Robot Refurbishment

Robot Refurbishment

By refurbishing out-of-service robots, our service engineers are able to offer an affordable approach to integrating robots into automation processes. Engineers inspect, refurbish, and test the robot for functionality and utility. Testing lasts a minimum of four hours (with maximum payload) to check backlash, repeat-ability, and productivity in a simulated production environment.

Our thorough inspection process includes:
  • Maintenance issues
  • Component wear
  • Functionality
  • Repeat-ability
  • System fault recovery
  • Aesthetics
  • Missing components
  • Voltage
  • Functionality
  • Software

Following the inspection process, our team will document their findings and provide a comprehensive repair quote for the customer to review and approve. Upon approval of the quote, our service engineers will get to work refurbishing the robot. This process may take some time depending on the level of service required. Once the refurbish process is complete, rigorous testing of the robot is performed to ensure the safety of the unit and that it is fully operational.  

Our testing process typically includes:
  • Safely power-up the robot and controller
  • Perform repeat-ability test
  • Inspect robot components 
  • Backlash observation on each axis

  • Preventive Maintenance and Service
  • Emergency Down Support
  • PLC and Controls Support
