A revolutionary system for precision motion

The innovative technology for linear and rotating drives, with piezo-electric, pneumatic and electric actuation. Winners of multiple awards, drives proposed by Phi Drive are based on our existing patents.

An E-Green soul given by a low energy consumption and the absence of lubricants together with high-precision positioning make our products suitable for use in countless fields of application. Our design methods make use of dimensioning techniques which allow to achieve the desired design specifications.

Leading edge tools for design and analysis

Phi Drive uses the most modern tools for mechanical and fluid dynamic design and analysis, such as Finite Element Model Analysis. FEM allows us to study the stationary and dynamic behaviour of any object with a degree of precision that would have been inconceivable up to this decade in common industrial applications. This advanced computer simulation tool, backed by the skills and experience of our engineers and the optimization tools they developed, grants to  cut the duration of a project, multiplying its chances of success.
