Is a Refurbished Robot Right for my Business?
Jul 25, 2023
Refurbished robots are repaired, rebuilt, and cleaned in order to re-enter the automation market. They are also called re-manufactured, reconditioned, or rebuilt robots.
You can save a considerable amount of money by purchasing affordable refurbished robots while maintaining the same productivity levels as new ones. However, it’s important to understand proper reconditioning processes and what to look out for.

Avoid buying robots without warranties or with warranties that are less than what is considered standard for completely new robots. At Robots.com, every refurbished robot comes with a full one-year service warranty.
6. Test the robot system
