Used Industrial Robot FAQs
What is an industrial robot, and what are its applications?
Industrial robots are programmable machines designed to automate a variety of tasks in industrial settings that can perform repetitive, complex, or even dangerous tasks with speed, precision, and consistency. They are used in many applications including assembly, welding, material handling, packaging, painting, inspection, and more.
What is the used robot machine’s payload capacity and reach?
Understanding both the payload capacity and reach of the industrial robot are vital considerations depending on the specific application and the size and weight of the objects the robot will be handling. Payload capacity is the maximum weight the robot can handle, while reach refers to the maximum distance the robot can extend its arm. Make sure to verify both through the machine specification details or with the used equipment dealer.
Can the used robotic equipment be programmed for different tasks?
Make sure the industrial robot offers the programming capabilities needed for your intended applications. Various methods including teach pendant programming, offline programming, or specific software can be used to program industrial robots for different tasks.
What factors should be considered when buying a used industrial robot?
From age, condition, and programming to safety features, robot type, and cost, there are a variety of factors to consider before purchasing a used industrial robot including:
Condition and Maintenance History:
Review the overall condition of the used industrial robot including inspecting any signs of wear and tear or damage. Inspect mechanical components, electrical systems, as well as control interfaces. Ask the used equipment dealer if there is documentation regarding the maintenance history as this can give you an idea of past repairs, replacements, and how well-maintained the industrial robot equipment is, but also an idea of the remaining lifespan if it has been maintained over the years.
Age and Usage:
Verify the age of the industrial robotic equipment and inquire about previous usage and applications. Used industrial robots with low hours of operation can offer better reliability and longevity.
Assess the specific tasks and processes that the robot will be performing. Consider factors such as payload capacity, reach, precision, speed, and environmental conditions.
Industrial Robot Type:
Used to automate tasks, enhance productivity, and improve efficiency, used industrial robots each have their own capabilities and applications. Determining the type of robotic equipment that’s right for you will depend on the specific tasks, requirements, and production processes in your industry. Types of used industrial robots include:
- Robotic Arms
- Cartesian Robots (Gantry Robots)
- SCARA Robots
- Delta Robots
- Collaborative Robots (Cobots)
- Welding Robots
- Painting Robots
- Material Handling Robots
- Inspection and Quality Control Robots
- Mobile Robots
- CNC Machine Tending Robots
Compatibility & Integration:
With your production line or machinery in mind, ensure the used robotic equipment not only integrates within your existing production line and is compatible with control systems, programming languages, peripherals, and communication protocols. While some used robotic machines offer intuitive integration options and interfaces that can make integration into your production line seamless, you’ll want to always verify with the used equipment dealer what the integration process and requirements are.
To ensure operator safety and compliance with safety standards, verify the used industrial robot meets safety standards and regulations by confirming what safety features are included such as collision detection, emergency stop buttons, safety guarding, and safety monitoring systems.
Programming and Ease of Use:
Make sure the industrial robotic equipment’s software and programming capabilities are compatible with your systems or preferred programming languages. Verify with the used equipment dealer whether the software license or programming tools are available or if they can be obtained.
Future Expansions or Upgrades:
Before purchasing, consider future expansions or upgrades and whether the robot can accommodate those. Look at the industrial robot’s machine specifications as well as verifying with the used equipment dealer the robot’s capabilities including payload capacity or reach to see if it can be expanded. Find out if additional accessories or functionalities can be added to the used robot in the future and the potential costs to add those.
Cost and Return on Investment:
When considering the cost of the used industrial robot, there are a number of factors to look at including manufacturer and model, age and condition, capabilities, features and software. Look at potential future costs including maintenance and transportation costs after purchasing. Consider increased productivity, improved product quality, labor savings, and selling the industrial robot to a used equipment dealer in the future when looking at your potential return on investment.
Before purchasing, speak with the used equipment dealer to schedule an inspection of the used industrial robot machine. This will allow you to not only review the machine’s condition, but also observe the performance and the robot’s capabilities to make sure that it meets all of your requirements.
