When international stars perform their shows, when a play or an orchestra inspires the audience, the stage machinery plays its part hidden in the background. The stage machinery is the star behind the scenes. Röchling Industrial in Xanten produces cable drums made of Lamigamid® 310 for an international customer specialising in stage machinery to ensure a smooth change in scenery.
There is a lot of machinery found behind the stages of national and international theatres and venues. During elaborate theatre plays, musical events or orchestral performances, the audience should barely notice the changes in scenery. While the audience enjoys the great performances shown in theatres, the stage technicians work behind the scenes to ensure that the scenery, lighting and sound perfectly complement the performance.
An important part of the stage machinery is the so-called overstage machinery. It is used to change the scenery, open and close the curtains or transport entire orchestras. The cable drums made of Lamigamid® 310 from Röchling in Xanten play a key role in this.
