Building a work cell with refurbished robots

Jan 20, 2014 is proud to offer a wide range of refurbished robots from many different manufacturers. When you are ready for integration, look no further than the experts at for advice. When building a workcell with a refurbished robot ,you will need to consider your budget, production line layout, and the application that will need to be accomplished.


There are many dif­fer­ent steps when you are build­ing a work cell for your pro­duc­tion line. You have to con­sid­er the bud­get, the lay­out, the appli­ca­tion you need to per­form and the types of machin­ery that you are going to use, as well as fig­ur­ing out what fea­tures you may pur­chase to enhance the effec­tive­ness of that machin­ery for your per­son­al application.

When con­sid­er­ing the bud­get, ask your­self whether you want to use new or refur­bished robots in the con­struc­tion of your work cell. While new robots may be shiny and have all the lat­est fea­tures, refur­bished robots rou­tine­ly work just as well as new for half the price. So, if your com­pa­ny doesn’t have a large bud­get for work cell automa­tion, this may be a key sell­ing point for upper man­age­ment when get­ting the bud­get finalized.

Once you have decid­ed what your refur­bished robot needs to do, you also need to be ready to recon­sid­er your entire pro­duc­tion line. You need to look at the pro­duc­tion process as it is per­formed by hand, and then trans­late that into how it will be per­formed by a robot. If you can suc­cess­ful­ly do that (even if it means com­plete­ly flip­ping the assem­bly line around), you will gain more speed advan­tages from your system.

Work cell build­ing is com­plex, and the eas­i­est step is con­tact­ing a robot­ics inte­gra­tor like Robots​.com. Robots​.com is a robot­ics inte­gra­tor for sev­er­al dif­fer­ent robot­ics com­pa­nies, includ­ing ABB, KUKA, Motoman, Uni­ver­sal Robots, and Fanuc.
