The windlass, also can be called winch, belongs to a small light equipment, which is used to lift or drag several heavy materials through chain and wire rope that twined on drum. Generally speaking, the windlass can be usage alone, as well as be a part of some machines, such as the lifting machine, road construction and so on. Due to many advantages, like simple operation, big capacity, easy movement and installation, the windlass equipment is widely used in many work sites, for instance, the construction site, water conservancy project, forestry, mine industry and harbor to lift or drag materials.
As we all know, according to different classifications, we will find so many different types of windlass. As a leader in winch industry, Ellsen Machinery Equipment co.,Ltd is quite confident to manufacture all kinds of windlass with rich experience and advanced technology.
Our winch products just as follows
Winch by function
- Anchor winch/ windlass
The anchor winch is mainly used to cast and weight anchor for a boat. Usually, the anchor winch has a steady speed in 10m/min. When choose a suitable winch, you should know clearly about the anchor weight, the diameter and length of anchor chain, or the diameter and length of wire rope.
- Anchor and mooring winch/windlass
The anchor and mooring winch just is a combination of anchor winch and mooring winch, which not only can do the job about cast anchor, but also can mooring for a ship. Aimed at the anchor and mooring winch, we will mainly offer two types, they are the electric anchor and mooring winch, and hydraulic anchor and mooring winch.
- Towing winch/ windlass
We mainly use a towing winch on the other ship to drag another boat. So compared with the other types of windlass, the towing winch holds bigger tensile force, normally from 10 ton at least to 200 ton with a formal speed at 10m/min. There are also two main modes of towing winch, the electric towing and hydraulic towing winch. Besides, we are capable to design and custom your certain towing winch with advanced technology and competitive price.
- Mooring winch/windlass
When need to park a big vessel beyond the man power, and then a mooring winch is a best choice. Using a mooring winch, you can easily park your boat in offshore steadily and quickly, which not only benefit for raising the working efficiency, but also for high productivity. Decided by the specific function, usually the mooring winch is fixed on offshore. Generally speaking, the mooring winch share a similar appearance with towing windlass, however, the mooring windlass possess smaller pull force and tonnage, which from 5 ton to 50 ton, and also with a normal speed of 10m/min.
- Capstan winch/windlass
The capstan windlass usually regarded as a small winch, which plays an important role on deck or offshore to do the job of mooring or anchor for a boat. When considering the speed, we will offer three types, which include single speed, double speed and three speeds in electric or hydraulic capstan winch.
Winch by structure
Winch by power
1. Electric winch
The electric winch is design for these working place where need heavy work and big tactile effort. In order to suit for different working requirement, we are capable to offer several types of electric winch with single drum, double drum or multi-drum. In general, the entire winch with a load rating below 10 ton can be designed into electric winch.
2. Diesel winch
Usually, the diesel winch will chiefly find its position more in the poor working environment where need small lifting weight and holds outdate facility or even not any power supply. In order to keep weight in the need place, our professional engineers specially design a stopper plug that contains ratchet wheel and pawl on the transmission mechanism of gyration handle in a winch. In additional, there are also should equip with safety lever and detent in a winch that used to assemble or lift weight.
- Hydraulic winch
Compared with manual winch and electric winch, the hydraulic windlass holds the biggest load rating, which from 10 ton at least to 5000 ton at last. As always, there are mainly eight core components to compose a hydraulic windlass, among which is hydraulic motor with low speed or high speed, detent, planetary gear box, clutch, drum, support shaft, rack, and disk. The hydraulic motor in hydraulic windlass enjoys high mechanical efficiency and big starting torque. Besides, we will collocate different distributor according to distinct working condition. Due to the compact structure, small volume, light weight in outstanding appearance, and better safety, high efficiency, low speed, great steadily, low noise and reliable and simple operation in well performance, the hydraulic windlass being the hottest products in our company.
