Manufacturers recommend robot preventative maintenance because of their heavy usage and the harsh environments they operate within. Our expert field service teams employ robotic technicians and engineers equipped to maintain your industrial robots on-site. Download Servo Motor PM Checklist
The Industry Norm
Robot PM is recommended every so often to avoid more serious failures later in the product life-cycle. Heavy usage and harsh operating conditions have a negative impact on all types of robot manipulators and controllers – from the 35 kg dispensing robots all the way up to the 2800 kg part transfer robots. Industrial robot manufacturers (FANUC, ABB, Yaskawa Motoman, KUKA, Kawasaki, etc.) recommend following a predetermined checklist to ensure proper mechanical and electronic functioning. The checklist – which is based on operating hours or a preset schedule – provide technicians with an outline on what must be inspected and taken care of. For example, the popular Fanuc R-2000iA series of robots require grease replacement every 3 years or 11,520 hours.
Beyond the Checklist
ICR preventive maintenance plans include OEM recommended maintenance, plus additional checks to keep your equipment operating with maximum efficiency. Additional inspection areas and times will be adjusted according to the robots working conditions and environment. The following benefits are provided through ICR’s robot preventative maintenance program and completed per OEM specifications. All programs include the following: purging & replacing of lubricants, reducers, and gearboxes; verification of zero position mastering; mechanical wear & damage inspection; and battery replacement.
Take preventive measures to maximize efficiencies and prolong the life-cycle of your equipment with ICR’s robot preventative maintenance program. Service is available regionally in the United States and Canada with select service options in Mexico and South Africa. Global Locations
