Selected for their advanced technical capabilities and knowledge base,
Adept's preferred food packaging partners define, configure, and
deliver fully integrated solutions using Adept robots, software, and
grippers to increase speed and efficiency on food processing lines.



"Automated primary food packaging necessitates use of equipment that
meets stringent requirements in every aspect, from gentle material
handling at high speeds to compliance with strict sanitation
requirements," said Charles Harlfinger, Harpak-ULMA CEO. "We recognize
Adept's strength in providing inventive, dependable automation products
that meet these demands. We believe Adept's capabilities fit well with
our goal of delivering to our customers the most effective, fully
integrated food packaging solutions available."



"Adept welcomes Harpak-ULMA as a new primary and secondary food
packaging partner," said Merrill Apter, Adept vice president of North
America sales. "From our 'SoftPIC' silicone food grippers to our
USDA-accepted parallel robot system, Adept provides a set of
food-focused tools that are ideal for challenging, high-throughput
applications and adaptable to flexible production requirements. We
thank Harpak-ULMA for their support in the USDA qualification of the
'Quattro' robot. We look forward to working with them now as a
preferred partner to enable state-of-the-art automated packaging
systems that enhance food processors' efficiency and yields."



Adept has developed a host of hardware and software products for use in
a food packaging environment. The company's "Quattro s650HS" is the
only high-speed parallel robot to receive USDA acceptance for meat and
poultry processing. This Quattro robot is IP qualified (IP-66
protection for the robot, IP-67 protection for the platform).
Additionally, Adept's "SoftPIC" grippers and graspers enable fast,
gentle handling of non-rigid, wet, and irregularly shaped food
products--tasks that were previously possible only with manual
handling.
