Industrial Robots

Trend Robotics, extremely pricy parts. This guy keeps bothering me to add a link here and won't take "NO" for an answer. He even demanded that I remove this entire section if I wouldn't add his link. So, if you want to buy a $3,000 teach pendant, this is the place for you.

Therefore, we don't accept links to industrial robot sellers, period.
