Frequently Asked Questions
If you want to run an ROI calculation but don’t have a quote price for your current project on hand, we’d be happy to give you one (no commitment required!). Just email us here or chat with us by clicking on the icon in the bottom righthand corner of the screen. Simply describe your project or concept and we will give you an idea of what such a project might cost, which robots and parts would be needed, and how feasible it is.
Total System Cost is the quoted cost for the purchase, installation, and programming of the automation solution, as well as any included initial training costs for operators. This is not cost per robot. It is the total project cost. The number of robots is important as it is used in the calculation of electricity costs.
Electricity costs are calculated by taking the average cost of electricity in Germany (0.45€ KWh) and multiplying it by the average energy consumption of a collaborative robot. For smaller robots (think laboratory robots) consumption could be quite a bit lower and for palletizing robots a bit higher. Get in touch if you would like a detailed, application-specific estimate of power consumption.
This is a generalized estimate based on our experience with commonly automated processes. The goal of the estimate is to help you get an idea of how much you could be saving by automating a given task. That is to say that the number the calculator generates is not 100% exact, but it should give you a good idea of whether or not a proposed solution makes sense. The biggest source of variance is electricity price and consumption. These factors depend largely on the exact robot model you choose and your location.
If you would like a more exact estimate, we’d be happy to provide you one (for free!). We’d need the above information and information regarding which robots and tools you intend to use, as well as local electricity costs, etc. Email us here or get in touch by clicking the chat icon in the bottom righthand corner and we’d be more than happy to give you a more in-depth ROI estimate.
