Cobot leasing for SME manufacturers
02 December 2021
EUROPE'S LARGEST supplier of collaborative robots, Universal Robots, is launching a new financial leasing scheme with the aim of reducing the costs of introducing automation into the UK and Ireland’s SME manufacturing markets.
The new scheme ensures businesses can deploy collaborative robots now and spread the cost across a 36-month period to address labour shortages, improve output and make their operations more competitive. Companies can benefit from automation now and start repayments in 2022, in many cases funding the monthly payments from already realised productivity gains.
At the end of the leasing agreement, it will be possible for the company to either buy the cobot outright at a reduced cost, upgrade to more recent technology, renew the agreement or simply return the rented cobot.
