Adept, Harpak-ULMA Form Partnership

December 17, 2013

Adept Technology, Inc., Pleasanton, Calif., announced a partnership agreement with Harpak-ULMA Packaging, LLC, Taunton, Mass.

Selected for their advanced technical capabilities and knowledge base, Adept's preferred food packaging partners define, configure and deliver fully integrated solutions using Adept robots, software and grippers to increase speed and efficiency on food processing lines.

"Automated primary food packaging necessitates use of equipment that meets stringent requirements in every aspect, from gentle material handling at high speeds to compliance with strict sanitation requirements," says Charles Harlfinger, Harpak-ULMA CEO. "We recognize Adept's strength in providing inventive, dependable automation products that meet these demands. We believe Adept's capabilities fit well with our goal of delivering to our customers the most effective, fully integrated food packaging solutions available."

"Adept welcomes Harpak-ULMA as a new primary and secondary food packaging partner," says Merrill Apter, Adept vice president of North America sales. "From our SoftPIC silicone food grippers to our USDA-accepted parallel robot system, Adept provides a set of food-focused tools that are ideal for challenging, high-throughput applications and adaptable to flexible production requirements. We thank Harpak-ULMA for their support in the USDA qualification of the Quattro robot. We look forward to working with them now as a preferred partner to enable state-of-the-art automated packaging systems that enhance food processors' efficiency and yields."
