Collaborative Robot = Fast Payback

There are several factors that are limiting companies from getting into automation. However, the primary one is often money. In fact, you need to justify your investment in automation by an increase in production rate or in quality. The best way to calculate this payback is to use Return On Investment (ROI). This metric has been use by several robot manufacturers to prove how fast a robot can be paid back. At some point I wondered: ''Why do collaborative robots have a faster payback or ROI than other robots''? Well let's find out.
