Adept Lynx helps move materials [Gulf Industry]

(Gulf Industry Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Adept Technology Inc, a leading provider of intelligent robots and autonomous mobile solutions, has announced the launch of the Adept Lynx, a self-navigating Autonomous Indoor Vehicle (AIV) designed for moving material from point to point in challenging environments that may include confined passageways as well as dynamic and peopled locations.

Given the vehicle's intuitive user interface, the system can be customised for various applications and payloads by integrators, distributors, and users alike. Lynx was presented in Adept's booth at the Automate 2013 show as well as in partner booths at the adjoining ProMat show in January in Chicago, Illinois.

"Unlike traditional autonomously guided vehicles (AGVs), Lynx requires no facility modifications, such as floor magnets or navigational beacons, saving users up to 15 per cent in deployment costs," said Rush LaSelle, vice president and general manager of mobile robots for Adept Technology. "Additionally, the vehicle includes Adept's proprietary software and controls allowing it to intelligently navigate around people and unplanned obstacles that stop AGVs short." Manufacturing, warehousing, clean technologies and healthcare are but a few industries already realising attractive returns on invested capital through the use of mobile robots from Adept. The Lynx AIV supports payloads up to 60 kg, utilises a digital map for localisation and manages power and self-charging operations.

Also at the Automate show, John Dulchinos, Adept's CEO and president, hosted an Expert Huddle discussion on Using Flexible Automation to Achieve Reshoring.

Adept provides specialised, cost-effective robotics systems and services to high-growth markets including packaging, medical, electronics and logistics as well as to traditional industrial markets including automotive components.
