Last week we attended the RS STEMfest 2019 three day event.
Over the first two days, the igus® team welcomed groups of local school children and their teachers to the event and to the igus® stand. With over 500 students from primary and secondary education visiting the event RS Components did a fantastic job at engaging the kids. We welcomed the students into the exhibition area where we had our stand and everyone got to see the igus® robots in action as well as having a go on our NEW Virtual Reality headset where they got instantly transported to our head office in Cologne.
On the final day (Saturday 6th July) the event was open to the public and attracted over 800 visitors, with an amazing festival atmosphere, street food, and the RS Titan II truck taking centre stage in the exhibition area parents and guardians brought their children along and enjoyed seeing our robots, and finding out about igus® products.
This week igus® UK attended the ABTT Theatre Show at Alexandra Palace in London where we showcased some of the newest products in our range that we have specifically developed for the theatre and stage industry.
Our main focus was our NEW 21m e-spool cable management system for applications such as lighting beams and sound systems. This alternative to traditional reeling drums allows lighting technicians to mix services such as power, audio, bus and even fluids by allowing many different cable and hose types to work together in the same system.
Our other stand highlights this year were chainflex® cables, PRT slewing rings, drylin® W, lift band, zig-zag cable management and tribo tape.
We also launched igus® Virtual Reality.
The igus® ‘VR’ experience will be available at all our shows throughout the year where you will have the opportunity to be instantly transported to our head office in Cologne.
