motion plastics for
stage equipment

Supply energy safely, quietly and invisibly

Every stage is unique. That is why each component must not only be effective, durable and efficient, but must also fit together perfectly. Theatre and stage construction presents special technical challenges, including moving heavy loads, such as trusses, stage lighting and stage sets, or entire stage platforms safely and reliably. Technical equipment must not interfere optically or acoustically with the performance. igus offers energy supply systems, highly flexible cables and polymer bearings that meet these exact requirements. As igus provides modular systems and a wide range of components, it is possible to implement customised applications quickly and easily.

Advantages of igus energy chain systems:

  • Energy and data cables and hydraulic hoses guided in one system
  • Lightweight, quiet (32 dB(A)) and low-vibration
  • Suitable for confined spaces or very high loads
  • Robust, even at high speeds and accelerations
  • Simple installation and quick maintenance or repairs
