Grease allows industrial robotic arms to function properly, smoothly, and withstand wear. Replacing robot grease is an important step in RobotWorx' total reconditioning process. Depending on the robot model, routine robot maintenance requires working with grease.
Here are the facts on this messy but extremely important robot ingredient...
Greasing Robots with Planetary Gear Reduction Units
Different greases are used for different mechanical components and different maintenance tasks.
Robots with planetary gear reduction units require grease replenishment every year. This process involves pumping the old grease out of the gear by inputting new grease into the unit. Planetary gear reduction units also require re-greasing when they are replaced.
Greasing Robots with Harmonic Drives
Robots with harmonic drives rarely require grease replacement. When they do need regreasing (perhaps when a motor is replaced), a different, thick grease is used.
