Debunking 5 Myths About Buying A Used Robot
Nov 2, 2017
Robots.com takes pride in their refurbishment process, debunking myths and bringing refurbished robots back to life. A reconditioned robot or robotic system is an excellent way to save money while also providing the same productivity. Robots.com experts put all of their robots through intense refurbishment process and do numerous tests before sending the robot back to market.
Myth 1: Used robots are outdated, slow and less accurate than newer models.
Industrial Robots have changed very little in the past 10 years. For the majority of industrial applications, the speed and accuracy of a refurbished robot is very similar to a new model. When it comes to life span, there is little difference between new and old robots. A fully reconditioned robot has a life of 8 – 12 years, while a new robot typically lasts 10 – 15 years.
Myth 2: Used robots are more difficult to program.
Programming has not changed dramatically during the last decade. Despite the introduction of new software and Windows interfacing, the tools and process remain the same. Programmers still use the teach pendant and robot to chart points and set up an application. Old and new robots are equally user-friendly and easy to program.
Myth 3: Parts are hard to find for refurbished robots.
Parts for refurbished robots are more readily available than parts for new robots. Many refurbished robotic parts have been on the market for more than 35 years. When you buy refurbished, you can expect access to a wide selection of high-quality parts and affordable prices. We have a large inventory of parts, to include many older robot model parts.
Myth 4: Warranties are not available for refurbished robots.
Robots.com offers a complete warranty for both new and our reconditioned refurbished robots. This full warranty extends to all parts and service. This gives you the same coverage whether you buy a new or refurbished robot system.
Myth 5: A refurbished robot’s work history influences its performance.
Robots.com only purchases the highest quality refurbished robots. The robots we select have few work hours. Many are surplus robots. Plus, the refurbished robots are fully reconditioned with a comprehensive inspection process. Worn parts are replaced and the systems are re-greased. Every robot passes through complete performance testing. Each one is repainted and cleaned. This process results in a fully reliable, fine-tuned robot.
