About Marine Winches

Marine winches are light and small lifting equipment (see hoisting machinery) that use a reel to wind a wire rope or chain to lift or tow heavy objects, also known as a hoist. The winch can be used alone or as a component in machinery such as lifting, road construction and mine hoisting. It is widely used because of its simple operation, large rope winding volume and convenient displacement.


The winch is also known as the hoist. The product has high versatility, compact structure, small size, light weight, heavy lifting, and convenient use and transfer. It is used for lifting or flat towing of ship equipment.


There are two types of winches, manual and electric.


The transmission mechanism of the handle rotation of the manual winch is equipped with a stopper (ratchet and pawl), which can keep the heavy object in the required position. The manual winch used for assembling or lifting heavy objects should also be equipped with safety handles and brakes. Manual winches are generally used in places with small lifting capacity, poor facility conditions, or no power supply.


Electric winches are widely used in places with heavy work and large traction requirements. The electric motor of the single-drum electric winch (pictured) drives the drum through the reducer, and a brake is installed between the electric motor and the input shaft of the reducer. In order to meet the needs of lifting, traction and rotation, there are also double drum and multi-drum winches.
