremonial cornerstone, precision motion and nanopositioning solutions leader PI (Physik Instrumente) announces the opening of its Technology Center, which included an inaugural ceremony attended by hundreds of guests. 

Housing additional 200 workplaces, as well as test and measurement laboratories, clean rooms and environmental chambers, and an auditorium for seminars and training events, the Center brings together PI’s development teams into one shared space to promote interdisciplinary exchange and collaboration in a creative workspace. PI’s precision motion and positioning solutions include multiple levels of integration, from individual nanopositioning components to complete custom engineered motion systems for precision industrial automation applications.

Honoring company founder and President of PI by naming the auditorium after him, Dr. Karl Spanner explained, "We operate in a high-tech sector that has a profound effect on the future. There are no modern high-performance microchips being manufactured that PI is not involved in. Motion, positioning, measuring, and controlling with the highest accuracy will continue to be our objective in the future and the main reason why we made the decision to build the Technology Center”.
