Mars Rover Science Laboratory with Piezo Actuators and Motorized Positioners from PI and PI miCos

Auburn, MA - Long before Curiosity started its long journey to Mars, when NASA decided to have positioning stages from miCos GmbH and piezoelectric actuators from PI (Physik Instrumente) LP work together millions of miles away on the Red Planet, both companies were not aware that a down-to-earth collaboration lay in their near future. Endless tests (in the case of the piezo actuators 100 Billion...
