Let’s face it, it’s becoming harder everyday to fill manufacturing jobs. According to a Manufacturing Institute/Deloitte report, nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs likely need to be filled over the next decade. The skills gap is expected to result in 2 million of those jobs going unfilled. Do you have processes where you have a high risk of repetitive stress injury? Where staff is difficult to retain or assign? Those are the best places to start with automation.
The ROI of a collaborative robot cell is 6 months on average and rarely takes over a year. Contrary to traditional industrial robot cells, collaborative robot cells equipped with our Plug + Play Components can be integrated by your team, with the help of our coaches. This reduces integration costs and delays to get to production.
Some manufacturers choose collaborative robot cells because of their very small footprint. Other like the ease of programming. All manufacturers like the low integration costs. What makes sense for you?
