Doughty unveils new kit at BVE 2019
UK – Doughty Engineering will be bringing its new Fifty Clamp to BVE in London for the first time this year. The clamp will make its show debut on stand E30. Mark Chorley, design engineer at Doughty said: "We hope our customers in the broadcast industry will see the Fifty Clamp as a welcome addition to our existing range. Our Twenty Clamp is one of our best sellers and we realised that a clamp that could take an additional 30kg would be a bit of a game changer.” The Fifty Clamp which is available to order has TUV approval, a SWL of 50kg and has been designed to fit tube diameter 38mm - 51mm. It is made from pressure die cast aluminium which prevents damage to thin wall truss. It is captive with M10 or M12 bolts and comes supplied with an M10 fixing kit.
Doughty will also bring its lightweight lighting stand to the show. This piece of kit which made its debut at BVE 2018 takes all the principles of a tank trap but packages them into a neater, more aesthetically pleasing model. It comprises a flat, round plate and slim tube, slotted at each end to allow cables to run unseen inside it. A 28mm receiver is incorporated in the top of the stand which will take an industry standard 28mm spigot. When used in conjunction with a spigot adapter, the stand can also be used to hold small speakers. This robust piece of kit has a sleeker appearance than the standard tank trap and comes with a stacking slot which allows for the stands to be stacked together as well as a carry handle.
Also making a return appearance is Doughty's popular pole operated yoke. "When we launched the pole operated yoke at BVE two years ago, little did we know that it would go on to become such a sought after piece of kit,", says Julian Chiverton, sales director at Doughty. "BVE was very obviously the perfect place to launch the product."
The pole operated yoke is modular in design and can be made exactly to customer specification from existing stock. Designed to stretch and shorten to fit any sized light, the yoke is fitted to a light with two cups which pan and tilt, and being pole operated, this enables to operator to make any adjustments from the ground, taking away the need to have ladders cluttering up the set and posing potential safety hazards.
Studio Rail will also be on display as well as a range of pantographs and grip equipment and the Doughty team will be on hand for the duration of the show to answer any questions.
Julian Chiverton, sales director said: "As always, we're looking forward to a fantastic few days at BVE and all the opportunities for networking and showcasing our products that it brings."
