Adept Technology's Robots and Servers Head to AsiaApproved by Rockwell Automation for Asia Pacific Encompass Program (January 12, 2005)
Adept Technology, Inc., a leading manufacturer of robotic systems, motion control and machine vision technology, today announced that its Adept PLC Server robotic interface, compatible with the Adept Cobra PLC line of SCARA robots, has been approved for participation in the Rockwell Automation Asia Pacific Encompass Program. Adept plans to market its PLC products in Asia utilizing Rockwell Automation's Asia Pacific Encompass Program. Rockwell Automation's Encompass Program identifies and references third-party products that complement Rockwell Automation products. The program facilitates cooperative marketing efforts with suppliers of products that help solve the automation needs of mutual customers.
"Extending the PLC Server product into Rockwell's Asia Pacific Encompass Program will help us gain the market exposure for our successful line of PLC controlled robots in key expanding markets, such as China", said John Dulchinos, vice president of sales for Adept Technology. "Adept's PLC controlled line of robots has been well received in North America due to the popularity and acceptance of Rockwell's RSLogix software environment among engineers and plant floor personnel. Our unique approach brings a new level of ease-of-use to robot programing and maintenance, making robots easier and more cost effective for manufacturers to deploy into their factories."
As a member of the Asia Pacific Encompass Program, Adept will benefit from cooperative marketing programs such as Rockwell's highly successful "Complete Automation On the Move" events that travel to local regions throughout Asia and India. "This gives us broad exposure to a new customer base and a new channel of distributors in the region," said John Duchinos.
