Thinking Big with Axcor 300 in the UK
UK – The last two months have seen the first Axcor300 units start shipping to their awaiting customers in the UK. These new LED fixtures from Claypaky have caused a stir with their big performance delivered in a small package. The spot, wash and beam fixtures supply a complete package to the broad mid-market.
The Claypaky name has long been associated with no-compromise engineering performance and quality and the Axcor 300 series brings this to a wider reach of shows and budgets than ever before. Once the range was announced Ambersphere Solutions, the exclusive UK distributor for Claypaky, were inundated with requests to see these products close up. These powerful yet compact moving head LED fixtures offer a complete, fully featured toolkit to lighting designers.
The complete Axcor 300 range presents an attractive commercial opportunity for rental companies, as a finely engineered, versatile equipment choice which meets the requirements of the widest range of productions and applications.
Darren Parker, Owner of DPL stated: “I needed an LED replacement for a mid-range fixture and the Axcor 300 spot ticked all of the boxes especially as it has CMY colour mixing and extremely sharp optics. We have used them on our own projects recently and as a result we have two extremely chuffed clients who both commented on the quality and brightness of the custom gobos!”
The Axcor 300 range’s suitability to such a wide variety of applications is further aided by the fixtures’ compact and lightweight designs, which make them an ideal choice for use in theatres, television studios or smaller venues where space is limited.
Paul Hornsby of the National Theatre said: “We chose the Axcor 300 Spot as we were looking for a bright LED moving Profile which was small and quiet, yet still a powerful and versatile fixture for areas like event spaces and small performance venues. This fits the bill perfectly.”

With a full order book already Ambersphere expects this range of fixtures to gain the same popularity as its previous models the Sharpy and Alpha range have over the previous years.
Philip Norfolk says: “The Axcor series is a genuine revelation. Feature set, optical engineering and light output aren’t simply good – there are astounding. Then you add in the incredible price point and each unit becomes irresistible. Claypaky have outshone all in their path with the Axcor 300 series and we cannot wait to show more and more people just how good they are!”
View the complete Axcor 300 range at PLASA Focus Leeds, 1st-2nd May on stand N-A21, and register to see them at the Ambersphere New Technology Showcase on the 21st May.
