PI Ceramic, one of the world's market leaders for piezoelectric actuators and sensors, reports a favorable sales trend: the record result from the year 2007 was exceeded in 2010 by nearly 30%.

Albrecht Otto, Managing Director, has good reason to be pleased: After having declining sales in the years 2008 and 2009, those markets that are supplied directly by PI Ceramic with piezo components in different refinement steps have shown considerable growth in the last few years. These are mainly applications for fast, precise and compact pump and dosing drives, primarily in medical engineering and automation.

The production and processing capacities are now being expanded, just in time for the 20th anniversary of the company at the end of 2011.

The complete production from the processing of raw materials through to the sintering will be transferred to the new premises so as to create optimum conditions. The goal is a high flexibility for product sampling and small series under production-like conditions. Planned are an additional production line for multilayers and the series production of lead-free ceramics.

PI Ceramic (PIC) is one of the world's leading companies in the field of piezo ceramics. The PICMA® multilayer actuator technology, which received an award for its reliability, is one of many inventions of PIC. Since 1992, PIC has been developing and manufacturing piezo ceramic materials and components for standard and OEM solutions: piezo components, ultrasonic transducers, actuators and system solutions. PI Ceramic, a subsidiary of Physik Instrumente (PI), is located in the city of Lederhose, Thuringia, Germany.
