QUAN: The iPad Era of Robotics Has Arrived

A new wave of robotics taking advantage of the iPad's ease of use and processing power is coming, and Quantum is well-positioned to help bring these innovations to market.

HOUSTON, Aug 01, 2012-- Quantum International Corp. QUAN +0.05% believes that the era of iPad robots is now underway, and the emerging robotics company is searching for partnering opportunities to capitalize on this explosive new trend.


"By ushering in a new generation of tablet computers, Apple AAPL -0.03% has given robot designers and application developers the ability to collaborate in the pursuit of practical, affordable mobile robotic solutions," said Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz. "A new wave of robotics taking advantage of the iPad's ease of use and processing power is coming, and Quantum is well-positioned to help bring these innovations to market."

A leader in this new wave of robotics is iRobot's Ava Mobile Robotics Platform. When docked with an iPad, the platform is capable of autonomous navigation and can be programmed using the iPad's easy-to-use controls. This revolutionary functionality has nearly limitless applications for businesses, residences and institutions, and programs can be sold using Apple's App Store.

"iRobot's Ava platform is exactly the kind of innovation that we want to help commercialize," Federowicz said. "We're targeting hardware and applications developers in the early stages of commercialization that we can help to bring their products to a global market."

Quantum is already working with some of the world's top robotics innovators to produce a new generation of robots for everyday use. The company is currently performing due diligence toward a definitive agreement with the Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements (PIAP) in Warsaw, Poland.

Quantum is focused on aggressive growth as it competes alongside robotics companies including Honda Motor Co., Ltd. HMC -0.23% , AeroVironment, Inc. AVAV -1.06% and Intuitive Surgical, Inc. ISRG +0.01% .

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

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.
