New System Integrates High Resolution Inspection With Quattro s650 Robot, Streamlining Solar Cell Production

LIVERMORE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 15, 2008--Adept Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADEP), the leading provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, today announced it will preview its new solar cell handling and inspection technology at the Intersolar North America Show in San Francisco, California July 15-17, 2008. The new system integrates high resolution inspection with high speed solar cell handling and features the Adept Quattro(TM) s650 robot along with a Bernoulli gripper. The Quattro robot is the world's fastest robot with over 200 systems sold worldwide. The Bernoulli gripper combined with the Quattro robot creates an effective method for manipulating solar cells without the potential for product damage.

"Automating solar cell inspection has proven to be an effective way to increase yields and reduce in-process scrap," said John Dulchinos, president and chief operating officer for Adept Technology, Inc. "Integrating inspection with automated handling is the next step in improving production efficiencies and continuing the trend towards lower cost solar cells."

The company will be demonstrating the new system on its booth #9542 at the Intersolar North America Show in the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California July 15-17, 2008. The system cell preview at the show will feature the Adept Quattro s650 robot handling high speed solar cell transfers from a moving conveyor belt to a pallet. The demonstration also utilizes a high resolution, high-speed image capture system provided by LMI Technologies, a leader in advanced vision sensors for industrial applications. The Adept Quattro s650 robot is ideal for handling, assembly, sorting, loading, unloading, testing, inspection, tabbing, stringing, scribing and dispensing applications.
