Robotic Cost & Robot Cell Design

How much do industrial robots cost? Let’s take the first step together and help you with your robotic cost evaluation. We’re here every step of the way.

Even though we provide an estimate of the robot cost, it is important to work with an experienced and reputable robotics company that can assess your specific needs and provide you with a comprehensive estimate that includes all associated costs.  In summary, we can say with confidence that the robotics industry is growing, and companies need to consider automation in their budget. See below what the experts say. 

The year 2023 will be characterized by a slowdown of the global economic growth. Robot installations in 2023 are not expected to follow this pattern. There is no indication that the overall long-term growth trend will come to an end soon: rather the contrary will be the case. The mark of 600,000 units installed per year worldwide is expected to be reached in 2024. For more information, see the summary of Robotics 2023 by the International Federation of Robotics (IFR.).

Robotic costs can vary significantly depending on several factors such as size, payload capacity, reach, complexity, and the specific tasks for which they are designed. Additionally, the brand, model, and additional features or customization options can also affect the price. Moreover, other important costs associated with robotic cells include the type of application, the required level of customization, and the specific features and capabilities of the system.

Based on statistics, industrial robots can range in price from tens of thousands of pounds to several hundred thousand pounds. Smaller robots with lower payload capacities and simple capabilities tend to be less expensive, while larger, more advanced robots with higher payload capacities and complex functionalities are usually more costly. Nevertheless, if your budget is tight, consider buying a reconditioned robot. You can find these robots for half the price of new robots.  Moreover,  they have a lifespan of up to 20 years.

Therefore, to provide you with a more accurate estimate, it would be helpful to discuss your specific needs and requirements. This discussion would allow us to determine the best solution for your particular application and provide you with a more detailed breakdown of the system’s associated costs.

Our ROI robot sysems calculator gives you an estimate of the top three more common robot cells including Milling robot, welding robot and palletising robot cells.

How can we reduce the costs when purchasing a robotic cell design?

Reducing costs when purchasing a robotic cell design involves careful planning, optimisation, and strategic decision-making. Here are some strategies to consider:

  • Integration: Work with experienced integrators who can streamline the implementation process and minimise labor costs. They can also help optimise the robotic cell layout for maximum efficiency.

  • Training & Continuos Improvement: Invest in thorough operator and maintenance personnel training to minimise downtime and costly mistakes. Foster a culture of steady improvement to eliminate inefficiencies and reduce expenses.

  • Lifecycle Cost Analysis: Consider the total cost of ownership over the lifespan of the robotic cell, including maintenance, energy consumption, and downtime. Sometimes a higher upfront cost for a more reliable system can result in lower overall expenses.

  • Reuse Existing Components: Whenever possible, reuse existing components or equipment to minimise the need for new purchases. This can include repurposing machinery, conveyors, or other infrastructure within the robotic cell design.

  • Used or Refurbished Robot: Explore the option of purchasing used or refurbished robots, which can be significantly cheaper than buying new. However, ensure that the equipment is in good condition and meets your requirements.

By incorporating these strategies into the purchasing process, you can effectively reduce costs while still achieving a high-quality robotic cell design that meets your needs.

  • Define Clear Requirements: Clearly define your requirements and objectives for the robotic cell design. This will help avoid unnecessary features or over-engineering, saving costs without sacrificing functionality.

  • Modular Design: Choose a modular robotic cell design that allows for easy upgrades and modifications in the future. This can help avoid the need for complete replacements and reduce long-term costs.

  • Design Optimisation: Work closely with robotics engineers and designers to optimise the design for cost-effectiveness. This may involve simplifying the design, reducing the number of components, or using standardised parts.

  • Simulation and Prototyping: Use simulation tools and prototyping techniques to validate the design before full-scale production. This can help identify potential issues early on, reducing costly revisions later in the process.
