Adept Technology to Showcase Advanced Mobile Platforms at Major Packaging Industry Event

Adept Technology, Inc.

Suite of Disruptive Mobile Platforms Drive Solutions to Challenges Faced in Production, Manufacturing, and Logistics

Adept Technology to Showcase Advanced Mobile Platforms at Major Packaging Industry EventPleasanton, Calif.—Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, announced that they will showcase their mobile platform technology using intelligent natural feature navigation for the packaging industry at the Pack Expo 2010 event in Chicago IL, October 31-November 3. Adept’s mobile robot solutions support the major logistics challenges faced in manufacturing environments, including line replenishment, flexibility in routing, scheduling and exception handling, and the costs associated with deployment.

"Adept’s ability to rapidly deploy mobile technologies into the packaging industry aligns perfectly with the needs and demands of our defined markets," said Rush LaSelle, director of global sales and marketing of Adept Technology, Inc. "We are focused on removing the challenges and costs associated with manual and less sophisticated means of moving goods throughout production environments in a flexible manner to enable productivity gains beyond those already realized in employing conventional automation."

Leading the product suite is the Adept MT400 mobile robot powered by Adept’s Motivity Core. The Adept MT400 finds its way, performs tasks, speaks, responds, and carries out other jobs automatically and on demand. Motivity Core-based products differentiate themselves in their ability to deliver real natural feature navigation, which eliminates the barriers to the adoption associated with traditional AGV technologies including costs and complexity of installation. This enabling technology solves many problems faced by those who currently employ AGVs, and those who haven’t due to their limitations.

The company’s intelligent AGV technology, powered by Adept’s Motivity Core will be displayed along with Adept’s newest automation cell dedicated to the packaging industry, Adept PAC (Packaging Automation Cell) in booth N-4313 at McCormick Place Convention Center. The Adept PAC platform is built with USDA-accepted materials, and comes pre-engineered to ensure quick start up and maximum productivity.
