Intelligent Piezo Systems of the Near Future
Physik Instrumente (PI) is a pioneer in piezo technology who manufacture their own ceramics and are conducting research to a large extent. Sensor and control technology will become more important in the next few years. Precision motion control at that level mainly revolves around a phenomenon called the piezo effect, first described by the Curie Brothers in 1880. The engineers at Physik Instrumente (PI) of Karlsruhe, Germany have specialized in exploiting this effect in multiple ways.
