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.
