Refurbished industrial robot in full operation

Breathe new life into your tired robots and reduce maintenance time, with a complete rebuild.   Our robot rebuild consists of disassembly, cleaning, and validation of comports of both the mechanical and controller units. Replacement of high failure and wear items greatly decreases a chance for a “down production” scenario. Your unit will be reassembled, remastered, and run tested for 20hrs with a full payload, and repainted.  Expert Factory Trained Technicians confirm your robot is returned to NEW OEM performance specifications. Your rebuilt unit is covered with our in-service warranty. 



Our Refurbished Robots Meet or Exceed All OEM Specifications.

Robot Refurbishment begins with a pre-power-up inspection of cables connectors, motor caps, fans, switches/pushbuttons, Axes seals, proper PC board connections, loose items and other physical concerns which could potentially be problematic when power is applied. After which the robot will run a repeatability/durability/backlash test for a minimum of twelve (12) continuous hours with a full payload, through full range of motions.  This is followed by another inspection of mechanical and electrical components and a report of our findings is generated and provided to the customer. 

Note: The repeatability/durability/backlash test will be suspended in the event of a failure to maintain the OEM specifications or robot error. Any necessary repairs are quoted as time and material. The test will be re-run in its entirety (minimum 10 continuous hours) after approved required repairs have been made.
