At the 2015 ABTT Theatre Show at Alexandra Palace in London, igus is set to exhibit its range of cable management systems, continuous flex cables, plain bearings, ball bearings and linear systems for the theatre and entertainment industry.

The products are designed to help theatre technicians manage cables and stage props more easily.

In particular, igus will highlight its e-spool cable management system for applications such as lighting beams.

The e-spool eliminates the problems associated with traditional reeling drums by allowing many different cable and hose types together in any direction. In addition, because e-spool provides end-to-end connections, no slip ring is required.

Another development is igus’s magsnap magnetic adapter, which is for applications where hanging energy chains are used, such as on vertical and/or horizontal lifts.

Magsnap holds the energy chain run onto a metallic surface, preventing it from swinging or moving out of its axis of motion — something that can cause unwanted noise and entanglement.

The company’s tribo-tape can be adhered to working surfaces to facilitate the frictionless and noiseless sliding of large objects such as sets or props on and off stage.

Made from self-lubricating iglidur A160 material, the tribo-tape reduces friction and features good wear characteristics.

Igus will be found on stand B3 at the event, which takes place on 24–25 June 2015.

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.
