The stage wagons at the Muziektheater rest on air casters and can be tracked or manually moved about the stage. Visual act is in the process of rebuilding the wagons so as to allow for automated movement. Each wagon will be fitted with cassettes containing Visual act drive modules and control equipment. The cassettes slide into the ends of the 200mm high wagons. Air pressure is used to lower the drive units to the floor and maintain an even load on the drive wheels regardless of the load on the wagons.
The wagons can be operated individually or in combination. A group of 5 allows the movement of an entire set to or from the stage. The wagons will have all the features of the Visual act Advanced system – including wireless control and accurate navigation.
