Robotic Welding System Payback Calculator

If you have a welding process that could benefit from robotics, the first thing to discover is whether a system investment will meet your ROI and performance goals.

Yaskawa Motoman has developed a payback calculator to demonstrate the potential financial gains of a robotic arc welding system over your target payback period. This can be estimated before specing a system, as a budgetary guideline and to establish goals & expectations prior to system design.

Robotic system value calculations are affected by these inputs you provide:

  • Desired system payback period
  • Staffing needs before and after automation
  • Additional throughput gains required in a system
  • Other savings through reduced materials costs, quality improvement, etc.
