FRANKLIN, Mass. – RT Engineering Corp., a leading provider of industrial automation, control systems, and related manufacturing services, announced today, it has achieved "Recognized System Integrator" status for Information Technology through the Rockwell Automation (NYSE: ROK) PartnerNetwork™.

This certification builds on RT Engineering's status as a Rockwell Automation control system integrator and now includes proven competency in delivering projects that leverage the FactoryTalk® software suite of solutions for Manufacturing Intelligence and Production Management.

RT Engineering, with its main mission of strengthening U.S. manufacturers, is the only automation and control system integrator based in Massachusetts to earn this PartnerNetwork™ designation.

About the Rockwell Software FactoryTalk Suite
FactoryTalk is a suite of software packages that bring disparate data into a unified interface that manufacturing stakeholders can view in real-time to make informed decisions. Pressures, temperatures, flows, counts and other data points connected to programmable controllers are presented in a context that is appropriate and actionable for machine operators, production managers, or corporate executives.

The ability to see performance metrics in real-time enables fast reaction that results in reduced downtime, defects, and scrap while promoting quality, machine utilization, and supply chain efficiency.

"I have worked with RT Engineering on a number of automation projects and was delighted to see them add Manufacturing Intelligence to their catalog of engineering services," said Mike Constantine, Production Engineer, Bradford Industries. "Using FactoryTalk, I can easily track pressure and temperature variances to make sure our emissions stay within EPA compliance thresholds and avoid potential fines."

About SmartFactory
RT Engineering provides FactoryTalk modules along with the technical expertise and any necessary integration support as a branded offering known as SmartFactory. Available software modules include: FactoryTalk VantagePoint, a Rockwell software tool for central maintenance and reporting; FactoryTalk Historian, a tool to capture high-speed, high-volume process data; FactoryTalk Metrics, a tool to measure machine performance (OEE); and FactoryTalk AssetCentre, a tool  to manage electronic production assets such as PLC programs.

"Manufacturing Intelligence is a game-changer that removes sneakernet reporting and guesswork from the productivity equation," said Chad Blair, RT Engineering President. "It's the future of manufacturing and we are hopeful it will lead to more reshoring and preservation of U.S. jobs as costs are reduced and productivity is optimized."
