Industrial Robot Products:
For two decades, Adept Technology has been the leading innovator of industrial robots for high speed manufacturing, and vision-guided industrial robotics. In 1984, Adept introduced the AdeptOne industrial robot, the first direct-drive, high-speed SCARA robot. Soon after, Adept pioneered vision guidance for industrial robots and now has thousands of vision-guided industrial robotic systems installed worldwide performing vision-guided assembly, part feeding and packaging applications. Today, Adept's broad industrial robot family includes high-speed SCARA robots, six-axis articulated robots, and XYZ linear modules.
Adept's industrial robotic innovations continue with its newest line of Cobra, Viper and Python industrial, high speed manufacturing, robot products. The Cobra i600 SCARA and the Cobra i800 SCARA robots are the world's fastest, high speed manufacturing robots with all electronics embedded in the robot arm. The Cobra PLC600 SCARA robot is the world's first industrial robot that is programmed directly from an Allen-Bradley PLC. Adept's Viper line of high-performance, articulated industrial robots offer six-axis speed and precision for assembly applications. For high-speed manufacturing applications requiring a cartesian robot, Adept Python linear modules allow you to configure the exact linear module system needed for your application with a very competitive delivery time. And, Adept's latest SCARA robots, the Adept Cobra s350 robot and Cobra s350 Clean Room/ESD robot, offer Adept's industrial robotic innovation in a compact, 350 mm package, suited for industrial assembly and packaging applications, and for clean room manufacturing and ESD-sensitive applications.

Adept linear module products enable designers to select a mechanism best suited for their applications. Adept linear module products can be configured into a wide variety of unique configuration styles. Each style has multiple modules types and module lengths to choose from, providing thousands of unique linear module robots.
Adept Python™ is a family of high-quality linear modules for assembly and material handling applications. Python linear modules incorporate unique design features making them the most robust linear modules for gantry or cantilever configurations.
Our online 3D Linear Module Builder allows you to configure your linear module system, view a 3D model, download the corresponding CAD file in a variety of formats, and submit an online request for quote.
Robot & Motion Controls:
Adept Distributed Controls
Adept controllers are designed to take advantage of Adept's SmartAmp technology and SmartServo architecture to create a distributed control system.
The Adept SmartAmp is designed to be mounted on the mechanism at the point-of-use. The SmartAmp has an embedded processor, which executes the servo processes. For single-axis applications it can even serve as the motion controller.
Placing the servo-drive on the mechanism allows significant reductions in: panel space required for the controls system; cabling required for multi-axis mechanisms; implementation costs. By embedding a powerful DSP onboard the SmartAmp, the servo loop closes at a higher rate, providing improved performance through improved settling times and more accurate path following.
With the introduction of the Adept SmartAmp and SmartModules, the Adept SmartServo architecture was born. Since then we have continued to introduce products based on the SmartServo architecture, including: the SmartController family, Servo Kits, the sMI6 motion control interface, the AdeptSix and Adept Viper robot families and, finally, the Adept Cobra s600/800 robots.
Because these products are based on the SmartServo distributed controls architecture, the controls components are mounted at the point-of-use rather than in a centralized cabinet, which results in: less space usage, a reduction in cabling, dramatic cost savings and improved reliability.
