Anchor winch is a kind of large deck machinery on ships, used for retracting and releasing anchors and chains.The windlass is usually installed on the main deck of the fore and aft of the ship, and is used for the ship to lift anchor and anchor the cable

Vertical winch, a light and small lifting equipment, also known as a winch, that USES coils to wind wire ropes or chains to lift or pull heavy objects.Winch can be used alone, can also be used for lifting, road building and mine hoisting machinery components, due to the simple operation, large amount of rope winding, easy to move and widely used.

When deck space is limited, vertical winch is your premium choice, vertical winch can save more flat space.

Description of advantages of vertical winch:

1. Vertical electric winch provides high linear speed and high linear tension 

2. The winch capacity of this series ranges from 20 tons to 90 tons

3. Vertical winch design has few components, creating low maintenance

4. Wire rope guard plate protects wire rope from gear pollution

5. Full gear housing protects gears and helps provide personal protection

6. A single winch may be used for right or left winches

7. Motor specifications range from 3 HP to 12.5 HP, 208 V, 230/460 V, 3 phase, with thermostat relay

8. Galvanized winch provides good corrosion protection
