Adept Quattro(TM) s650HS Robot Provides Significant Energy Savings and Sustainable Manufacturing Practices for Critical Production Processes

PLEASANTON, CA - Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, today announced it has further demonstrated its commitment to green and sustainable manufacturing through developing energy conscious solutions such as the Adept Quattro robot for production systems ranging from safely processing food to reducing the costs associated with manufacturing solar cells. Energy consumption has consistently ranked as a top consideration when companies select and implement capital equipment. Recent benchmark tests validate that the Adept Quattro, which was originally designed with energy conservation in mind, consumes up to 35% less power over delta or SCARA robots.

"Adept invests in technologies that provide advanced production solutions exceeding industry throughput and flexibility requirements. Our focus is to be an industry leader in addressing larger challenges such as food safety and green energy by providing responsible solutions," said Rush LaSelle, director of global sales and marketing for Adept Technology, Inc. "The Quattro product line has been designed to offer the most energy efficient means of automating the handling of products such as natural and primary foods in a secure and safe manner."

The Adept Quattro s650HS has been designed from the ground up to be the most efficient mechanism for handling products from the use of advanced materials to adopting the documented benefits associated with a four arm kinematic solution. In tests performed by Adept Technology, the Adept Quattro was benchmarked against various robotic solutions including delta, SCARA and articulated arms. Testing showed the Quattro to perform identical tasks (handling products with the same payload and motion profile) while consuming significantly less energy. When the Quattro was compared to delta and SCARA robots, the Quattro consumed 25% and 35% less power respectively. In tests comparing the Quattro to an articulated arm at the serial linked robot's fastest cycle, the Quattro performed the operation using 43% less average power.

When considering the total cost of ownership for solutions utilizing the Adept Quattro, energy consumption has far reaching implications. At the outset, the return on investment is compressed especially in regions where electricity costs are high. For companies who have committed to sustainable and green production practices the Quattro's energy efficiency is perfectly aligned to corporate and social directives.

Adept is a global, leading provider of intelligent robotics systems and services that enable customers to achieve precision, speed, quality and productivity in their assembly, handling, packaging, testing and other automated processes. With a comprehensive portfolio of high-performance motion controllers, application development software, vision-guidance technology and high-reliability robot mechanisms, Adept provides specialized, cost-effective robotics systems and services to high-growth markets including Packaged Goods, Life Sciences, Disk Drive/Electronics and Semiconductor/Solar, as well as to traditional industrial markets including machine tool automation and automotive components.
