Adept Technology, Inc: Ultra-fast robot
Adept Technology has introduced the Adept Quattro™ s650 robot, an ultra-fast, light payload packaging and handling robot designed to serve the food, consumer goods, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries.
Robot uses a patented 4-link parallel drive and carbon fiber construction to provide packaging cycle times said to be twice as fast as conventional robots—240 pick-and-place cycles/min. Controls are integrated inside the robot, virtually eliminating external control cabinets. The company’s SmartController™ platform provides integrated vision and tracking for as many as 6 conveyors. System features over-the-belt mounting, a 1,300-mm work envelope, a 250-mm Z-stroke, and a washdown option.
