Press release date: July 24, 2012

Grimsby, Ontario, Canada - RMT Robotics® (www.rmtrobotics.com), a Cimcorp Oy company and the manufacturer and integrator of the ADAM autonomous mobile robot (AMR) (www.adamrobot.com), is pleased to celebrate seven years of ADAM's proven industry success as a tire handling solution. Since July of 2005, ADAM has maximized the efficiency of green tire (GT) transport from component handling to tire build machine (TBM) collection to press delivery.

ADAM promotes lean manufacturing efficiency in tire manufacturing facilities by automating component handling and orchestrating work-in-process (WIP) logistics, delivering what is needed in the exact time and quantity required. Building on RMT's gantry-based automated storage and retrieval system for the tire industry, ADAM provides a flexible robotic solution for press delivery without the expense and disruption of conventional GT storage and press delivery systems.

ADAM delivers seamless, intelligent and efficient transportation of green tires through:

· Compact design - ADAM can position itself beneath the press load arm.
· Lean manufacturing - Reduced quantities of WIP at TBM eliminates clutter and improves efficiency.
· Flexibility and modularity - No external guide path network or sensors necessary, ADAM requires few modifications to infrastructure or operations.
· Adaptability - ADAM is capable of delivering both passenger and truck tires and accommodates multi-style presses.

"Since 2005, ADAM has been attracting interest around the world as a state-of-the-art robotic green tire handling solution capable of reducing operating costs and improving overall plant productivity," said Don Heelis, global sales manager - tire systems, RMT Robotics. "ADAM's flexibility and modularity as well as lean manufacturing capabilities make it the ideal solution for complex tire manufacturing environments."

ADAM AMRs

ADAM is an AMR that independently performs random origin to random destination transport of WIP materials and finished goods in lean manufacturing and assembly applications. ADAM is designed to perform missions autonomously, navigating around fixed and moving objects, free of guide wires, reflectors or transponders.
