Marine Winch Solution

Challenge

The crane winch industry demands for a high torque, environmentally friendly variable speed motor that can operate in the harshest of marine environments. High torque winches have traditionally employed hydraulics where oil leakage can cause an environmental issue, are a maintenance nightmare, and reliability can come into question. If torques can be increased with a gearmotor brake combination, reliability can be increased and concerns over hydraulic leaks disappear.

Solution

By integrating a variable speed marine motor that incorporates a specially designed gear drive and brake, an increase in torque can provide for higher braking capacity. The reliability and dependability was substantially improved of the mooring and anchor winches used on a special mooring system that requires GPS positioning. System efficiencies increase, installation costs reduce, and environmental concerns are mitigated.
