LIVERMORE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 10, 2008--Adept Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADEP), the leading provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, today announced it will present the Adept Quattro s650 robot on its booth (Hall B5, Stand 220) at Intersolar 2008, the world's largest solar trade fair, in Munich, Germany, June 12-14. The robot will also be showcased on the company's booth (#9543) at the fair's North American sister show, Intersolar North America 2008 in San Francisco, CA June, 15-17. The robotic demonstration will show advanced technology for thin cell handling and inspection.
"Intersolar is the perfect venue to demonstrate the unique capabilities of the Quattro s650 robot for solar cellhandling and inspection," said John Dulchinos, president of Adept Technology, Inc. "As the industry shifts to thinner and thinner cells, Quattro robots have proven to be the perfect solution for increasing manufacturing yields and overall factory throughput."
The Adept Quattro robot was recently selected by SLS Solar Line Saxony ("SLS") as part of its standard products for their automation equipment for solar cell production. SLS was established as a joint venture between Roth & Rau AG (Hohenstein-Ernstthal) Germany and USK Karl Utz Sondermaschinen (Limbach Oberfrohna) Germany to accelerate the production of standard technology products for the manufacturer of solar cells. The Adept Quattro s650 robot, first introduced by Adept in 2007, using 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.
Intersolar 2008 will be held at the New Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany, June 12-14. Intersolar North America 2008 will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, June 15-17. Registration information for both shows can be found at http://www.intersolar.de/index.php?id=65&L=1.
