If you’re think­ing about automat­ing a process in your man­u­fac­tur­ing line, but you just aren’t quite sure if you can afford the ini­tial cost of a new robot, we have a great solu­tion: Refur­bished Robots! The stick­er shock when shop­ping for a new robot can be scary, but know­ing there is anoth­er option that is eas­i­er on your wal­let reduces the fear of automation. 


So what exact­ly is a refur­bished robot? 

A refur­bished robot, much like a used car, is a machine with a past. It has been pre­vi­ous­ly used by anoth­er com­pa­ny, and when it comes to a robot­ics inte­gra­tor, it needs some ten­der lov­ing care. How­ev­er, unlike a used car, a refur­bished robot can eas­i­ly be restored. When prop­er­ly refur­bished, a robot­’s life is extend­ed to a com­pa­ra­ble lifes­pan of a new robot. It can then be re-inte­grat­ed into the man­u­fac­tur­ing world per­form­ing the same, or dif­fer­ent, task as before. 

Refur­bished robots should under­go thor­ough inspec­tions, be stripped down and prop­er­ly cleaned, worn or faulty parts replaced, grease replaced, wiring and cables checked, and final­ly test­ed and repainted. 

How do you trust the qual­i­ty of refurbishment? 

Not every refur­bish­er han­dles refur­bish­ment the same. It is impor­tant to under­stand what is com­plet­ed through­out the process and know what mea­sures that com­pa­ny takes to ensure qual­i­ty is preserved. 

A good way to val­i­date a refur­bish­ing com­pa­ny’s prod­uct and ser­vices is to check for cer­ti­fi­ca­tions. Anoth­er great way to mea­sure qual­i­ty and build trust is the amount of expe­ri­ence, past cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion, and their abil­i­ty to evolve over time. 

How much mon­ey can you save?

The dif­fer­ence in price alone is enough to sway many cus­tomers to buy­ing a refur­bished robot­ic option. Cus­tomers can save 30 – 40% or more when choos­ing a refur­bished option. This can mean a lot for a small­er com­pa­ny that doesn’t get the ben­e­fit of large vol­ume dis­counts. They can buy a refur­bished robot­ic sys­tem at a frac­tion of the cost of buy­ing new and remain com­pet­i­tive in their mar­ket. Check out our ROI cal­cu­la­tor to see how much you can save.
