QUAN: The Robotics Age Has Already Begun

Emerging robotics company Quantum International Corp. plans to capitalize on the quiet rise of the robots by delivering powerful new innovations to an international market.

HOUSTON, Aug 03, 2012 -- Though robotics is commonly viewed as a trend for the future, more robots than many realize are already hard at work alongside humans every day. Emerging robotics company Quantum International Corp. QUAN -13.60% plans to capitalize on the quiet rise of the robots by delivering powerful new innovations to an international market.


"The truth is, there are already robots all around us," said Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz. "They go unnoticed because they don't look like the robots in the movies. Most people are aware of the automatons that law enforcement uses to defuse dangerous situations and limit risk to our first responders, but not everyone realizes that Redbox movie dispensers are robots. The automatic carwash at the gas station is a sophisticated robot."

"Rather than replacing humans, robots are going to work right alongside us every day," he added.

Quantum is currently evaluating several new target robotics companies for potential acquisition and joint venture. With simple, powerful new technologies such as the Apple AAPL +1.43% iPad pushing robotics in incredible new directions, Quantum is making plans to profit from the incredible new wave of robotics innovations currently in development around the world.

The company is in the midst of conducting due diligence toward a definitive agreement with the prestigious Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements (PIAP) in Warsaw, Poland. PIAP is on the cutting edge of European robotics innovation, and the institute is working on many exciting robotics projects Quantum believes could be ripe for commercialization.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
