I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. Hugs to you.
You should not introduce another Robo to the one you currently have. They should only be kept together I’d they are brother and brother or sister and sister. Even if they are related, they can still fight at any time and they would need separating immediately.

So sorry your robo died. Definitely leave the other one alone. Firstly you can't introduce unrelated robos - it would lead to bullying or fighting. Also if the other one died of some disease it would be best to wait 3 weeks or so before getting any more hamsters as a kind of quarantine. Or did one kill the other one? That is very sad if that happened. It is very common for pairs to fall out and start fighting and they should always be separated if that happens or they can fight to the death.

The one you have now will be absolutely fine on his own. I have a single robo that lives on his own.

If you think about getting a pair again in the future - then cage set up is important to help prevent them falling out - ie no levels (one will get territorial over the level), two of everything - houses, wheels, food bowls, water bottles - so they can have one each and don't have to fight over anything (even though they often share they have the option to have their own). Sorry if you already know all that.

Hi and welcome to HC. I am truly sorry about your darling robo's passing to the bridge. My heart goes out to you during this very sad time. Huge hugs to you.

As other members have posted, you shouldn't introduce a new robo to your current one. It could be extremely dangerous and potentially deadly for one or both of them. Your current one will be happily thriving on his own.
