WMH Robotics offer a unique machine tending solution by combining off the shelf components to give you advanced systems for a fraction of the cost!

By enabling self-deployment we dramatically reduce cost (by up to 60%) and reduce lead times meaning you spend more time producing!

Cobot Machine tending stands alone in the market as its own unique solution. It provides manufacturers with a small footprint, flexible, short lead time and cost-effective tending solutions:

Benefits of URTEND:

  • Bullet

    Work by using off the shelf components and custom frameworks

  • Bullet

    Low Cost & Short Lead-Times

  • Bullet

    Meaning ROI is typically under 12 months

  • Bullet

    Small footprint - No Guarding - Flexible Deployment (multi machines)

  • Bullet

    CNC signal integration is possible for 80% of machines

  • Bullet

    Full on-site training is provided to get you producing quickly! 

Typical ROI:

  • Bullet

    With Systems often costing between £35-£70,000 We expect to see payback on a single shift of under 12 months.

  • Bullet

    Running lights out can often half this time, taking possible ROI's to under 6 months....


48 weeks per year x 3 years = 144 weeks

Working 80 hours per week = 11,520 Hours over 3 years

£45,000 / 11,520 Hours = £5.20 Per hour

UK Minimum wage 2023 - £10.42

Without including - sickness, training, breaks, efficiency etc.
