The title question is probably one of the first that companies owners and financial directors of both large and small enterprises ask themselves. How much time will it take for the one-off cost that I need to buy and implement when I ask the robot to return?
Investment in a robot is always profitable, only the payback time is longer or shorter. Due to the constantly growing wages and problems with recruitment, nowadays we can talk about an increasingly faster return on investment.
ROI always depends on the specifics of the given application, tasks that have to fill the robot and the number of people it replaces. These people can then be moved to more demanding tasks, and these repetitive and ergonomic little ones will leave mobile robots.
It's worth remembering that MOBOT® AGV robots are solid employees who work 8 to 12 hours on one charge, and use the option of quick battery replacement, almost continuously 24 h a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
What's more, when implementing mobile works, additional, expensive investments in the existing factory layout are not necessary. Therefore, in addition to the cost of the device itself, the initial cost is relatively low compared to solutions such as roller conveyors, elevators or even fork-lift trucks. Mobile robots are unmanned, I do not need the driver to move between designated points.
