NOVEMBER 20, 2007--Adept Technology (Livermore, CA, USA), a provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, has received a $5M order for Adept Quattro robots from a major European machine builder. Under 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 1.3-m 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 utilizes 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.
