PRE-TEC, of Eugene, Or., has received the Certified Robot Integrator designation from the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), the industry’s trade group.

“We are delighted to welcome PRE-TEC as our thirteenth Certified Robot Integrator,” said Jeff Burnstein, president of RIA. “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.

“PRE-TEC is pleased to be recognized as an RIA Certified Robot Integrator, and our organization feels privileged to be the first from the Northwest,” said Rufus Burton, sales manager, Robotics at PRE-TEC. “We have offered flexible automation since 1998 and pride ourselves in our ability to work closely with the client’s management and in-house process engineers to optimize performance and productivity.”

RIA requires each certified integrator to be re-certified every two years. Detailed information on the certification program and the certified robot integrators can be found on a special section of Robotics Online (www.robotics.org).
