Used Six-Axis Robots
Six-axis robots have been and remain the most popular robot configuration for robotic automation. Six-axis robots feature an articulated robot structure with six degrees of freedom for a full range of motion. Six-axis robots are able to operate on the X, Y, and Z planes as well as tilt and rotate. This allows them to be able to access an area of space from any angle. Their full range of motion allows them to automate most production related tasks with most offering multi-application capabilities.
The incredible versatility of six-axis robots is why they have become and remain so popular. The rapid growth of robotic automation has created a high demand for six-axis robots. More manufacturers are choosing to automate and are opting for six-axis robots as they provide them with greater flexibility for manufacturing. Due to the high demand for six-axis robots there can be a long turnaround time for new robots. Fortunately, for robot buyers the used robot market has no shortage of second-hand six-axis robots. Short turnaround times is one of the main reasons buyers are opting for used six-axis robots as some new robots can have lead times of up to one year. Purchasing a used six-axis robot allows buyers to automate quickly.
In addition to short lead times, used six-axis robots are much more affordable than new ones. Buyers can save between 40% to 60% of the cost of a new robot when buying used. The affordability of used six-axis robots allows small manufacturers or those without an unlimited amount of capital to be able to automate. The lower cost of a used six-axis robot will allow buyers to realize their ROI more quickly as well.
For those looking to replace a six-axis robot in their current robotic system, buying a used six-axis robot will allow for the same or similar model to serve as a replacement for seamless integration. On top of long lead times, new robots may not be compatible with the pre-existing equipment of your robotic system. Buying a six-axis robot of the same or a comparable model preserves the other pre-existing equipment and avoids having to replace the entire system.
Used six-axis robots can be just as reliable as new ones, if not more. Industrial robots can operate for years, so buying a used robot does not mean you are sacrificing quality.
Robots Done Right sells a variety of used six-axis robots. RDR carries second-hand six-axis robots from the four top robotic manufacturers, FANUC, Yaskawa Motoman, ABB, and KUKA. We also sell used six-axis industrial robots from other robotic manufacturers.
The FANUC Arcmate 120ic and Yaskawa Motoman MA1440 are two used six-axis robots that Robots Done Right frequently has in stock. Both of these robots are used in welding automation. Other popular six-axis industrial robots RDR sells includes the FANUC R-2000ic/165F, ABB 4600-60, and FANUC Lr Mate 200id. Used six-axis robots sold through RDR are tested to verify working condition. If there is a specific six-axis industrial robot you are looking for we can help locate it for you even if we do not have it in stock. In addition to selling used six-axis robots, Robots Done Right also buys them and offers trade-ins.
