Every year, RobotWorx receives many requests for robot prices from customers, students and researchers. While specific prices depend on a number of factors, we are able to offer estimated answers to the most common robot cost questions.
How Much Do New Robots Cost?
Complete with controllers and teach pendants, new industrial robotics cost from $50,000 to $80,000. Once application-specific peripherals are added, the robot system costs anywhere from $100,000 to $150,000.
How Much Do Used Robots Cost?
Reconditioned robots are a less expensive option. Typically, used robots cost half as much as new robots. Used robot prices can range between an estimated $25,000 and $40,000, and systems with application components cost between $50,000 and $75,000.
Does Robot Price Depend on Manufacturer?
Surprisingly enough, there is little variation in robot price based on manufacturers. Similarly sized robots offer similar functionality and repeatability and cost roughly the same amount.
What is the Greatest Price Determining Factor?
Robotic price is directly related to the application being performed. To choose the right robot model, the company has to consider work space requirements, reach and payload limits, as well as product needs. Application determines EOAT, peripherals, safety components, etc., all of which impact the total cost considerably. You can also use our return-on-investment robot calculator to determine how much a robot can save you.
