INDY-9 Range of Solid Limbed Armatures

2 x Human Armatures with Solid Limbs, Hinge, 6mm & 9mm Link Plate Assemblies
Designed with a Backbone comprising 2x4mm diameter Stud Ends and a 9mm diameter steel ball Link Plate Assembly together with a combination of 6mm Hinge and Standard Link Plate Assemblies these solid (nickel plated) steel limbed armatures are more robust in the studio environment. During assembly the feet, backbone, shoulder and hip stud ends are secured using Loctite 270 high strength thread lock.

What's in the Box
When you purchase one of our armatures it comes fully assembled and is ready to go straight from the box. The armature is supplied with an Allen Keys for adjusting the tension of the joints, two M3x12mm tie down screws, two 50mm Standard Tie Down Assemblies and a 75mm length of studding with lock nuts and washers for rigging your armature.

Model INDY-H1/9: Standing 244mm tall to the shoulders this adult human armature has a double neck joint, 4mm diameter backbone with a 9mm Link Plate Assembly and the limbs and stud ends are solid nickel plated steel. The complex shoulder design allows for more realistic human movement and the hinged knee, hips, lower arm, upper arm and head link plate assemblies allow for a more controlled skeletal movement. The central backbone link assembly plates, shoulder block and hip block are machined from brass. The hip block has a single M4 rigging point and each foot has an M3 tie down point plus the provision of magnetic hold down. The armature is supplied with a 75mm long M4 rigging stud, two standard M3x50mm tie down assemblies, two M3x12mm tie down screws, 2mm & 2.5mm allen key for adjusting the tension of the link plate assemblies.

What are the differences between our Armature Ranges?

The INDY Hinge Range: The INDY Hinge Range of Armatures have a combination of Standard & Hinged Link Plate Assemblies. The joints on the Lower Knees, Hips and Arms are HINGED to provide a more realistic skeletal movement. The armature is assembled using machined nickel plated solid steel limbs and stud ends with 6mm ball joints combined with anodised aluminium shoulder and hip blocks eliminating the need for thread locked link/ball assemblies.
The INDY 6 Range: The INDY 6 Range of Armatures uses Standard Link Plate Assemblies and is assembled using machined nickel plated solid steel limbs and stud ends with 6mm ball joints combined with anodised aluminium shoulder and hip blocks eliminating the need for thread locked link/ball assemblies.
The INDY 9 Range: The INDY 9 Range of Armatures have a combination of Standard & Hinged Link Plate Assemblies. The joints on the Lower Knees, Hips and Arms are HINGED to provide a more realistic skeletal movement. The backbone comprises a 9mm brass & steel joint and 4mm diameter upper and lower back components for extra strength. The rest of the armature is assembled using 3mm machined nickel plated solid steel limbs and stud ends with 6mm ball joints combined with brass shoulder and hip blocks eliminating the need for thread locked link/ball assemblies.
The PROFESSIONAL Range: The Professional Range of Armatures use Standard Link Plate Assemblies and is assembled using precision machined 6mm nickel plated steel balls in the link assembly with M3 stainless steel limbs that are secured during assembly using Loctite 270 high strength thread lock.
The BESPOKE Range: The Bespoke Range of Armatures uses a combination of INDY or Professional components depending on the armature being built.
