PI Opens New Technology Center

Facebook X LinkedIn Email
Less than one year after breaking ground and laying the ceremonial cornerstone, motion and nanopositioning solutions provider Physik Instrumente LP has opened its Technology Center with an inaugural ceremony.

PI's new R&D CenterHousing an additional 200 workplaces with test and measurement laboratories, cleanrooms, 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 work space.

"We operate in a high-tech sector that has a profound effect on the future,” said Karl Spanner, founder and president of PI. "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 [is] the main reason why we made the decision to build the Technology Center.”

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.

Glossary
positioning
Positioning generally refers to the determination or identification of the location or placement of an object, person, or entity in a specific space or relative to a reference point. The term is used in various contexts, and the methods for positioning can vary depending on the application. Key aspects of positioning include: Spatial coordinates: Positioning often involves expressing the location of an object in terms of spatial coordinates. These coordinates may include dimensions such as...
nano
An SI prefix meaning one billionth (10-9). Nano can also be used to indicate the study of atoms, molecules and other structures and particles on the nanometer scale. Nano-optics (also referred to as nanophotonics), for example, is the study of how light and light-matter interactions behave on the nanometer scale. See nanophotonics.
