Automating Your
Welding Operation

section 2 of 3: Roi considerations


Many companies consider labor reduction alone in their ROI calculations. Most automation systems are not equal, so comparing vendors can be difficult. In other words, considering price alone is generally not the best approach.

Consider these contributing factors to ROI:

  • Injury reduction

  • Quality improvement

  • Revenue per square foot density

  • Capacity increase

  • Scrap reduction

  • Rework reduction

  • Sustainability

  • Ongoing maintenance cost

  • Improvement in employee perception of their factory

  • Improvement in customer perception of your factory
