LEONI cable brings light to world tennis competition

When a long-standing customer approached us to work with them on a cable design that would be used for a high-profile tennis match, LEONI jumped at the chance to be a part of this project.

Kitchener – A long-standing customer of LEONI Elocab, who is a leader in telescopic mast vehicles used in the industrial and military markets, reached out to LEONI to help with the design of a new telescopic cable coil that would be used in special lighting for a well-known tennis competition in Europe.

The newly designed cable coil would help provide lighting and communications for multiple lighting towers at this event.  One of the biggest challenges that our engineering team would face is the tight tolerances required in these mast products.  Inside diameters are critical in the performance of these products and the LEONI Engineering Team designed the cable with a focus on critical dimension’s as well as keeping high flexibility in mind to perform continuously in outdoor environments including, raising and lowering the masts, rain, wind and cold temperatures.

After reviewing the overall design with the customer and implementing necessary changes to the current design, the LEONI engineering team presented a solution that would meet all of the customer’s requirements.

We were happy to work to find a solution and be a part of such a prestigious championship and look forward to continuing to work with this world class customer on many new projects in the future.
