Two companies achieve robotic integrator recertification
Wolf Robotics and Motion Controls Robotics, Inc. (MCRI) achieved recertification for the Robotic Industries Association (RIA) Certified Robot Integrator program.
The Robotic Industries Association (RIA) announced that Wolf Robotics and Motion Controls Robotics, Inc. (MCRI) achieved recertification as part of the RIA Certified Robot Integrator program. Both companies achieved their initial certification in April 2012 and were among the first to be recognized by the group. They achieved their certification by completing a rigorous process, which includes an on-site audit and testing of key personnel. The certification program was established to provide robot integrators with a way to benchmark against industry best practices and allows robot users to develop a baseline for evaluating robot integrators. The RIA currently has over 20 Certified Robot Integrators and requires each of them to be recertified every two years.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
