Dr. Karl Spanner (left) managing director of PI (Physik Instrumente) with and Lucius Amelung, managing director of PI-miCos (PresseBox) (Karlsruhe, ) Today we are pleased to announce that PI has recently become the majority owner of miCos GmbH in Eschbach, Germany. This allows PI to supplement its extensive nanopositioning and micropositioning portfolio with the products and know-how of a leader in the field of vacuum precision positioning applications and system integration.

PI's product range of fast, high-precision positioning system solutions, is particularly expanded in the area of stepper motors and electro-magnetic linear motors. In addition, high-load rotation stages and long-travel linear stages (up to 1000 mm) are now available.

In the future, miCos GmbH will go by the name of PI-miCos as a subsidiary of PI GmbH & Co. KG. Lucius Amelung will remain managing director.

Advantages for Customers Around the World

The merger offers a number of advantages to customers of both companies. Similar corporate philosophies come together: customer proximity and customer orientation have always played a very important role for both companies. Now, the product range and development expertise are expanded, and the density of the sales & service network is further increased.

In addition, we expect even greater manufacturing flexibility in the future, since miCos GmbH has access to extensive precision machining equipment and has acquired substantial experience with precision manufacturing technologies.

PI and miCos - two economically strong and firsthand owner-managed companies with similar corporate philosophies have commenced a partnership that will lead to new technological milestones in precision motion control products.

You can look forward to new technological possibilities!
