Join Physik Instrumente (PI) on stand E15 to explore the world of ultra-precision motion, positioning and control. As the leading manufacturer of nanopositioning systems, PI will be highlighting the capabilities and simplicity of its systems, with demonstrations of piezo tip/tilt mirrors for pinpoint optical laser accuracy and a chance to view a microscopy stage set-up with the PIFOC® – a precision focal positioner with fast autofocus, making it ideal for super resolution microscopy.

PI’s knowledgeable team will be on hand to discuss the latest innovations in the sector, including the company’s vacuum-compatible six-axis hexapods, which feature a parallel kinematic design to offer ultra-stable, nano-resolution positioning in a compact footprint. Visitors will also be able to see a wide range of microscopy positioners for both sample and objective control in AFM, SEM and optical applications. Visit stand E15 to learn more.

PI in brief

Over the last 40 years, Karlsruhe-based Physik Instrumente (PI) has become the leading manufacturer of nanopositioning systems and products based on piezo technology. PI is a private company with more than 900 employees worldwide and a flexible, vertically integrated organization, enabling it to fulfil almost any request in the precision positioning technology field. All PI’s key technologies are developed in-house – including precision mechanics and electronics, position sensors and piezo ceramics or actuators – meaning that every phase, from design to shipment, can be guaranteed. Piezo ceramics and actuators are produced by PI Ceramic, a subsidiary of PI, and the Company has its own sales and service offices in all major markets. PI also maintains testing devices for nanometrology on three continents, and both PI Shanghai and PI USA have additional development and manufacturing resources, allowing rapid local response to specific customer needs.
