HOW MUCH DO INDUSTRIAL ROBOTS COST?
Industrial robots are an investment that can pay off quickly. elliTek's Automation Experts aren't here to just sell robots. We stay in communication with our customers throughout the entire process from sales, training, commissioning, support, and beyond.
New industrial robots with controllers and teach pendants can cost anywhere from $50,000 to $150,000. The cost of a robotic system that is application-specific can cost $100,000 to $200,000. The price of robots doesn't fluctuate too much based on the manufacturer. If the robots are comparable in size, they typically cost about the same amount and offer similar functionality and repeatability.
The application to be performed has a direct impact on the cost of a robotic system. The application governs the end-of-arm-tooling (EOAT), the peripherals, and the safety mechanisms.
To choose the right robot for your application, our automation experts suggest that you take into consideration the workspace requirements, the reach and payload limits, and the product needs. elliTek's automation experts share more insight on selecting the right robot here.
It's recommended that you have a clear understanding of the scope of your robotic system during the research phase. Some things to consider are your current costs for the number of employees per shift, the number of shifts per day, your employee(s) yearly cost, downtime costs, and scrap parts costs. Industrial robots have a quick return on investment (ROI) and can typically pay for themselves within a year.
