Machinex launches leasing program for SamurAI robots, expands sales force

To manage the company’s new SamurAI leasing program, Matthew Smith has been appointed as technology and sales engineer.


Machinex, Quebec, has announced a leasing program for SamurAI robots. Through the new program, Machinex can offer material recovery facility (MRF) operators the benefit of automating more of the manual sorting process without the instantaneous impact on cash flow.

With a monthly payment structure designed to help modernize new or existing sorting facilities with SamurAI robots, the company says MRFs can anticipate increased productivity and reduced human resources cost and challenges.

According to Machinex, this program ensures customers always have the latest neural knowledge learned from operations throughout the entire industry.

The lease program takes the robot and integration costs and bundles them together to deliver a turnkey system, which customers pay for monthly. Various financing terms are available and can provide for purchasing or operational leases that carry a residual value, allowing a purchase, upgrade or return at end of the term. 

To answer growing demand for sorting robots and to manage the SamurAI leasing program, Machinex has appointed Matthew Smith as a technology sales engineer. Smith’s new role with Machinex is to provide new and existing customers with the latest technologies, more specifically with sorting robots but also with optical sorters, balers and more.

Covering the North American territory as well as a part of Europe, he will ensure customers’ satisfaction while supporting them in their future needs, Machinex says.

Smith has more than 25 years of business experience in the area of sales and application with a strong focus on customer satisfaction. Most recently, he spent the last year working as a sales engineer for Schmid Biomass Boilers in Canada.
