May 01, 2008

LIVERMORE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 1, 2008--Adept Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADEP), the leading provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, today announced it has received multiple orders for Adept Quattro(TM) s650 robots from customers in the Asia-pacific region. The sales mark a key milestone in the company's global packaging initiative. The high speed robots were sold into packaging applications in Japan and Korea and represent the company's first sales into the world's largest and fourth largest (respectively) robotics markets, according to market statistics from the International Federation of Robotics.

"These Adept Quattro robot orders are a significant achievement for Adept in Asia," said John Dulchinos, president of Adept Technology, Inc. "They represent the expansion of our Quattro leading edge technology into the world's largest robotics markets and also attest to the success of our global distribution strategy."

The Adept Quattro robot was selected for these applications for its sanitary design, large work envelope and its ability to delicately handle the confection pieces at very high speeds. The applications will also use Adept's ultra-compact controls and vision guidance technology.

The Adept Quattro robot orders from Japan came through Innovation Matrix, Adept's distributor for the region. The orders from Korea came through Han Shin Power Tech Co., Ltd., Adept's recently added exclusive dealer for Korea and reflect the benefit of Adept's global distribution expansion strategy over the past 2 years.

The Adept Quattro s650 robot, first introduced by Adept in 2007, offers a unique four arm Parallel kinematic offers major advantages over the traditional three arm Delta style kinematic. As is the case with most other robots from Adept, the amplifiers are in the base of the robots. Since the official launch of the Adept Quattro, over 200 systems have been sold.
