Whitepaper: Return on investment of a robot cell
More than just saving on man-hours: automation of CNC machining reduces costs and increases turnover.
Automatic loading of CNC machines has been on the rise for years, especially since the introduction of plug-and-play robotic systems. A lack of skilled workers, a desire to increase flexibility and, in particular, the need to reduce the labour cost factor in the end product are the main reasons why machining companies are automating.
But what are the benefits of such an investment? How do you calculate the Return on Investment (ROI)? Anyone who makes this calculation will discover why it is important to choose the right automation for the right CNC machine. Simply choosing the automation option with the lowest purchase price can be much more expensive in the long run.
