Adept Technology will provide high-speed vision-guided robot systems for a leading consumer electronics manufacturer. The manufacturer will use the systems for precision handling and assembly operations. The contract, which is worth $2.5 million, calls for the systems to be installed in Asia.
"The mechanisms involved in this order will be installed in Asia as part of a major capacity expansion program," said Hai Chang, managing director of Asia Operations for Adept Technology. "With the significant impact of the global downturn on the semiconductor and electronics industries and Asian manufacturing output, we are cautiously optimistic that this recent business and other positive signs in the sector point towards the start of a steady recovery. We are greatly pleased to have this opportunity to continue to serve and support this important global customer and their manufacturing operations."
