Endoline Robotics has launched unique flexible finance options on its robotic palletising range to help manufacturers take the automation plunge.
With a solution to fit all requirements, from rental systems to pay-per-pallet, the ‘Pal’ finance options have been designed to de-risk automation plans and enable manufacturers to spread the cost of their investment.
Based on the increasingly popular principle of Robot-as-a-Service (RaaS) where providers offer robots as a service to an organisation for managing repetitive tasks, Endoline’s Pal financial solutions negates the need for initial capital investment.
As an expensive commodity, many manufacturers, particularly those who work seasonally, have shied away from investing in robotics due to the difficulties in achieving a quick return on investment. However, as the only G7 country with a robot density below the world’s average, the UK is ranked as the 20th most productive country in the world.
Manufacturers now need to take full advantage of the robotic technology available to them and exploit the benefits so as not to fall even further behind.
As a FANUC strategic partner, Endoline Robotics manages the installation of robotic palletising systems within UK manufacturing plants.
Under its new ‘pal’ finance offering, Endoline will offer customers the following:
Go-Pal, an outcome-based contract, with no capital investment, enabling manufacturers to only pay for the number of pallets produced and Rent-Pal, which provides both short- and long-term rental solutions.
Further de-risking the purchasing process, Endoline are also offering a ‘Try Before You Buy’ option, where manufacturers are invited to run product trials before placing an order.
“A good robotic palletising system will optimise productivity, reduce waste and address rising manufacturing labour costs.” Comments Andrew Yates, Managing Director of Endoline Robotics. “For some manufacturers however, cost is still a factor.”
“Our Pal finance solutions, and Try Before You Buy initiative, should empower manufacturers to automate their palletising operations with an investment plan which meets their requirements exactly.”
