PI Launches New Website on Drive Solutions for Medical Engineering

Piezoelectric components and drives from PI Ceramic and Physik Instrumente (PI) are known for being employed in high-precision positioning systems. In addition, they are suitable for less accurate systems which nevertheless are small, fast, reliable and energy saving, and with that they fulfil the requirements of medical engineering and related life science disciplines.

Today, the most varied applications in medical engineering benefit from piezo-based products. The entire spectrum of the PI product range can be employed, from basic piezo transducers for generating ultrasound to six-axis positioning systems.

On www.pi-medical.ws you can find an overview of applications and suitable products. Animations and related texts describe the way piezo elements work. Currently, the main focus is on microdosing and pipetting, micro pumps and nebulising as well as the use of sensors such as air-bubble sensors. Product overviews, a download area and contact details complete the website.

The website will be expanded gradually to include further fields of application.

Over the last four decades PI, which has its headquarters in Karlsruhe, has become the leading manufacturer of nanopositioning technology. PI is a private company with healthy growth, more than 500 employees worldwide and a flexible, vertically integrated organisation which enables PI to fulfil almost any request in the field of innovative precision positioning technology. All key technologies are developed in-house. This means that every phase from the design right down to the shipment can be controlled: the precision mechanics and the electronics as well as the position sensors and the piezo ceramics or actuators. The latter are produced by the subsidiary company PI Ceramic. PI has its own sales and service offices in all important markets. Moreover, the company maintains testing devices for nanometrology on three continents. PI Shanghai and USA have additional development and manufacturing resources which allow rapid local reaction to custom-engineered specifications.
