PI recognised at Awards

18 April 2018

For the third year running, Physik Instrumente (PI) has achieved success at the Motion Control Industry Awards, winning the Project of the Year category and reaching the final of Manufacturer of the Year section.

PI’s success in the Project of the Year category can be attributed to the company’s partnership approach, working closely with its customers to build long-term, trusted relationships, and helping them to realise the true potential of precision motion and control. This ethos was clearly demonstrated when the University of Oxford Rock Rheology Laboratory required testing apparatus to accurately and precisely measure movements on a micron-scale under high pressures and temperatures.

Simulating the necessary extreme environmental conditions in a laboratory setting is a highly technical challenge, and a custom-built apparatus was the only option. PI was uniquely qualified to handle the task, and the resulting design fulfilled the client’s exceptional requirements.

Dr Lars Hansen, Associate Professor of Rock and Mineral Physics at the laboratory, said: “We were really lucky to find PI; the company was able to do everything within one team, simplifying design, construction, commissioning and troubleshooting. This was our first collaboration, and we intend to work with PI on other projects in the future.”
