Since the start of 2018, we also supply reconditioned repairs as well as exchange and replacement parts for handheld robot control panels from the IRC5, IRC5P, S4, S4+, S4C+, S4P and S4P+ product lines manufactured by ABB. During the repair process, we ensure that components that are better than the manufacturer's are installed in addition to the manufacturer's original parts. As a preventative measure we also replace any components that are subject to ageing or use-related wear.
The manufacturer's original parts are used when repairing Flex pendants from the IRC5 product line, while improved components are also used for the relevant Teach pendant units of the S4 product line. Displays with a higher contrast ratio and a lower power consumption are used in Teach pendant units, for example. The key foils that we use feel better than the originals and the Teach pendant units are equipped with a stronger housing at the same time. These improvements are implemented as part of our general reconditioned repairs and, of course, always adhere to the requirements of the Machinery Directive.
In addition to using components approved by the manufacturer or legislator, we test the reconditioned ABB handheld control panels with original IRB ABB robots under conditions that correspond to the actual working environment. We therefore also provide an 18-month warranty on the complete ABB handheld control panel.
