Adept Technology to Showcase Robotics Solutions for Materials Handling Applications at MODEX 2014

Attendees Encouraged to Visit Expo Booth 4534 to See Latest Intelligent Autonomous Mobile Robot Demonstrations

Pleasanton, Calif., March 12, 2014 - Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a

leading provider of intelligent robots, autonomous mobile solutions and
services, today announced that it will showcase a range of state-of-the-art
intelligent robotics solutions ideal for warehouse and distribution center
materials handling applications at MODEX 2014. An event focused on the
manufacturing and supply chain industries, MODEX 2014 will be held March
17-20 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

"From our versatile mobile robots to our advanced vision-guided industrial
robotic systems, Adept is providing a new level of capability in terms of
process efficiency, material traceability, and automation flexibility for
many logistics applications," said Terry Hannon, Adept chief business
development and strategy officer. "We encourage MODEX attendees to come by
our expo booth, watch our live equipment demonstrations, and understand how
our robots can improve the efficiency of their warehousing processes."

At its MODEX booth, Adept will show its "Lynx" intelligent autonomous mobile
robot platform equipped with various payload modules to accommodate
materials movement in a warehouse setting. Designed for swift and flexible
point-to-point transporting, Lynx robots are self-navigating, automatically
avoiding obstacles and instantly planning an alternate route to reach a
goal. Lynx robots deploy without facility modifications and simply connect
with a user's enterprise software system to receive commands.

Adept will also demonstrate a multi-axis "Quattro" robot. The fastest
parallel robot in the world, the Quattro robot is an overhead-mounted system
intended for smooth motion, high throughput applications such as bin
picking, assembly and packing.

Adept's MODEX booth number is 4534. For added convenience, attendees can

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

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.
