Home > News > Product Update - Panther S-TYPE Dolly - Make the impossible possible.

The Panther S-Type Dolly combines the advantages of different dolly concepts: the scissors-arm and the center column.

Posted on September 25, 2018, by MQ News Team
 

Additionally, with regard to functionality and performance – the S-Type Dolly beats both systems, the scissors-arm, and the center column dolly concept.

The Panther S-Type is Durable drive unit with Scissors-Arm with 100% linear motion and precision gear with 4 steering modes.
 

The S-Type Dolly is powered by an electromechanical drive system and is thus the world‘s first of its kind.
 
This has many advantages in contrast to other products which exclusively work with hydraulic such for example no dripping oil, no pumps, many movements without charging, programming and limit functions and much more.
 
 

 

 

POWER- New designed Slide-In Batteries.

 
 


In order to realize a compact and lightweight dolly design, we developed new Slide-In batteries (302577) for the S-Type. These are quickly and easily pushed into the side of the dolly and flow smoothly into it. A carrying handle facilitates handling and transport.
 

COMBI-WHEELS

Reinvented.

 

 

H-Pneumatic Wheel 
(138802)

H-Studio Wheel hard 
(310289)

H-Studio Wheel soft 
(310615)

We have reinvented and improved the Combi-Wheels. In addition to a new design, the brake has been revised, so now when you use the „BRAKE lever“ it will brake the studio- or air wheels simultaneously with the track wheels.

SCISSORS-ARM

Detachable, 100% linear and maximum stability. During the development of the arm, our engineers gave everything! The S-Type scissors-arm makes a 100% linear movement. Low energy expenditure and maximum stability are ensured by the compact double-arm design.

 

 
Weight distribution 
Arm = 40% | Dolly = 60%

DETACHABLE

To simplify the transport massively, the scissors-arm element of the Panther S-Type is detachable. It can be quickly and easily separated 100% from the body. Extra developed carrying bars (310120) enable an easy removal.

 

 

TRANSPORT

The slim design of the S-Type makes space-saving transport easy to realize. Therefore you can transport the dolly if your space is limited – even upside down.
The integrated carrying handles can be extended by the Carrying Grips (302783).

 
 

SCISSORS-ARM

Make the impossible possible.

In order to use the full length of the scissors-arm, we developed the patented full-range technology. This allows the scissors-arm to move the same way up as down into the negative. An additional high-low rig is no longer needed.

ZERO MODE 
lift-range: 73 cm /28,7”

LOW MODE 
lift-range: 103 cm /40,6”

SUPER-LOW MODE 
lift-range: 146 cm / 57,5” 
(If Dolly is raised on e. g. rostrums)

 
 

OPERATION

New Wireless Handset for a great user experience.
 

A new Wireless Handset (302788) is included in the standard package of the S-Type dolly. You can use it wirelessly and via cable. Charging is also done via cable usage. Get in touch with a great new user experience and discover important information and functions for the dolly:

4 STEERING MODES

Easy to use in every situation.

 
 

To give maximum flexibility to the operator, the Panther S-Type is equipped with 4 different steering modes: 
The wheels of the S-Type are arranged square. This has the advantage that the dolly can be moved both lengthwise and crosswise to the track – without using other wheels or accessories.

 
 

 
 

PLATFORMS

New designed Flip-Flop Platforms.

 
 

We also did our best for the platform design! You only need one single set (consisting of 3 parts) for the whole dolly. Whether high or low platform: the S-Type flipflop platforms (302583) cover every position and remain extremely stable.

ONLY ONE SET NECESSARY
