Precision industrial motion systems are used in test, assembly or laser micro-machining of high precision and high value components and in electronics, optics, and photonics manufacturing, to name a few.

White Papers

HOW 6-DOF ALIGNMENT SYSTEMS CONTRIBUTE TO THE SUCCESS OF THE EVENT HORIZON TELESCOPE

PI’s 6-DOF alignment technology, integrated in many telescopes, is part of this success story. PI precision motion components (piezo mechanisms) were also involved, when the first merger of black holes was detected by the LIGO collaboration in February 2016, proving the existence of gravitational waves.

CONTROLLING HEXAPOD 6-DOF ALIGNMENT ROBOTS VIA ETHERCAT

The latest generation of PI hexapod controllers with integrated EtherCAT interface now make it very easy for users to integrate hexapods into automation systems without the need for to perform challenging kinematic transformations.
