  • Recycling and refurbishment programs for old equipment have proven increasingly popular for a multitude of reasons.
  • ABB’s buy-back service for previously owned robots provides these benefits, while also allowing those divesting themselves of outdated robots to ensure that their once-valued piece of equipment does not become mere dead weight.
  • After being repurchased and brought to one of ABB’s Remanufacture and Workshop Repair Centers, robots undergo a rigorous inspection, including a 16-hour test of their functionality, before becoming ABB-certified remanufactured equipment and being placed back on the market.
