PI USA acquires MICOS GmbH Product Distribution for American Market

Auburn, MA and Irvine, CA, June 21, 2012 -- PI announces the next step in the acquisition of miCos GmbH. PI (Physik Instrumente) LP, the US operation of piezo and nanopositioning systems manufacturer Physik Instrumente GmbH, will now handle sales, distribution and service of miCos GmbH products for the US, Mexico and Canada effective June 1, 2012.

The distribution of miCos GmbH products will be integrated in PI’s North American organization. MICOS USA will be renamed to MICRONIX USA and continues to be headed by Manfred Schneider, currently president of MICOS USA, who has successfully grown the business for miCos GmbH in the US over the past 6 years. The renamed company will continue the support of the MICOS USA-developed products, including the PPS, PP and VT product lines.

All other miCos GmbH products will now globally be marketed under the new PI miCos brand name.

The integration of PI and and miCos GmbH along with the acquisition of the distribution rights in the USA concludes the merger of both companies after Physik Instrumente GmbH became the majority owner of miCos GmbH in September 2011.

The acquisition of miCos GmbH allows PI to supplement its extensive nanopositioning and micro-positioning portfolio with the products and know-how of a leader in the field of vacuum positioning technology and system integration. PI's product range of high-precision positioning systems is particularly expanded in the area of stepper motor stages and electro-magnetic linear motors. In addition, high-load rotation stages and long-travel linear stages (up to 1000 mm) are now also available.

The PI USA team is looking forward to working with existing and new PI miCos customers.

Further information regarding the transition such as FAQ’s on open orders, warranty and support will be published on the www.pimicos.com, www.micosusa.com, www .micronixusa .com and www.pi-usa.us websites.

New piezo nanopositioning system: versatile, fast and compact with large clear a …
Large clear aperture, high control dynamics, fast settling times and compact dimensions: PI launches a new product line of linear nanopositioning systems for a broad range of applications. The P-630 stages are perfectly suited, e.g. for use in sensor heads or precision motion of objects in optical and tactile metrology as well as for microstructuring. With travel ranges up to 80 µm and a direct piezo actuator drive, the compact positioning
2 mm Travel Range - 20 Milliseconds Settling Time: New Objective Scanner with Pi …
New microscopy methods, such as two-photon microscopy, make it possible to record 3D stacks with up to 1 mm depth in biological samples. For this they require high-performance drives for positioning the objectives. PI (Physik Instrumente) now developed the new N-725 PIFOC® objective scanner with piezo stepping drives especially for position-ing microscopy objectives. The N-725 provides travel ranges of up to 2 mm along the optical axis. At the same time
New Version of M-663 Micropositioning Stage: Benefits of PILine® Drive Technolo …
Cost-effective with 2 µm step size. PI (Physik Instrumente) completes its product line of high-velocity M-663 micropositioning stages. The new linear stage version M-663.5U is especially suited for positioning tasks in automation where a resolution of 0.6 µm and a step size of 2 µm are sufficient. The integrated PILine® linear motor provides push forces to 5 N and a maximum velocity of up to 250 mm/s over a 18 mm
Small Size and High Resolution: New Miniature Stage is Only 24 mm Wide at a Reso …
Physik Instrumente (PI) has introduced the new LPS-24 series. At only 24 × 33 × 20 mm³, these new miniature positioning stages provide a travel range of 15 mm with nanometer-precision resolution. The LPS-24 stages fulfil important requirements for the positioning of optical or mechanical components or for the adjustment and manipulation of samples in application environments with a confined space. For the LPS-24 series, PI uses NEXACT® piezo stepping drives. These
