Ron Potter, our recently retired Director of Robotics, developed a Return on Investment Calculator for robot applications. The Robotic Industries Association (now A3 Robotics) implemented an online version of Ron’s calculator. The tool allows a customer to enter the initial system cost, labor costs, labor savings, and productivity gains.
The calculator will show the ROI break-even point and the positive cash flow projected over 15 years of use.
