Rimrock Corporation becomes RIA Certified Robot Integrator

Company becomes RIA's 17th Certified Robot Integrator.

By ·

Robotic Industries Association (RIA) today announced that Rimrock Corporation has received the RIA Certified Robot Integrator designation. In order to become certified, Rimrock Corporation completed a rigorous process which includes an on-site audit and testing of key personnel among other important criteria.

“We are delighted to welcome Rimrock Corporation as our seventeenth Certified Robot Integrator,” said Jeff Burnstein, president of RIA. “The Certified Robot Integrator program strengthens the overall integrator channel and allows integrators to benchmark their own processes against best industry practices. Based on industry feedback, we have found that achieving certification has proven to be valuable for integrators looking to showcase their capabilities to both users and suppliers.”

“Rimrock has been integrating robots for more than 25 years, with hundreds of successful installations into harsh casting and forging environments. This experience, coupled with RIA’s integrator certification, can give manufacturers great confidence in our ability to increase their production with robot automation,” said Mark Reikert, manager – applications engineering and project management of Rimrock Corporation.

RIA requires each certified integrator 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.

“Robotics customers, of course, still need to conduct their own due diligence on the suppliers they select,” said Burnstein. “RIA cannot guarantee the work of any integrator or recommend which integrators to choose. We have more than 60 system integrator members and look forward to having more of them go through the certification process in the near future.”
