The benefits of used manufacturing robots

Feb 25, 2014

Used foundry manufacturing robots are a more affordable option for those wishing to integrate one on their production line. Despite being reconditioned, these robots help to improve the productivity and safety levels on the manufacturing line.


Man­u­fac­tur­ing robots have been in ser­vice for over three decades now –weld­ing parts and han­dling and remov­ing mate­ri­als. These man­u­fac­tur­ing robot­ics are ben­e­fi­cial in sev­er­al dif­fer­ent indus­tries, includ­ing the auto­mo­tive, aero­space, defense, elec­tron­ics and con­sumer goods indus­tries. How­ev­er, there are some man­u­fac­tur­ing robots that have uses out­side of the typ­i­cal uses. These robots are spe­cial­ly designed and coat­ed to work in spe­cif­ic conditions.

Used foundry man­u­fac­tur­ing robot­ic sys­tems are engi­neered with spe­cial coat­ings and parts that are able to work well in high heat sit­u­a­tions, while freez­er man­u­fac­tur­ing robots are able to work in areas that need to stay at very low tem­per­a­tures. While these refur­bished robot man­u­fac­tur­ing sys­tems help to improve the pro­duc­tiv­i­ty of their lines, they also act to improve the safe­ty lev­els of the pro­duc­tion lines by keep­ing human work­ers out of these harsh environments.

Anoth­er used man­u­fac­tur­ing robot­ics group that may often get over­looked is the many dif­fer­ent used clean­room robots. These refur­bished robot­ic man­u­fac­tur­ers are able to work in lab­o­ra­to­ries that require low lev­els of par­ti­cles in the air. They are typ­i­cal­ly made to be dust-free and have spe­cial belts that do not release large amounts of par­ti­cles dur­ing oper­a­tion. Used clean­room man­u­fac­tur­ing robot­ic sys­tems are also put to use in the elec­tron­ics indus­try, espe­cial­ly when putting togeth­er moth­er­boards or oth­er small part man­u­fac­tur­ing where hand con­t­a­m­i­na­tion could cause issues with the parts.

Of course, as with all man­u­fac­tur­ing robots, used mod­els have the same over­all ben­e­fits of speed and accu­ra­cy, which are impor­tant when try­ing to improve the accu­ra­cy of any pro­duc­tion line. But, used man­u­fac­tur­ing robots can do it for half the price of new­er models.

Robots​.com pro­vides robots from sev­er­al dif­fer­ent com­pa­nies, includ­ing Fanuc, Motoman, KUKA, Uni­ver­sal Robots, and ABB, have sev­er­al hun­dred used man­u­fac­tur­ing robot mod­els avail­able for cus­tomiza­tion and pur­chase. Our staff will work with you to find you the right refur­bished robot and sys­tem for your bud­get and facility.
