Adept’s new Cerebellum

Adept Technology has acquired Cerebellum Automation, a leader in specialized OEM robotics and motion control solutions for the medical and packaging industries.

Privately-held Cerebellum Automation is located in Chavanod, France, near Switzerland and close to key industrial centers in France, Switzerland and Italy.

Adept has agreed to purchase all outstanding shares of Cerebellum for a total purchase price of up to U$1.2 million.

Cerebellum Automation, founded in 2004, has a growing base of major OEM, end-user and system integrator customers in France and Western Europe. The company provides a number of products and services, most notably CIDE, an intuitive robotic and motion control application development suite, and ApproFlex, an award-winning feeding and small part handling system designed for end-user customers. Both CIDE and ApproFlex provide incremental value-added revenue potential to Adept’s product line and expand the market for Adept’s MotionBlox line of single and multi-axis controllers.

“The acquisition of Cerebellum Automation is both complementary and additive to Adept, augmenting our capabilities in key vertical and geographic markets,” said Robert Bucher, chief executive officer of Adept. “Cerebellum complements our strong position in Germany and gives us a greatly expanded footprint in the French automation market, which is the third largest in Europe. Their expert staff also brings proven experience in developing automation solutions for the medical and packaging markets, which we will leverage worldwide.”
