PI Extends Factory Space

Sep 2013
Precision positioning systems provider PI (Physik Instrumente) has added a new building to its factory in Karlsruhe, Germany, providing more production floors, metrology labs and R&D office space. The high-load hexapod production and test facility adds about 4500 sq ft of space dedicated to the manufacture and test of heavy-duty 6-axis motion systems capable of moving loads of up to five tons with submicron precision. The accuracy of the positioners is verified using metrology rooms filled with interferometers and other test equipment, the company said. PI’s hexapod systems are used for optics alignment, medical tumor treatment, high-energy physics, and aerospace and semiconductor manufacturing.

The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
