At the 2013 ABTT show on 12–13 June in London, Igus will showcase its E-Spool energy chain for the theatre industry. Visitors to the company’s stand will be able to see live demonstrations of the energy chains and cable management products and meet industry experts.

E-Spool is a compact cable management system that has been designed to enable users to guide many different cable and hose types — for example power, BUS, data and fibre optics — in a single system.

Igus will also highlight its Zig Zag energy chain, a vertical cable management system designed to save space.

Products in detail

E-Spool

  • The E-Spool is robust and easy to install.
  • It provides cables reliably in any direction for travels of up to 14m.
  • It provides reliable operation for a range of lifting and moving applications.

Zig Zag

  • Installation is achieved by reversing the links of the energy chain to allow a folding effect.
  • This can be done several times, depending on the length of the energy chain and the space required.
  • Once retracted, the system becomes compact and the housed cables are protected with a minimum bend radius enforced by the energy chain.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
