Quantum Marvels at PIAP's Cutting-Edge Robotics Projects as Due Diligence Begins

One promising area of research that PIAP is pursuing is robotics designed for anti-terrorist and law-enforcement use.

HOUSTON--Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) announced today that it has begun due diligence toward a definitive agreement with the prestigious Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements (PIAP) in Warsaw, Poland-and the company is already impressed by what it has found.


"PIAP is truly on the cutting edge of European robotics innovation, and the institute currently has many exciting projects we feel could be ripe for commercialization," said Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz.

One promising area of research that PIAP is pursuing is robotics designed for anti-terrorist and law-enforcement use. PIAP is the only producer of high-quality mobile counter-terrorism robots in Poland, and has been a permanent supplier of mobile robots for the country's special forces since 2000.

In addition to many other designs, PIAP has recently produced new breakthroughs such as the Tactical Throwable Robot (TRM), a small robotic device designed for anti-terrorist applications. The TRM is composed of a pipe-shaped body which houses a camera and a microphone. It can be thrown into a structure or into an area of operation from a significant distance and steered by remote control in order to perform area reconnaissance, inspection and explosives neutralization. It's even designed to withstand impact when dropped from a high altitude.

"The TRM is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to PIAP's robotics breakthroughs," Federowicz said. "We look forward to learning more about all of the institute's current projects and we plan to begin negotiating an agreement very soon."

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.
