Used Robot

Used Robots for you

Providing the best robotic automation services to the clients has made us popular in America and UK. Our company works with you to make sure that you have the correct robot for your industrial used robots. A team of experts will help you in the selection process on your demand. Therefore, the two main considerations for selecting the industrial used robots will be payload and working envelope.

Robot payload is the weight a robot arm can lift including the weight of the end of arm tooling and the working envelope or work area is the reaching space; therefore there are some factors of a robot’s design (configurations, axes or degrees of freedom) influence its working envelope. When both these features are equally present in industrial used robots, it will give you the maximum benefit.

Follow these strict procedures to certify industrially used robots:

  • Clean, prepare and paint used robots with a 2-part epoxy paint for extra protection from the outside.
  • Check backlash and repeatability of all axes to re-certify to the original specifications.
  • Replace any components that don’t meet the specifications including gear boxes, motors, and cables.
  • Look for any rusted part which is very common in used robots and replace them with a new one.
  • Conduct a full preventative maintenance check, changing grease and controller batteries.
  • Add water resistance and cooling system in the robot to increase its lifeline.
  • Load controller with the latest software revision available for the particular controller and update with a base
  • Software package depending on the client’s specifications or applications.
  • Install the latest and genuine software to avoid malfunctioning.
  • Add any other software options including vision, rail or turntable
  • Perform an eight-hour runoff at full payload to ensure that the robot is working properly

While buying the industrial used robots, you must consider the following points:

  • A robot and its controller
  • A robot and its controller
  • The condition of the internal and external parts of the used robot
  • Replace some components in the controller such as a servo amplifier for better performance
  • Hours of operation for a robot are not necessarily the same as the robot wear and tear.
  • Workload taking capacity of the robot’s arms and internal mechanisms
  • Cooling capacity or heat resistance power of the robot’s control system
  • Another element to consider is how to program the robot, i.e. how smoothly the robot performed in its previous application.
  • It is important to confirm whether or when the robot’s motors/gearboxes were changed, because the motors and gear boxes are typically the most expensive components that will fail on a robot, starting with the wrist (least expensive) to axis one, or base gearbox and drive motor (most expensive and time consuming to replace).
  • In addition, don’t assume that your used robot will automatically come with the End-of-Arm tooling. We can provide and help you to find a suitable tooling according to your specific applications.

A team of experts with years of experience and knowledge about the industrial robot is present in our company to help you know about the latest features and installation procedures.
