Daily Preventative Measures Checklist

Help protect your investments and keep your industrial robots running well into the future by taking a few minutes everyday to inspect your systems and catch potential risks before they turn into repairs.


Make sure that any energy sources are disabled using lockout/tagouts according to your company policy. If motion is needed, do not enter the work envelope until the robot has stopped.


Check air pressure using guages provided by your integrator.

Check cables for wear and tear and not just near the robot. KC Robotics can replace cables over night if needed.

Keep updated on your maintenance manuals and grease and battery replacement.

Inspect the controller cabinet regularly for dust and debris. If the cabinet is dirty, wipe the cabinet carefully with a clean cloth.

When the robot is in production, listen for any abnormal sounds during the first few cycles, this could be a sign of a problem inside the robot itself. For emergency service, call us at 1-800-7ROBOTS (1-800-776-2687).
