Adept Technology, Inc.
today announced its Adept Quattro Robot has broken the 300 cycle per minute barrier. The record robotic performance threshold was set using the 25mm x 300mm x 25mm standard cycle. The industry has long benchmarked speeds usingthis quantifier and Adept has once again raised the bar.
"The Quattro robot is the fastest robot in the world and its advantages over conventional robots not only include faster cycles and settling times but increased payload and more consistent performance throughout the workspace," said Rush LaSelle, director of global sales and marketing for Adept Technology, Inc. "As Adept continues driving technology to higher levels of performance our clients benefit by realizing throughput previously only offered by conventional equipment combined with the flexibility of manual labor. We are pleased to increasingly offer manufacturers and processors means of achieving high levels of productivity and quality while enabling them to address the pressures of reduced product and packaging life cycles."
The Adept Quattro™ s650H is a parallel robot specifically designed for high-speed manufacturing, packaging, material handling, and assembly applications. It differs from conventional parallel robots in that it features a four-arm kinematic. This unique design enables higher speeds, faster accelerations, and exceptional performance across the entire work envelope. Powerful compact controls and embedded amplifiers make installation easy and reduce workspace requirements. The high speed and precision of the Quattro robot make it the perfect choice for flexible packaging, material handling, kitting, and assembly applications where performance is of paramount consideration.Adept introduced the new version of the Quattro line of high speed robots, the Adept Quattro s650HS at the Pack Expo 2009 show in Las Vegas, Nevada earlier this month. The Adept Quattro s650HS is the only parallel link robot that has been USDA Accepted for meat and poultry processing. Adept Quattro s650HS is designed to provide food packagers the highest possible speeds in raw-food handling, without compromising cleanliness and hygienic standards.
