The supply of lower and upper machinery is one of the core competencies of Waagner-Biro Stage Systems. The operation of revolving stages, elevating platforms, platform carts, point hoists, winches, hydraulic drives and other technical equipment provides the stage magic that so thrills audiences. As one of the few suppliers in the industry, Waagner-Biro provides the entire range of services and is therefore an important partner to the most prestigious opera houses and theatres in the world.
A great amount of technical know-how went into the development of advanced drive and control systems. With the CAT-series, a mobile control system, Waagner-Biro provides control units that are on the cutting edge of technology.
When it comes to using space more efficiently and flexibly, Waagner-Biro's telescopic stands are often the ideal systems. They are characterized by a high degree of automation - which results in minimal conversion times -, an efficient use of space and a level of security which is equal to that of concrete stands.
Some of the technical advances that were developed for stage systems have proven their usefulness beyond their traditional area of application. Waagner-Biro has made use of these advances to offer a range of special solutions, like flexible roof structures, variable acoustics systems, and special lifting and rotational components.
