The modular design of igus® e-chains® facilitates this space-saving and unconventional solution. For modern platform technology, such as performance stages, a variety of conduits which adjust the stage height must be accommodated. Lack of space almost invariably presents particular difficulties. The photo below shows an e-chain® in a "Zig-Zag" configuration. The unextended e-chain® is stored in a "basket" underneath the stage. If the stage is raised, the e-chain® unfolds, generating little to no noise. This construction is possible with Systems E4/4, E4/0 e- chains® as well as many other types. Please consult igus® for these kinds of applications.
Zig-zag systems perform their tasks in the Cologne opera house stage pit, ensuring the supply of power, data, and hydraulics required to move the stage podium. The systems are cost-effective, and their compact design means that they require little installation space.
Zig-zag systems provide a reliable power supply in the House of Dancing Water in Macau. All media cables (energy, data, hydraulics, pneumatics) are guided safely and reliably in a single system.
Zig-zag systems are used in stage portals. Energy and data cables and hydraulic hoses are safely and reliably guided in a single system.
