Environmentally-Friendly Robots

Sep 11, 2023

A robot can reduce large amounts of waste during the application process, helping to improve the environment. This helps to decrease the pollutants in the air, on the earth, and decrease the need to dispose increased waste. Robots can also be refurbished to like new condition which also demonstrates how one can reuse the materials in a way to benefit the earth.


When peo­ple think about robots, all they tend to think about are these hard, met­al mon­sters that work in fac­to­ries sur­round­ed by more met­al, con­crete and brick. How­ev­er, did you know that even robots are try­ing to become more envi­ron­men­tal­ly-friend­ly? As com­pa­nies con­tin­ue to go green,” robots are lead­ing the way as friends to the envi­ron­ment out­side their con­crete walls.

One of the eas­i­est exam­ples of their friend­li­ness to the envi­ron­ment is a robot’s abil­i­ty to reduce the amount of waste dur­ing their appli­ca­tion process­es. For exam­ple, when a robot is paint­ing an item, it uses less paint to cov­er the work piece than any man­u­al appli­ca­tion would apply. This means that less paint is used, and less is wast­ed. Wast­ed paint, along with oth­er pol­lu­tants have to be prop­er­ly dis­posed of so they do not leak into ground water, and the use of less paint means less paint, which means less of a chance of contamination.

There is also the mar­ket for refur­bished robots, prob­a­bly demon­strat­ing the most envi­ron­men­tal­ly-friend­ly aspect of all. Com­pa­nies like Robots​.com buy refur­bished robots from oth­er com­pa­nies, and they use process­es like dry ice blast­ing to clean the robots, which does not waste water, and then they repair them and get them out to oth­er con­sumers. This abil­i­ty to reuse machin­ery means that the pieces will not end up in a dump some­where. Also, Robots​.com sell robots from com­pa­nies like Fanuc, Motoman, KUKA, Uni­ver­sal Robots, and ABB, uses old robots that are no longer able to work. They are able to reuse pieces of the robot, like the base, to make a base for work cell posi­tion­ers. This type of recy­cling is also friend­ly to the environment.
