Robert McCurrach has joined the Automated Imaging Association (AIA) as director, standards development. McCurrach has over 25 years of experience in the manufacturing sector, with a focus on global engineering management, strategic programme and process management, primarily for the nuclear, defence and automotive industries.

Standards play a key role in the vision and imaging industry by ensuring interoperability of components and shortening the time it takes to get new products to market. Increased standards activity led the AIA to add a full time dedicated staff person. McCurrach will work closely with Jeff Fryman, who has handled standards development for AIA and its sister trade group, Robotic Industries Association, for the last 15 years.

'Bob's engineering, product and process management skills make him a natural fit for the role. He brings the right mix of technical savvy and experience to the association. We look forward to advancing our standards programme to the next level and supporting this important component of the global vision industry,' said Jeff Burnstein, president of the AIA.

'I'm eager to put my background and knowledge to work in promoting AIA's commitment to improving and expanding their standards programme. I look forward to working on standards enhancements and supporting emerging standards within the machine vision industry,' said McCurrach.
