Polytec PI's NanoPositioning
products have won many international industry awards for innovative design.
Examples are the Hexapod 6 Degree-of-Freedom Micropositioning and Alignment
System, the ultra-high resolution Piezoelectric Scanning Stages and Active
Optics (Beam Steering Systems). The PI line of piezoelectric
actuators and nanopositioning stages are among the most sophisticated nanopositioning
systems in the world, allowing extremely precise motion in the shortest

Million-$ NanoMetrology Lab
PI's NanoPositioning products
are world-known for their precision. To continuously improve our
products and to verify the performance, we have designed a six-fold-isolated
room-in-room metrology lab, on a separated foundation in the basement of
measurements not only require highest precision measuring equipment (we
use world-class laser interferometers and capacitive sensors), but also
an environment with extremely high temperature stability and total absence
of vibration (3rd floor office rooms do not qualify) . The acoustic
sound waves of a conversation alone can excite vibration in the range of
several 10 nanometers. That's why the door to our metrology lab resembles
that of a safe.
Ceramic Production Capabilities for Highest Performance
Solid State PZT Actuator
and Sensor Applications.
PI Ceramic, a member of the
Polytec PI family of companies, currently employs more than 70 people
dedicated to producing world-class PZT ceramic materials for actuators
and sensors. Production equipment includes tape casting, sputtering,
automated metallization, grinding and cutting machines.
PI Ceramic offers the only
multilayer PZT actuators in the world.

Based Vibration / Speed / Length Measurement
Polytec's laser based Vibration,
Speed and Length measurement products and services are unmatched in terms
of precision, flexibility and variety. They cover applications from automotive,
aerospace, data storage, medical, MEMS to steel technology. Polytec's Laser
Vibrometers are the most advanced and widely used non-contact vibration
measurement systems in the world. Systems are available from single point
to scanning. Polytec Vibrometers have won many technology awards, the last
one at the "2002 Photonics West Show in Anaheim, CA" for the MEMS Vibrometer.
