  8. Evolution of Robotics in Packaging "Controlled by Adept" ABB IRB340 FlexPicker • 1980s to 1990s • SigPack Systems used AdeptOne robots • First Delta (3 parallel arm) robot licensed and sold by Demaurex in 1988 • ABB Flexible Automation bought license and built IRB340 FlexPicker • SigPack bought the robots but needed vision guided conveyor tracking solution • Bosch bought Sig and Demaurex • Schubert introduced its own SCARAs to compete with Adept • Invert Mount SCARAs (not direct drive driven) • Adept decided to focus on value of controls technology • Put controls on SigPack and ABB robots SigPack Delta Robot XR31 Confidential - Do not Distribute

  9. Evolution of Robotics in Packaging • 1990s to 2000s • Companies focusing on new generation of mechanisms specifically designed around packaging • Adept designed and marketed table-top SCARAs – Adept Cobra • Focus on light payload (up to 5.5 kg) for very high speed packaging and other discrete automation tasks • Introduced line of 6 axis robots – Adept Viper • Flexibility • Precision • Speed • Common work envelope for robots • Unique advantage of superiority in controls • Dual robot configuration options Adept Cobra Adept Viper Confidential - Do not Distribute

  10. Packaging Solutions • Multiple mechanisms for various Packaging Tasks • Pick-and-Place • Cobra (tabletop or ceiling-mountable) • Quattro • Packing • Cobra • Viper • More flexibility and precision • Palletizing • Viper Confidential - Do not Distribute

  11. Cobra s800 Inverted – latest addition to Cobra product line • Over-the-belt lightweight packaging • 5.5 kg max payload • 800 mm reach • Same high performance as standard Cobra • Dual configuration option Confidential - Do not Distribute

  12. High Speed Pick-and-Place with Quattro • Superior Design • 4 parallel arms instead of just 3 - enables excellent load balance • Lightweight carbon fiber arms for high acceleration • AIB (Amplifiers in Base) saves workspace and cabling • Highest speeds and throughput • 20% better performance and lower cycle times than other parallel /Delta style robots • Ideal for one at a time pick-and- place, packaging and kit assembly applications • Nearly 20% larger work envelope than competitive robots for higher productivity • Consistent performance across entire work envelope Confidential - Do not Distribute
