Imina Technologies SA is born from the idea that conventional nanopositioning instruments used by scientists at the forefront of nanotechnology research are lacking of versatility to quickly adapt to ever changing experiments and needs. Over 10 years of research in high precision robotics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL) allowed to demonstrate that a mobile robot equipped with a motion technology based on piezo actuators can satisfy this growing need.
The company was founded in 2009 and started the commercialization a year later of its pioneering miBot™, the world's most compact mobile robot with nanometer resolution of positioning. Since then, Imina Technologies' young and dynamic team puts its expertise in precision engineering and robotics in serving science by developing innovative solutions that make its unique manipulator to be used with an ever wider range of measuring instruments and microscopes.
Partnering with experts in miniaturization and manufacturing techniques, all Imina Technologies' products are manufactured in Switzerland and meet the highest level of quality required by high precision instruments.
