Benefits of Purchasing Used Robots
While robotic equipment is an excellent investment, sometimes it can be expensive. A great way to acquire a reliable system without putting out as large a sum of money is by investing in a used robot system. On average, used robots cost about half as much as a comparable new model. This is because suppliers already have a canvas on which to work and do not have to put out the same expenses for materials and forming processes.
Purchasing a reconditioned robot is a sensible choice for any company, especially small companies with smaller budgets or smaller output requirements. Plus, when you purchase a used robot, you are reducing your carbon footprint by recycling materials like steel and reducing the use of waste-producing forming processes. All around, used robots are a great way to go!
Benefits of Finding the Right Used Robot Supplier
Reliable used robot suppliers, such as those listed on this page, will put a used robot through a variety of reconditioning processes and performance tests. They also provide certification showing that the robot has been reconditioned and/or that it meets the requirements of standard organizations.
Typical standard organization certifications suppliers can offer include:
- ISO (International Standards Organization)
- ANSI (American National Standards Institute)
- IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers)
- OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration)
Many manufacturers also offer warranties. After a manufacturer has restored the robot to like-new condition, they can then customize them for your application.
