At this year’s ABTT Theatre Show, igus is set to exhibit is latest maintenance-free innovations for the theatre and entertainment industry.

Visitors to stand L2 can view a wide range of cable management systems, cost-effective continuous flex cables, as well as plain bearings, ball bearings and linear systems that can be used to help theatre technicians manage cables and stage props more easily.

A key focus for this year’s show is the e-spoolcable management system for applications such as lighting beams. With traditional reeling drums, lighting technicians are unable to mix services and generally only one cable type can be used. In addition, a slip ring is often necessary to accommodate the inner rotation. The e-spool eliminates these issues by allowing many different cable and hose types together in any direction and, since e-spool provides end-to-end connections, no slip ring is required – a market differentiator to traditional reeling drums.

Throughout the show, igus®experts will be on hand to take visitors through the benefits and potential applications of their bearing products and cable management systems, as well as provide insight into the full range of igus products.
