Latest energy chains and bearings solutions at ABTT 2014

Latest energy chains and bearings solutions at ABTT 2014
Leading polymer specialist igus UK will be exhibiting its innovative range of cable management systems, flexible cables and bearings solutions for the theatre industry at the ABTT Show in London. Visitors to the igus stand will also see live demonstrations of its solutions as well as meet industry experts.

igus supplies a wide range of energy chains for the theatre and entertainment industry, enabling theatre technicians to easily manage cables, and the company's compact energy chains have proven particularly popular in lifts, stages and lighting rigs. The reliable energy chain solutions include unsupported or gliding energy chains for horizontal energy supply, hanging and standing chains for vertical energy supply, as well as special solutions for rotating or retracting motion.

At this year's show, igus will be showcasing its innovative e-spool - a new generation compact cable management system that has been designed in response to industry demand for a solution that is more flexible than traditional cable drums. Robust and easy to install, e-spool is a compact system that can guide many different cable and hose types together in one system, in any direction for travels of up to 14m.

Also on show will be igus' 'zig-zag' energy chain, which is a vertical cable management system designed to save space. The zig zag installation is achieved by reversing links of the energy chain to allow a folding effect. Once retracted, the system becomes very compact and the housed cables are protected with a minimum bend radius enforced by the energy chain.  

igus' liftband, a cable carrier concept that can safely guide stage technology including, power, data and air upwards up to 13m, will also be featured on the stand.  The system allows different cable and hose types to be carried on vertical drops of up to 13m, and retracts quietly into a compact steel basket.  The cables and hoses can be quickly and easily installed due to the "easy chain" principle of the energy chain.

Additionally, igus' drylin W linear systems will be on display during the show. Well-suited for camera slide systems, they are lightweight and offer excellent rigidity. Their exceptional resistance to the ingress of dust and dirt, due to innovative dry-running technology is a particular benefit in theatre applications, and helps ensure smooth operation, even in the presence of sand or other contaminants.

Also on display are igus' stock plates, which can be used for customised parts, in all types of moving theatre and stage applications. The stock plates increase design flexibility for theatre technicians and engineers when customising special parts. As a result of using the iglidur J stock plates, designers can specify machined parts such as wear plates and strips easily and cost-effectively with less waste.

igus experts will be on hand during the show to provide advice and guidance on selecting energy chains, cabling assemblies and bearings for your own specific application.
