Adept Technology to Showcase Robotics Solutions for Materials Handling Applications at MODEX 2014

Attendees Encouraged to Visit Expo Booth 4534 to See Latest Intelligent Autonomous Mobile Robot Demonstrations

Pleasanton, Calif., March 12, 2014 - Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a

leading provider of intelligent robots, autonomous mobile solutions and
services, today announced that it will showcase a range of state-of-the-art
intelligent robotics solutions ideal for warehouse and distribution center
materials handling applications at MODEX 2014. An event focused on the
manufacturing and supply chain industries, MODEX 2014 will be held March
17-20 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

"From our versatile mobile robots to our advanced vision-guided industrial
robotic systems, Adept is providing a new level of capability in terms of
process efficiency, material traceability, and automation flexibility for
many logistics applications," said Terry Hannon, Adept chief business
development and strategy officer. "We encourage MODEX attendees to come by
our expo booth, watch our live equipment demonstrations, and understand how
our robots can improve the efficiency of their warehousing processes."

At its MODEX booth, Adept will show its "Lynx" intelligent autonomous mobile
robot platform equipped with various payload modules to accommodate
materials movement in a warehouse setting. Designed for swift and flexible
point-to-point transporting, Lynx robots are self-navigating, automatically
avoiding obstacles and instantly planning an alternate route to reach a
goal. Lynx robots deploy without facility modifications and simply connect
with a user's enterprise software system to receive commands.

Adept will also demonstrate a multi-axis "Quattro" robot. The fastest
parallel robot in the world, the Quattro robot is an overhead-mounted system
intended for smooth motion, high throughput applications such as bin
picking, assembly and packing.

Adept's MODEX booth number is 4534. For added convenience, attendees can
make booth appointments by contacting Christine Hopkins, marketing
coordinator, at christine.hopkins@adept.com.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
