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.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
