Four companies are the first to receive the new Certified Robot Integrator designation from the Robotic Industries Association (RIA). JR Automation, Motion Controls Robotics, Tennessee Rand, and Wolf Robotics are the first four companies to receive the designation.“We are very excited to announce this first group of Certified Robotic Integrators,” Jeff Burnstein, President of RIA, said in a statement.  “In order to become certified, integrators go through a rigorous process which includes an on-site audit, safety training and hands-on testing of key personnel among other important criteria.  Based on feedback from the industry, we believe that achieving certification will be valuable to integrators looking to showcase their capabilities and experience to users and suppliers alike.“Additionally, the program allows integrators to benchmark their own processes against best industry practices, allowing them to identify areas in which they can improve.  This also helps the industry by strengthening the overall integrator channel,” Burnstein explained.The RIA announced the new Certified Robot Integrator program in late January at the Robotics Industry Forum in Orlando. Burnstein said several other integrators are in the process of becoming certified, with three already slated for audits in the next several weeks.
