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.

6 Tips for Buy­ing a Refur­bished Robot

1. Review qual­i­ty standards

Robots​.com main­tains high stan­dards when pur­chas­ing refur­bished robot­ic equip­ment. We ensure that the robot sys­tems have been main­tained at high per­for­mance lev­els and oper­at­ed in clean fac­to­ry and man­u­fac­tur­ing envi­ron­ments where there is mechan­i­cal part upkeep. All robots pur­chased from us comes with a one year in ser­vice war­ran­ty and com­pli­men­ta­ry tech support.

2. Avoid hid­den costs

Is the robot you are con­sid­er­ing com­plete­ly refur­bished? Repair costs can erase any dis­count advan­tage to pur­chas­ing used. When you buy from Robots​.com, you do not have to wor­ry about these finan­cial risks by per­form­ing a com­plete and thor­ough recon­di­tion­ing process.

You can rely on our work­man­ship and rest assured with our full war­ran­ty and com­pli­men­ta­ry cus­tomer support.

3. Choose well-known brands

When pur­chas­ing refur­bished robots, it is wise to choose major robot­ic man­u­fac­tur­ers. Well-known prod­ucts are eas­i­er to work with because they are nor­mal­ly high­er qual­i­ty. Robots​.com is a resource for top brand robot­ic equip­ment from Fanuc, Motoman, KUKA, and ABB robots.

4. Con­sid­er refur­bish­ment policies

Every robot­ics com­pa­ny has a dif­fer­ent set of refur­bish­ment poli­cies and guide­lines. After final inspec­tion, a robot­ic sys­tem is out­fit­ted with a full war­ran­ty. Our refur­bished robot­ic sys­tems are ful­ly func­tion­al and returned to like-new con­di­tion. We guar­an­tee an excel­lent prod­uct, cus­tomer sup­port, and com­pli­men­ta­ry tech support.

5. Require a warranty

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

It is wise to give the robot a thor­ough test run at the time it is received to ensure there are not any obvi­ous prob­lems. It is impor­tant to make sure your refur­bished robot provider tests the robot under load for repeata­bil­i­ty and sus­tain­abil­i­ty to ensure your robot is ready to work.
