Adept Technology Introduces Simplified Robotic Parts Feeding Solution

January 2013

Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent robots and autonomous mobile solutions announced the introduction of the Adept FlexiBowl®, an innovative vision-based robotic parts feeding solution available as an option on all Adept robot systems. The Adept FlexiBowl® utilizes circular band tracking to simplify and speed the robotic acquisition of component parts used in assembly, handling and kitting applications. Adept FlexiBowl® is capable of quickly separating and orienting a wide variety of parts made from diverse materials including plastic, metal, rubber and silicone.

"Unlike traditional vibratory bowl feeders, which have limited flexibility due to their high level of customization, the Adept FlexiBowl® utilizes Adept vision technology to create a truly flexible standard parts feeding solution that can be deployed and redeployed quickly eliminating the time, cost and complexity associated with traditional parts feeding," said Robert Cain, president and chief executive officer of Adept Technology. "The Adept FlexiBowl® dramatically increases the flexibility of a robotic system opening up new applications to automation and increasing the competitiveness of manufacturers around the world."
