QUAN PREPS LOI TO PURSUE JOINT VENTURE WITH UNIVERSITY RESEARCHERS

Robotics company Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) announced today that it has prepared a letter of intent to present to the University of Houston in order to move forward with negotiations toward a possible joint venture with the school's robotics researchers.


Prof. Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal is leading a team of engineers at the University of Houston that's close to a new breakthrough that could allow wheelchair users to walk by manipulating robotic exoskeletons using only brainwaves.

Quantum signed a non-discloser agreement with the University of Houston this summer. Once the letter of intent has been signed by both parties, Quantum will have weeks to negotiate a possible definitive agreement to help bring the interface technology to market.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
