1 AEMK Systems inc. Deltabot for food packaging industry Making Automation Affordable
2 Problems Expensive Existing Automation Solutions Rising Manual Labour CostIncreasing Employee TurnoverTraining CostsProductivity CompromisesCompetitionQuality and Production CycleExpensive Existing Automation SolutionsLimited FlexibilityHigh Cost and MaintenanceThere are many players in the in industries that utilize a combination of manual labour and automation.They are currently facing a dilemma, which is whether to use more of manual labour or automation.There has been a 60% increase on cost of manual labour for the last 10 to 15 years.There has been an increase in employee turnover due to workplace injuries and other factors.Training costs and Compensations have been the issues for these companies.Competitions among industry players is an ongoing challenge. For these type of competitors, quality and production cycle time are the two main factors in competitive advantages. Companies need a good enough automation system in order to create an edge over other competitors.The current automation solutions are very costly with limited flexibility and high maintenance. Therefore many companies are still reluctant to adopt automation.
3 Solution Automation System Integration Flexible to integrate High Speed and PrecisionQuality and ProductivityCompetitive AdvantageReplace Manual LabourEliminates Workplace InjuryLow Cost and MaintenancePatented TechnologyWith AEMK’s Deltabot, adopters can solve all the previously mentioned problems.AEMK provides the Automation System Integration that uses their patented cable-based technology.It is very flexible to integrate and scalable into any size.The Deltabot technology provides high speed and precision to increase quality and productivity to a degree where it become the adopters’ competitive advantageAEMK’s technology eliminates workplace injury because the automation system integrated to replace manual labour on the dangerous tasks.Since it is automation, it has consistent and high quality performance unlike manual labours, which have varying performance.AEMK’s technology can also reduce the costs and the need to maintain the system.

5 Core Technology and Product Automation System Integration Design – ProductCore Technology and ProductPatented TechnologyDeltabotCore ServiceAutomation System IntegrationCosts$35,000 - $45,000Price Point$49,000 - $63,000AEMK’s core product is called Deltabot that houses the patented cable-based technology.AEMK’s core service is the automation system integration where AEMK have engineers inspect, analyze and design compatible integrated automation systemsThe costs per robot is from $35,000 to $45,000 and the price is a 40% markup - $49,000 to $63,000 respectively.The difference in price is based on the material used and the difficulty of the projects.
6 Design – Process Automation System Integration Consulting and QuotingSystem DesignPrototyping and Beta TestingFinalization and InstallationAfter-sale Services MaintenanceAutomation System IntegrationAEMK’s sales process is to first have engineers provide consulting and quoting services to give the clients an basic understanding of what they need and how much it costs. Then the engineers start to design and implement the system. Once a prototype is done, the system is brought in and beta testing is performed to make adjustments. Once everything is done the final version is installed and final adjustment and testing is made.AEMK’s product comes with a 1-year warranty and is available for after-one-year maintenance subscription.
7 Deltabot System Integration Subscription for 1+ year Maintenance Design – Revenue ModelDeltabot System Integration$49,000 for Regular Model Integration$63,000 for Stainless Steel material (FDA requirement)Subscription for 1+ year Maintenance$300 annual recurring for 5 years$450 annual recurring for 3 yearsAEMK generate revenue by selling the automation system integration package which includes the actual system and the design and implement service. As mentioned before, the Deltabot system integration is priced at $49,000 for regular material and $63,000 for stainless steel material that according to FDA regulation needed if it is touching food products.After the initial sales cycle is completed and 1 year warranty period is expired, AEMK also provides the subscribed maintenance service that is $300 annual recurring for 5 years and $450 for 3 years.

9 Tests - Narrative Manual Labour Patented Technology NeedDevelopSolutionManual LabourAutomation adoptersPatented TechnologyTargeted MarketIntegration ExpertiseLow Cost and MaintenanceThe industries have a need to address the issues with existing manual labours, there is a high manual labour turnover rate and overhead costs.There are many dangerous tasks that need to be done and it is too risky to keep the manual labours at these kind of tasks.The companies that have automation systems are suffering from high switching costs and limited flexibility.AEMK has developed a solution that is patented and has a existing demand. The targeted market, food packaging industry, has a 67% growth rate and current size is $50 million. The future expansion into other robotic industries is possible and has a total size of $5.6 billion.AEMK has in inventory the patented technology and the expertise in system integration that provides quality and low cost and maintenance. Other existing competitors provide the similar solutions with similar performance but much costly. AEMK has enough sustainable competitive advantage to enter the industry and obtain market share.
