QUAN PREPS LOI TO PURSUE JOINT VENTURE WITH UNIVERSITY RESEARCHERS

Robotics company Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) announced today that it has prepared a letter of intent to present to the University of Houston in order to move forward with negotiations toward a possible joint venture with the school's robotics researchers.


Prof. Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal is leading a team of engineers at the University of Houston that's close to a new breakthrough that could allow wheelchair users to walk by manipulating robotic exoskeletons using only brainwaves.

Quantum signed a non-discloser agreement with the University of Houston this summer. Once the letter of intent has been signed by both parties, Quantum will have weeks to negotiate a possible definitive agreement to help bring the interface technology to market.

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.
