Robot Retrofit

We refurbish industrial robots, which means no need to change robot hardware, wiring, vision system, or end effector. RSI will simply replace the old controls box with a modern one.

What Makes a Retrofit Candidate?

Controls Box Not Functional

Your robot arm is in great condition but parts in the controls box are either bad, obsolete and you are having difficulty finding replacement parts.

Lack of Manufacturer Support

The robot’s manufacturer does not support the robot’s arm or control box anymore and does not offer an upgrade controls package.


Getting a new robot would involve an expensive certification process due to work environment.

Difficulty Teaching Your Robot

Your robot needs to re-taught for various tasks using antiquated software, which requires a robot programmer, making the process time consuming and expensive.

Multiple Robots Difficulty

You already have an old robot and are in need of new robot but would like a single HMI/UI for all robots to make it easier to train operator and simplify maintenance.

Lack of Software Features

Your robot is in great condition but due to the antiquated controls box, your software lacks features that would simplify tasks or programming.

Need of Machine Linkage

You want your robot to tie into other machines or conveyor systems at your facility to create seamless automation process.

Accuracy Deficiency

Your robot hardware specs indicate capability of achieving high performance but your robot controller software is not able to perform to the expected level.
