Mitsubishi HC Capital America Grows its Financing of Automation-As-A-Service for the Robotics Industry

The company’s expansion of AaaS is designed to meet the demand for leading-edge technology to address labor shortages, increasing costs and safety requirements, and drive greater growth for small and mid-sized businesses in the sector.

Norwalk, CT, December 1, 2022 -Specialty finance provider Mitsubishi HC Capital America announces it is growing its portfolio of automation-as-a-service (AaaS) financing for the robotics industry. The company's expansion of AaaS is designed to meet the demand for leading-edge technology to address labor shortages, increasing costs and safety requirements, and drive greater growth for small and mid-sized businesses in the sector.


Mitsubishi HC Capital America is working with OEMs to provide financing solutions for automation and related robotics deployments that bundle the costs of equipment, software, supplies and servicing into one affordable monthly payment for robotics businesses. The advantages of AaaS include the familiar benefits of financing such as preserving cash for other business uses and faster ROI. The AaaS subscription model differs from traditional lease structures in that it isn't bound to a specific piece of equipment, so end-users have access to the latest technological upgrades and avoid the risk of obsolescence.

"High costs and rapid advancements in automation and robotics equipment make it uniquely suited for as-a-service financing," said Jason Koby, Senior Vice President Sales, Vendor Finance. "Mitsubishi HC Capital America's customized solutions provide the use of a piece of equipment that for many businesses would be otherwise unattainable.

OEMs are finding that offering AaaS financing is critical to their competitiveness, as well as that of their customers. Mitsubishi HC Capital America is providing private label financing for OEMs in the robotics sector, which enables their end-users to have a seamless customer experience and helps build customer loyalty.

Koby added, "With businesses more familiar with and receptive to subscription model services, AaaS reframes the thinking around ever owning equipment again."

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
