Used industrial robots are a great way for companies to automate their applications without the large upfront cost of a new robot. When choosing between a new or used robot, the used robots will generally have a better return on investment over the new models. Many integrators will use used robots in their projects in order to minimize the cost to their customer while not necessarily changing the product they are providing. Many used robot models have the same or similar features as new robots. The cost of a used robot can vary greatly between brand, controller model, and size of the robot. In addition, many second hand robots were limited in use and have a long useful life remaining on them.
