GIANT SNIFFER EFFECT

May 2017 | Theater

This moment when curtain call triggers the show, better having this unique eye-catching effect creating direct emotions. This particular project challenged us to “sniff” four giant satinac curtains up to 230m2 each, disposed in a 50m circumference central stage for Showtex / Wanda entertainment show in Harbin (China), Ice Romance by Sokol.

Exmachina developed an innovative friction machine that doesn’t roll-up the fabric like a traditional system, but guides it between two conveyor belts and packs it in a detachable bag at 10m/s. Innovative features have been designed to succeed such as automatic fabric detection (automatic stop) and slow reverse mode to unpack the fabric.

Icing on cake, we have not yet found limitation curtain size for this technology.
