Intelligrated, a leading North American-owned automated material handling solutions provider headquartered in Cincinnati, OH, has received certification as a robotics integrator from the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), the industry’s largest trade group representing more than 265 corporations.
The accreditation process includes a comprehensive audit during which integrators must demonstrate the necessary level of technical knowledge required to execute robotic system projects in a safe, efficient and economical manner. The audit includes hands-on testing of key robotics personnel, as well as an on-site appraisal of robotic experience and business infrastructure.
“The RIA certification verifies our ability to integrate robotic systems successfully,” says Intelligrated palletizing and robotics systems product manager Earl Wohlrab. “Prior to RIA’s certification program, customers had a difficult time identifying integrators that meet both business and robotic expertise requirements. Now, this accreditation can be the standard by which end users evaluate their potential vendors to minimize risk and ensure successful implementations.”
Intelligrated is a single-source provider with over 20 years of robotics experience. The company is capable of integrating a wide variety of material handling components, including robotic arms from multiple manufacturers, as well as a variety of custom end-of-arm tooling. Its Alvey Robotics provide complete, integrated robotic material handling systems including system design, fabrication, installation, commissioning and after-sales customer support.
