• ABB remanufactures robots, controllers and manipulators, refurbishing them to give them a second life

• Remanufactured robots help customers unlock new functionalities and advanced services while reducing maintenance costs and maximizing return on investment

• Sourcing unused and discontinued robots for remanufacturing ensures older ro-bots avoid being scrapped when their lifetime could be extended

As sustainability continues to grow in importance

globally, ABB is committed to help create more environmentally friendly manufacturing facilities across the world. Remanufacturing enables existing robot users to sell inactive or lega-cy robots to ABB with an attractive buy back service, rather than scrapping them or leaving them unused in a corner of the factory. Over the last 25 years, thousands of robots have been

refurbished and upgraded by ABB’s remanufactured robot teams, to give them a second life. As well as previously owned robots, peripheral equipment such as controllers and manipula-tors are refurbished to “like-new” conditions at one of ABB’s Global Remanufacture & Workshop Repair Centers.

Before being labelled as an ABB-certified

remanufactured robot, every second-hand unit undergoes rigorous checks, including a detailed inspection and a minimum 16-hour functioning test. Each remanufactured robot comes with a two-year warranty and buyers of refurbished equipment enjoy the same level of support from local service teams, including installation and training, as they would with the purchase of a new ABB robot. “Unlike third-party refurbishes who only fix faulty

parts, we completely remanufacture our robots using original ABB design plans, specifications and dimensional data. This guarantees that the robots offer the same levels of quality, per-formance, durability and safety as a new ABB robot,” said Jan Borsky, Sales Manager of ABB’s Global Remanufacture & Workshop Repair Centers. “We have one of the largest inventories of pre-owned and reconditioned robots across the world, with 400 robots of various types in stock for sale, and currently the demand for second life robots is so high that we have more than one robot leaving our Ostrava facility every working day.”
