PI is a worldwide leading supplier of solutions in the fields of motion and positioning. PI does not only develop and produce a broad range of positioning stages and actuators for linear, rotary and vertical motion or combinations of different axes. PI also adapts those solutions to customer-specific applications or supplies finished subsystems for motion and positioning.
Customer- and application-specific product developments form the basis for success at PI. To this purpose, requirements have to be understood and a technological solution has to be found. As the PI Group manufactures all key technologies in-house, both technology and production can be adapted perfectly to fulfill the requirements.
Applications & Markets
PI positioning systems are employed where technology is pushed forward in industry and research. This is done, for example, in semiconductor manufacturing, in medical engineering, in biotechnology, in plant engineering, in surface metrology, or in astronomy.
