What is the Cost of a Bolt™ Robot?
The Cost of a Bolt is Cheaper than you Think
For those looking to take their first steps in motion control, it might surprise you to learn the cost of a Bolt or other motion control robotic system is cheaper than you might think. As a company, MRMC has been around since the late 1960s when founder Mark Roberts saw a gap in the market to develop what would be best described as an early form of model mover. Fast forward nearly 60 years and today the company has expanded to global proportions with its many robotic designs and solutions on virtually every continent — garnering a long list of industry accolades and awards, including an Academy Award for engineering excellence.
With such a vast range of developed systems, experience and industry reputation, it’s no wonder MRMC is at the forefront of camera robotics technology and the market leaders in its field. A common misconception with such a reputation is the cost of these systems. While the larger rigs such as the Milo or Titan aren’t exactly pocket change, the extremely popular high-speed systems are much lower in price and are in fact on par with other high-speed robots on the market.
With the entry-level Bolt Mini Model Mover starting at £45k it is an affordable system that will get many budding film and visual creatives into the much-coveted world of motion control. Other robotic systems such as the popular Bolt Jr+ has a package price starting from only £85k. Owning a high-speed robot of this calibre will give any studio the potential to produce similar high-speed content as those seen in Hollywood films and high-end commercials.
The cost of a Bolt robot is also often cheaper than other high-speed systems when factoring in the 24-hour customer support, the available training, the warranty and the fact these robots come with the industry-leading motion control software, Flair. Many of the visual effects created for productions such as Star Wars, Mission Impossible, Dr Strange, Avengers, Fast & Furious to list only a few, were all captured using Flair and MRMC robotics.
Lastly, there is also the return on investment for owning a Bolt or other MRMC rig. Like a Ferrari, its name carries a reputation and any studio who’s serious about the work they produce would want the very best equipment to use for their clients. What is the cost of a Bolt robot?
