Things to consider when designing winches

As one of leading double drum winch manufacturers in China, we are able to design the perfect winch system to your requirements. When it comes to winch design, there are several elements you need to consider.


The starting point for a winch design is the selection of rope. According to the type of load you intend to handle, you can choose rope or chain to be spooled on the drum.

Motive power

If you do not have a specific power requirement for your winch, we always suggest you to try electric first. And also, other types of power winch such as hydraulic winch, pneumatic winch and engine winch can be designed according to your specific needs.


The selection of gearbox is largely determined by your required efficiency and the amount of torque to be transmitted. We supply a range of gearbox options for your choice, such as reduction gear, worm gearbox and planetary gearbox.

Ancillary equipment

A wide range of ancillary equipment is available to optimize the winch function and make it suitable for your particular uses. The options include clutches and cable guides.

How Does A Double Drum Winch Work?

The drum winch machine consists of a power drum and idler drum on which the cable or rope is spooled. When the drum is running, it winds cable in and out. The resulting tension will lift or pull a load. The two drum configuration requires a loop of cable. Since the cable does not accumulate on the drum, you can have an unlimited lifting or pulling distance. And also, the maximum force of winch is available for the entire length of lift or pull.

During winching operation, exceeding the winch capacity will cause the equipment to malfunction or the rope to break. Therefore, considering your desired winch uses could save you a lot of trouble. For instance, analyze and calculate how much weight you are intended to lift or pull. Besides, to ensure a safe operation, there are several safety precautions you need to know before operating a winch. First, check the rope condition to make sure they are not frayed or broken. Second, stand clear of wire rope and load during operation. Third, never use the winch to secure a load during transportation.
