PLEASANTON, CA-Adept Technology Inc., a leading provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, announced that Austong Intelligent Robot Technology of China placed an order for twelve Adept Quattro s650H robots to automate a secondary packaging operation for a leading dairy processor in China. The order was received and shipped in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010. As a member of the Adept Preferred Partner Program, Austong expands the benefits of this program channel to include manufacturers in China where it plans to work with Adept's Asian engineering team to deliver highly reliable and cost-effective robotic packaging solutions.

"Adept is proud to be a partner to Austong Robot in providing high-performance packaging solutions to China's dairy industry," said Hai Chang, managing director of Asia operations for Adept Technology Inc. "With the recent labor unrest issues and changes in government labor policies, China's manufacturing base is increasingly turning to flexible automation which delivers significantly higher efficiencies when compared to traditional labor-intensive operations. With over 20 years of international experience in providing flexible, turnkey solutions, the management team of Austong Robot is well-positioned to serve China's growing demand for automated packaging solutions and is an excellent fit for Adept's Preferred Partner Program."

"Austong engineers have worked with Adept for years in our turnkey solutions business. We selected Adept's Quattro robots for a very demanding project with multiple high-throughput production lines because of the extremely fast speeds of the Adept Quattro robot and ease-of-deployment of their Adept ACE PackXpert software," said Dr. Zhengde Li, general manager of Austong Intelligent Robot Technology. "We're extremely confident that we can rapidly deploy our high-performance, flexible, low-cost solutions to China's packaging industry by partnering with Adept and utilizing their innovative products for high-speed intelligent handling."

China is rapidly adopting automation and control technologies to increase efficiencies and reduce production costs in support of the country's astonishing expansion typified by the 11.9% year over year growth in the economy for the first quarter of 2010. Chinese manufacturers of processing and packaging equipment have been quick to recognize the benefits of incorporating international brands of automation and control technology to their machines.
