New Adept Quattro s800H Parallel Robot Increases Workspace Capabilities for High-Speed Material Handling

PLEASANTON, Calif., -- Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), the leading provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, introduced a new model of their high-speed parallel style robot, Adept Quattro. The Adept Quattro s800H provides an additional member of the Quattro product family, and expands high-throughput capabilities towards applications with larger work space requirements. The Adept Quattro s800H is a parallel robot specifically designed for high-speed applications in packaging, manufacturing, assembly, and material handling, boasting a 1600 mm work envelope. The newest member of the Quattro family offers the same advanced control algorithms and proven robust design that users have come to expect from Adept combined with a larger work envelope, making the s800H an ideal overhead-mount robot when smooth motion, high-throughput, and the ability to reach a large work space are critical for project success.

The patented four-arm design contributes to reduction of the power consumption by 23% when compared to alternate kinematic solutions. The Adept Quattro is powered by ultra-compact controls and embedded amplifiers, which reduces cycle times and improves footprint efficiency.
