Once the used robot passes through these refurbish and rebuild stages it is considered ready for integration and resale. RobotWorx' used robots provide an affordable, reliable, and full warranty option for customers.
How We Refurbish Robots:
The first step to refurbish a used robot is a thorough cleaning. We clean each robot with a portable dry ice machine. This approach is not only environmentally safe it is faster than more traditional cleaning methods. Next, the entire unit receives a more detailed cleaning with wire brushes, cloths, and some chemical cleaning agents. This is where we pay special attention to refurbishing the interior of the control cabinet. Later, following any testing and rebuild processing, the robot and controller receive a fresh coat of paint.
The next steps call for more investigative work and routine replacement. Lubricants in the arm are flushed out and exchanged with new grease. Fans within the controller are tested. Batteries are replaced and electronic components (amps, boards, servo motors, wire harness) inspected, tested, and replaced if necessary.
Finally, we test functionality and repeatability. Any adjustments to axes or internal communications take place at this point.
