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


While collaborative robots (cobots) are emerging as key participants in the workplace it is imperative to remember that having humans and robots working in close proximity is not without its challenges, safety being paramount among them. This paper will focus on cobots and the safety requirements for their applications, with a focus on key standards and regulations such as ISO/TS 15066 and ANSI/RIA R15.06.


While many of the changes to the UL 1740:2018 standard were modest, there were 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.


Because of their long presence in the workplace, industrial robots have well-defined safety standards and testing protocol. However, advances in technology mean that they now have other features beyond the basic definitions, so it is important that these robots comply with any additional end-product standards for electrical, mechanical and functional safety. Download our whitepaper to learn more about the compliance requirements for industrial robots.


A robotic cell is a system dedicated to performing a specified task. It includes the robot, controller, and whatever other parts are required to safely perform its function, such as guards, conveyors, and sensors. Newer versions of industrial robotic cells include sensors, cameras, and light curtains to separate people and robots rather than a large fence, saving space and allowing for more flexibility in integration. Download our whitepaper for a look at the regulations that help ensure these industrial robotic cells operate as intended.


The ISO 3691-series covers the basic safety requirements for driverless industrial trucks AGVs (Automatic Guided Vehicles) and other such systems. Before, there was no harmonized, listed standard available for AGVs, although EN 1525:1997 was used by many truck manufacturers. Download our whitepaper in order to explore the key differences between the ISO 3691-4 standard and the EN 1525 standard.


The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has only accelerated the integration of automated solutions as companies re-examined their current manufacturing and warehousing practices to increase the safety of their employees, even as the demand for certain products and services has increased. This whitepaper will outline the current standards landscape for industrial mobile robot platforms.


While industrial robot standards consider the end user to be a trained person, personal care robots can be used around anyone – trained or untrained. The environment that these robots can be used in is also much less predictable and the tasks of a personal care robot are not as well defined and repetitive like in the industrial world. Thus this requires some very special safety considerations as everyone can now be at risk. In this whitepaper, we’ll explore what manufacturers and businesses need to be aware if they plan to enter this new, rapidly growing market.
