US machine vision firms certified by AIA

Two US machine vision firms, Artemis Vision and Vaia Technologies, have met the criteria to become AIA Certified System Integrators. The two firms will join thirteen other certified system integrators, and will have certification for the next three years. 

AIA's Certified System Integrator status is granted to firms who demonstrate: multiple years of vision system integration experience; a high skill level of employees that include a minimum number of advanced level certified vision professionals; the completion of a number of successful integration projects each year; and verifiable experience in the industries they wish to show specialisation. The certification then verifies these critical qualifications to the firms’ customers. 

‘Artemis Vision and Vaia Technologies have proven their experience in vision system integration,’ commented AIA's director of market analysis, Alex Shikany. ‘We are proud to announce that they can now use their certification as a verification of critical qualifications to their customers. We warmly welcome both companies to the AIA Certified System Integrator community.’

‘Becoming an AIA Certified System Integrator is an exciting step forward for VAIA Technologies’ said Scott Crawley, president of Vaia Technologies. ‘Customers looking for automated solutions to complex product and process inspection tasks, increasingly want to engage with partners who can provide fully turnkey solutions – from system design, right through to installation, service and support. This means that selecting the right partner is an incredibly important decision. Customers want to be certain at the outset, that their chosen partner has a level of capability, expertise and experience that they can rely on throughout the engagement. The AIA is a well-respected organisation with a rigorous qualification process, and our Certification will further reassure customers that selecting Vaia Technologies for their vision integration needs will be a great decision - one that can be relied on.’

Tom Brennan, president at Artemis Vision, added: ‘The team at Artemis Vision is thrilled to become an AIA Certified Vision Integrator. Choosing a knowledgeable partner to implement a successful vision system is a crucial part of the [integration] process, and we hope that customers will find the value in an independent third party, such as AIA, that continues to validate our engineering skills and processes.’ 

One of the elements of the certification programme is the Certified Vision Professional-Advanced level achievement to be earned by each integrator's personnel. The achievement consists of two CVP courses, Basic and Advanced, that can be taken online through AIA's website. AIA then offers both the Basic and Advanced certification exams by appointment at its headquarters and at various industry events across the world.
