Adept Technology Inc., a provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics, has received a $2.5-million order for vision-guided robots from a leading international consumer electronics manufacturer. The order is expected to be fulfilled and recognized as revenue this first fiscal quarter of 2010.
The company selected Adept as to provide high-speed vision-guided robot systems for precision handling and assembly operations. Adept says it has been serving the consumer electronics industry with high-precision mechanisms and controls in both standard and cleanroom configurations for more than 20 years.
“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. “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.”
