I am selling my gently used(18mos of work) Sachtler Artemis Carbon Spring Arm
Please contact for pricing.
Spring Arm ACT2 Carbon / 26 kg (57.3 lbs)
Replacing the aluminum “bones” of the ACT 2 spring arm with the ultra light, rigid and torsion-free carbon fiber “bones” caused lowers the weight of the arm itself by additional weight reduction of another 500 gr. / 1.10 lbs.
The ultra lightweight design enables high-speed operating and longer-lasting takes.
The ACT 2 carbon upgrade offers the same technical features as the ACT 2 aluminum spring arm.
Carbon is used more and more often in modern aircraft construction, and in the field of racing car construction the use of carbon has been the standard since many years.
But our main reason was to further cut down on weight.
The carbon version of the spring arm weighs another 500 grams (1.1 lbs) less than the
Sachtler ’s new artemis ACT 2 includes a full range of design innovations
• Light, torsion-free construction
• 3 exchangeable spring sets for loads from 11 to 26 kg / 22.6 to 53.3 lbs.
• Extra-easy spring pre-tensioning mechanism
• Flip-over mechanism for vest connection (mating block)
Compatibility with all vests using the American standard industry connector (socket block)
and gimbals with 5/8“ arm post
• Adjustable arm post friction
• Arm posts available in three lengths (6“, 10“ and 12“)
• All adjustments handled with a 4 mm 5/32“ hex key
Based on the special experiences of our suppliers, we are able to produce carbon parts in series now. New production methods provide high reliability and safety for the products and replace manual lamination that is a quite unreliable production method.
The aluminum arm is already an unbelievably quick and agile arm, but the carbon
version is even better. Operators who shoot many sport shows or must walk fast or run
while shooting for other reasons will appreciate the arm’s light weight and the fact that it stays in steady position during fast movements.
