Softwear Automation is announcing Sewbots-as-a-Service, a rental lease service to allow manufacturers, brands and retailers to source and manufacture in the U.S. at a lower cost than outsourcing and with greater predictability and quality.
Sewbots-as-a-Service creates immediate ROI benefits while enabling scale across retailer, brand and manufacturer. For a monthly fee starting at US$5,000/month per robot, a factory can add annual production capacity of up to 1M units (product dependent). This enables a manufacturer to bring on a Sewbot for just over US$55/shift (based on 7 days a week and 3 shifts a day).
Sewbot-as-a-Service is focused on bringing scale to basic sewn goods production within the country of destination (a local supply chain). This focus allows manufacturers to move current seamstresses to premium products while creating a more reactive, reliable and sustainable textile ecosystem.
