Doughty Engineering’s new Articulated Carriage made its official debut at this year’s LDI show. The Articulated Carriage allows the Studio Rail perimeter tracks to be used for scenery or lighting – a significant benefit to both TV and theatre applications. It consists of a laser profiled 6mm back-bone chassis with independent bogies attached at either end. Both bogies are fitted with guide wheels to steer the carriage around each curve. One bogie is fitted with a large hook for pole operation while the other features a pole-operated brake. The Three Point Receiver allows the spigot to rotate freely when corners are encountered, allowing two carriages to work in unison.
