Adept Cobra Robots and Motion Control Workcells to Automate Sub-Assembly of
Smart Phone Electronics

PLEASANTON, Calif., June 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adept Technology, Inc.
(Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent robots and autonomous mobile
solutions, today announced it has received a total order of $2.6 million from
CASTEC International Corp., Taiwan for robotics to be used in high precision
workcells for one of the largest providers of semiconductor manufacturing
services. The workcells will utilize Adept Cobra robots, motion control and
integrated vision to automate the sub assembly of smart phone electronics. 

"As smartphone packaging becomes more dense, it is becoming more difficult to
assemble by hand.CASTEC and its customer needed to find a way to drastically
improve the overall yields of a smartphone component and knew a tightly
integrated automation solution could deliver," said Hai Chang, Adept's newly
appointed Vice President, Asia and Strategic Programs."Prior to making the
decision to automate this process CASTEC's customer was seeing low yield rates
using a manual process through another vendor. The vendor contacted them to
take on the process using automation to increase the yields and reduce costs."

"We believe that the Adept Cobra family of robots outperform the competitor's
robots at high payload ranges and the Adept control platform with the tightly
integrated vision technology provides the exact tools our customer needed to
maintain high yield rates," said Abel Lo, CEO of CASTEC International Corp.,
Taiwan, a leading Taiwan robot system integrator.

The Adept Cobra™ SCARA robots are affordable, high-performance SCARA robot
systems for mechanical assembly, material handling, packaging, machine
tending, screw driving, and many other applications that require fast and
precise automation. Adept's motion control technology can be used as an
addition to an existing robot or as a stand-alone system. The distributed
control architecture designed into all Adept motion control products make them
ideal for the broadest range of automation applications. Adept vision-guidance
systems allow customers to easily add out-of-the box vision capabilities to
any automation workcell.
