Over the last 30 years, we’ve given thousands of our robots a second life through our global program of remanufacturing and upgrades. We have remanufactured over 12,000 robots globally.
Our six Global Remanufacture & Workshop Repair Centers in Germany, Czech Republic, the US, Brazil, Vietnam and China bring robots into the worldwide circular economy. Teams of experts take in previously owned robots, as well as peripheral equipment such as controllers and manipulators, and refurbish them to “like-new” conditions, ready to benefit new customers.
Remanufacturing enables existing robot users to sell inactive or legacy robots back to ABB with an attractive buy back service, rather than scrapping them or leaving them unused in a corner of the factory.
