Midwest Engineering Systems Inc., an innovative provider of premier custom machines and integrated systems, is proud to present seven (7) team members with Expert Robotic Technologist Certificates from The Robotic Industries Association (RIA).


After receiving the Robotic Integrator Certificate in September 2013, Midwest Engineering Systems Inc. awarded seven team members with Robot Expert Technologists Certifications. To earn the Certified Expert Robotic Technologist status, candidates must pass a hands-on exam on general robotic tasks and answer work and education experience related to the industry.

"We are proud to be an RIA Certified Robotic Integrator qualified with the most Certified Expert Robotic Technologists in the country. These certifications highlight our continuing commitment to provide best-in-class knowledge and experience to our customers looking to reach their automation goals." states Terry Merrifeld; VP/General Manager Welding Systems & Services at Midwest Engineering Systems.

The entire certification process demonstrates the level of technical knowledge required to execute robotic system projects in a safe, efficient, and economical manner. It also signifies that the company as well as each certified technician has the ability to work within various standards.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
