Adept receives $5 million order for robots

Adept Technology has received an order for more than 100 robots for a handling application. The robots are fabricated with carbon fiber.

Adept Technology Inc. (Livermore, Calif.), a provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, says it has received a $5 million order for Adept Quattro robots from a major European machine builder. Under the terms of the order, more than 100 Adept Quattro s650 robots will be deployed globally over a 12-month period in a proprietary high-speed, vision-guided handling application.

The Adept Quattro was selected in part for its 1.3m work envelope, high-speed vision-guided performance, and conveyor tracking intelligence - enabling higher yields and expanded capacity from minimal floor space.

The Adept Quattro s650 robot uses a patented four-link parallel drive and carbon fiber construction to provide packaging cycle times that are up to twice as fast as conventional packaging robots. It is also the world’s first packaging robot to integrate the controls inside the robot, virtually eliminating external controls cabinets saving valuable factory floor space and simplifying installation.

“This order for over 100 Quattro robots from a leading European manufacturer is a very significant milestone for Adept,” said John Dulchinos, president & COO of Adept Technology, Inc. “It validates the Quattro robot’s capabilities and market acceptance, and positions Adept as a leader in high-speed packaging and handling applications.”
