Adept Technology, Inc., Pleasanton, Calif., introduced two new additions to its Viper family of 6-axis articulated robots—the Viper 700 and Viper 900.

Both models offer the versatility of a large working area with the convenience of a streamlined, compact architecture, making them ideal for assembly, material handling and machine tending applications.

The Viper 700 and Viper 900 offer fast, precise arm movements with a maximum reach of 723 mm and 912 mm, respectively, and accommodate payloads up to 7 kg.

Other key features include:

·         A slim robotic arm design that minimizes the space required for work cells.

·         An IP67 rating standard on both models, and corrosion-resistant materials for easy washdown.

·         Powerful controls embedded into an amplifier approximately half the size of competitive robot amplifiers, saving floor space and reducing installation cost and complexity.

·         A hollow wrist that streamlines cabling to the end-of-arm tooling, minimizing risks associated with brushing cables against other objects in the workspace.


To enable rapid deployment, Viper 700 and Viper 900 robots are equipped with Adept ACE software, a unique tool offering a friendly point-and-click application to allow offline programming, 3D process emulation and optional vision guidance and conveyor tracking integration. Other system options include Adept's SmartVision MX vision processing platform and high-resolution cameras for machine vision and guidance, and Intelligent Force Sensing for precision assembly applications.
