Ground has been broken for the new 81,000ft² production facility addition at PI’s Piezo Division location in Lederhose, Germany.
Auburn, Mass. (PRWeb) July 18, 2019 -- Global precision motion and piezo technology solutions leader PI (Physik Instrumente) announced their investment to enlarge their current piezo motion facilities in Lederhose, Germany, increasing their current footprint by half again.
The future building will offer 3 floors for multilayer piezo ceramic assembly production in addition to general office space, a significant increase to its existing 129,000ft² structure. The Piezo Division specializes in high quality standard and customized piezo transducers for applications including medical, aerospace, and robotics. PI’s patented ceramic-insulated multilayer PZT actuators are used on the Mars Rover Curiosity after passing a 100 billion cycle stress test by JPL/NASA. The Piezo Division currently employs about 330 people. The anticipated move-in time is planned for mid-2020.
