TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.


Addressing Safety when Introducing Cobots to the Workforce

Cobots are safer than ever, but care must still be taken during implementation. These 4 steps will help.

Talking Automate 2019 with TÜV Rheinland

Booth #9530 - We will be using a cobot from Universal Robots to demonstrate safety evaluation and testing for a robot cell. We will also touch on the technical specifications for important robotics standards.

Robotics Predictions: The impact of IoT, collaborative robots and startups

Start-ups must consider regulatory regulations from the start of design, which rarely happens. A wonderful product doesn't sell very well if many companies will not purchase because they to not meet applicable safety regulations.

White Papers


An integral part of the workforce, industrial robots are transforming factories and manufacturing plants around the globe. These robots are taking on a wide range of tasks, from the monotonous, to the hazardous to the intricate, in support of their human counterparts. This paper will focus on collaborative robots (cobots) and the safety requirements for their applications, including how to conduct a risk assessment for force and power limited robots.


The 4th Edition of UL 1740 is an important leap forward in requirements, aligning it with globally published robotics standard ISO 10218. This update was essential because associated standards ANSI/RIA R15.06 and ISO 10218 had been previously updated to incorporate allowances for a risk/performance based approach to safety as opposed to a prescriptive based approach. In addition, updates made to NFPA 79 and other industrial standards over the past few years needed to be addressed. While many of the changes to the UL 1740 standard are modest, there are a few important modifications that can potentially impact current and future certifications of robotic equipment. The purpose of this paper is to outline those changes, the potential impact and your responsibilities based on the update to the 4th Edition of UL 1740.
