RobotWorx Debunks Myths Surrounding the Used Industrial Robot

All too often companies are reluctant to consider used industrial robots as a viable automation option, despite their lower cost. Common misconceptions of used robots paint them as slow, finicky, and unsupported. However, not every used robot is created equal. Robotics integrator RobotWorx debunks the used robot myths, offering its customers reliable, high-performance, and fully warrantied used robots.

"At RobotWorx we're focused on bringing automation within reach and changing the way used robots are perceived. We take robot reconditioning and customer support very seriously," RobotWorx President Jarrod Bichon said. "Hopefully more and more companies will give used robots a chance and take advantage of the excellent performance and affordability they offer."

The secret behind RobotWorx' top quality used robots is attention to detail. Prior to reconditioning, the acquisitions team is careful to select only robots with low hours and minimal wear. Previous work environments and applications are also considered.

Once RobotWorx' team is sure they have a solid product, the real work begins. The company has developed a thorough method to return used robots to like-new condition inside and out. Each used robotic system (manipulator, controller, and teach pendant) is put through a rigorous 168-point inspection and reconditioning process. All components are thoroughly cleaned, tested, and replaced if need be. Finally, the entire system receives a fresh coat of paint.

According to Bichon, customers can expect to pay 40-50% less for used robots. This makes for an even greater return on investment (ROI). Contrary to popular belief, used robots do not have to be a risky choice. Integrators such as RobotWorx have perfected the art of reconditioning and they stand by their products. Each of RobotWorx' used robots is protected with a complete warranty.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
