Extending the Life of Your Robot with Proper Maintenance
Industrial robot systems are bringing new levels of efficiency and productivity to production lines across the globe. They are able to last for many decades as long as they are given proper robotic maintenance. A reliable maintenance routine regularly conducted on your robot will help to provide a long lasting system and bring a very quick ROI.
Automated robotic systems have been working in factories for more than 40 years. Many of them are able to last decades doing the same job, as long as they have proper robotic maintenance periodically. By performing this maintenance to a robot, manufacturers will extend the life of the robot well beyond what anyone would have imagined.
A good robot can last decades with the right maintenance. However, with the wrong maintenance, it can cause interruptions and production shutdowns regularly. A robot has to be properly greased and its gears and joints need to be periodically checked to ensure that nothing is wearing down the joints during production. Any wear in these areas may also indicate stress on the robot from something like lifting payloads that exceed their capacity.
Wires and cabling on robots also need to be checked on a regular basis. Robots move at a rapid pace when performing their applications, which is why they are so attractive to manufacturers. However, this level of speed, along with long working hours, may cause wear and tear to outside wires or cabling. Make sure that wires are not sheering or pulling away from the robot.
Robots.com offers automation solutions from several different robotics companies, including Fanuc, Motoman, ABB, and KUKA. We buy new and refurbished robotic systems from the above companies, and we customize them especially for you. Our refurbished robots go through a thorough inspection and reconditioning process, to make sure that they receive all the proper maintenance before coming to you.
