HOUSTON--Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB:QUAN), an emerging robotics innovation company, announced today that it has appointed Robert Federowicz as its new CEO. In his new role, Federowicz will help cultivate a new, ambitious business strategy as the company takes on robotics, an estimated $21 billion global industry.

By seeking out leading-edge robotics innovations in the medical, automotive, agriculture, and logistics sectors, among others, Federowicz will position the company as a resource for next-gen robotics products and technology.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
