PLEASANTON, Calif., Oct 13, 2009  -- Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, today announced it will be demonstrating the highest speed flexible packaging solutions available at the Japan International Packaging Machinery Show 2009 in Tokyo, Japan from October 20-23, 2009. The company will be showcasing its Adept Quattro s650H robot with vision in booth 3D41. The company's demonstrations will feature unique and flexible solutions that enable producers to increase throughput while lowering Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) as quantified by Cost-Per-Pick (CPP). 

"Asia is one of the strongest and fastest growing regions in the global economy and its manufacturers are at the forefront of embracing innovative and flexible solutions," said Rush LaSelle, director of global sales and marketing for Adept Technology, Inc. "The Adept Quattro s650H brings high speed production and the inherent flexibility of robotic automation to food producers and others who require exacting levels of performance in their processes." 

Adept Quattro s650H
The Adept Quattro™ s650H is a parallel robot specifically designed for high-speed manufacturing, packaging, material handling, and assembly applications. It is the only robot in the world that features a four-arm rotational platform. The design delivers maximum speed, maximum acceleration, and exceptional performance across the entire work envelope. The Adept Quattro s650H has once again demonstrated its industry leading speed by exceeding 300 cycles per minute which further empowers companies to maximize the throughput of their production lines. Powerful compact controls and embedded amplifiers also make installation easy while reducing work cell and overall factory footprint requirements. The speed and precision of the Quattro robot combined with recently becoming USDA Accepted make it the perfect choice for a variety of applications such as raw food handling, flexible packaging, material handling, kitting, and assembly applications where performance is of paramount consideration. 

The Japan International Packaging Machinery Show is Asia's largest packaging machinery venue drawing visitors from all over the world who come looking for the latest in machinery, technology, and information. Japan Pack is an excellent opportunity for attendees to gain insight into developments and trends in the adoption of robotics within the packaging industry.
