PCBs in Cruise ships and theatres
We are often amazed at the huge range of applications in which our PCBs are used.
Recently, a member of our team was on a cruise ship and, while watching a presentation about the workings of the ship, discovered that ABL Circuits had manufactured and assembled the PCBs used to control all the features of the ship’s theatre automation. This includes using sophisticated electronic hardware and software to control the use of electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic power to move stage machinery, props, scenery, and ‘flying’ performers, achieving results previously unimaginable by manual stagehands.
The application of these circuit boards is a natural progression for our customer, who has supplied numerous world-renowned theatres across the globe, with shows such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and automation for the Marvel Universe Live – USA tour as well as TV shows, including the X Factor. Pop star Pink ‘flying’ at the iHeart Music Festival and Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now” Tour also benefitted from sophisticated stage electronics.
With our circuit boards being used in situations critical to the performance, our customer depends on us to produce a top quality, reliable product which ABL Circuits have been supplying to this client for over 20 years. Their continued use of our printed circuit boards just goes to prove how we continually meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.
In some instances, ABL Circuits has provided this client with the complete service, from PCB CAD layout, through to the PCB manufacture and assembly. We project manage the entire process, reducing any stress for the customer.
