Robotic Industries Association (RIA), Ann Arbor, Mich., has announced that JR Automation, Motion Controls Robotics, Tennessee Rand, and Wolf Robotics are the first four robotic integrators to receive its new certified robot integrator designation.
To become certified, integrators go through a process that includes an on-site audit, safety training, and hands-on testing of key personnel. The program allows integrators to benchmark their own processes against best industry practices, allowing them to identify areas in which they can improve. Certified integrators need to be recertified every two years.
RIA represents more than 280 robot manufacturers, system integrators, component suppliers, end users, consulting firms, research groups, and educational institutions.
