How much is an M1?

A basic machine is under £4k + vat (this is less than half most comparable robots) which makes it ideal for a lot of applications where it can offer a cost effective solution compared to a bespoke machine, and a huge saving in development time and risk. The M1 is also available with various suites of tools and can be enclosed in a ready to go, CE marked, cell. Prices depend on specification and tooling but we aim to get you up and running fast and affordably. The payback for the M1 is typically measured in weeks.
