QComp Technologies has become an RIA-Certified Robot Integrator. QComp has completed the qualification process and is proud to be a part of the certified integrator program. QComp’s core business is the integration of robots into automated packaging and manufacturing solutions.

“RIA certification confirms the higher standards that QComp has maintained as our routine practice,” said Tom Doyle, president, QComp Technologies, Greenville, Wisconsin. “Having our engineers pass the testing at the Expert level shows the dedication and competence of the QComp staff and our internal emphasis on training. Benchmarking our processes and engineering competence against other top robotic integrators helps establish QComp’s place in the market as an experienced, competent and customer focused integrator.”

We feel that this certification will provide potential robot customers another standard to gauge the capabilities and experience of the integrator(s) they may be considering. The thorough certification process includes an on-site audit, safety training and hands-on testing of key personnel. The certification audit also uses criteria such as project management, documentation, service and overall integrator experience to achieve the certification. The RIA certification should provide our potential customers with confidence that QComp has the people and processes in place to provide a successful project.

The new RIA Certified Robot Integrator program was officially announced in late January 2012 at the Robotics Industry Forum in Orlando. Each certified integrator will need to be recertified every two years. Detailed information on the certification program and the certified robot integrators can be found on a special section of Robotics Online at http://www.robotics.org.

“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.” said Jeff Burnstein, president of RIA.

“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.
