Every stage is unique, which means that each and every component not only has to be powerful, durable and efficient but must also fit together perfectly. Theatre and stage construction present special technical challenges. These challenges include high loads, such as those found on crossbeams, stage lighting, stage sets or entire stage platforms, which must move safely and reliably. Furthermore, technical equipment must operate quietly and out of sight, so as not to interfere with the performance. igus® offers energy supply systems, highly flexible cables and plastic bearings that meet these exact requirements. As igus® provides modular systems and a wide range of components, it is possible to implement customized applications quickly and easily.
Zig-zag e-chains® from igus® are used in this application. This system allows a creative solution for vertically suspended applications, which is not only cost-effective but also space-saving and "inconspicuous".
Stage platforms are used in theatres and concert halls all over the world. Since space under the stage is very limited, the data and power cables must be guided safely and reliably. This can be achieved using igus® zig-zag
e-chains®, which are housed in space-saving narrow metal containers.
Ten igus® e-spool® systems have been installed on the fly walk of the mobile gallery at the Cultural and Congress Centre in Toruń, Poland. They provide the necessary flexibility for the given space in every case.
Smooth running, low level of vibration and high wear resistance are important criteria for the individual components of studio equipment. Camerobot Systems GmbH from Germany uses igus® series E6 energy chains to guide the robotic systems in the news and television studio.
The above-stage equipment includes lighting systems, PA loudspeaker systems and crossbeams. This is another area where igus® energy supply systems show what they can do.
igus® energy supply systems have proven their worth in the below-stage equipment of the stage. They are deployed in the power supply systems for stage platforms and turntables.
In the field of lighting equipment, not only e-chains® are used but also maintenance-free and self-lubricating linear guides, slewing ring bearings and plain bearings.
