Positioning and motion systems with mechanical guides driven by electric motors are the central components in automation processes. This is exactly where the PI miCos has its core expertise. There is already a broad range of precision axes that are suitable for both individual applications and OEM customers. In Eschbach, PI miCos integrates PIMag® linear motors, modern electric motors such as DC(BLDC), AC or stepper motors developed by PI into high-precision, mechanically guided top-class positioning systems.
The common control of various axes is important and necessary in a large number of application scenarios. For this purpose, PI miCos uses suitable controls and configures the appropriate solution. Since 2017, a provider of EtherCAT-based modular industrial controllers, ACS Motion Control, has also been part of the PI Group, therefore providing an ideal link to industrial environments.
