For a successful camera shot, you not only need the right timing, but also equipment that works reliably. When it comes to the moving components - for example in sliders, dollies, camera cranes or format adjustments - our energy supply systems, plain and linear bearings made of tribologically optimised plastic ensure smooth operation. They are light, quiet, non-corrosive and have proven themselves in camera technology with their long, predictable service life, simple installation and freedom from maintenance .

In film and television technology, camera cranes are an indispensable tool for implementing tracking shots in three dimensions. Especially with large, telescopic models that move horizontally, our lightweight, maintenance-free products have advantages in many places of use.
The Trackrunner from Rail & Tracking Systems is a professional fast-moving camera carriage used in sports competitions and TV shows. For the safe guidance of the cables, the company relies on energy chains of the E6 series, which easily master the high accelerations even outdoors at high temperatures.
A solution that was as light and compact as possible and required only a few components was sought for the bearing and drive of the rotary disc. A high mechanical resilience combined with low speeds was also required. The choice fell on light and vibration-dampening iglidur PRT slewing ring bearings.
We have been able to help many customers to improve the movement of their film and camera technology systems. Take a look at other customer projects in which our light and robust energy chain systems, lubrication-free linear guides, slewing ring bearings and sliding bushes are used: in large and small camera carriages, camera robots, rotary tables, jibs and focus adjustments for large format cameras.
