Drum winch is designed and manufactured for efficient and effortless material handling. It is a simple winch machine that consists of a drum onto which rope winds. During winching operation, the drum will rotate to wind the rope in and out. The resulting tension will lift or pull a heavy load. The winch machine is commonly found in construction, mine, factories and marine. It is capable of handling 1 ton to over 300 tons load.

We design and manufacture a variety of winches to suit the needs of every aspect of industries.
Electric Or Hydraulic Drum Winch?
Electrically driven winch
Electric winch is a popular choice for many engineering projects that require a cost-effective and efficient lifting or pulling of heavy loads and materials, such as to lift, pull or drag loads in the installation and dismantling of steel structures and heavy equipment. The electric powered winch delivers safe and reliable operation, easy load control, low operational cost and simple maintenance.
If you are looking for a reliable lifting and pulling winch, always try electric first.

Hydraulically driven winch
If the electric power is not available or hard to obtain in your working area, a hydraulic powered winch can be a better choice. What’s more, it can be built for the most demanding tasks, commonly found in marine and offshore applications.
The commonly used marine drum winches include drum anchor winch, boat drum winch, drum mooring winch, etc.
Hydraulic winch is more complex comparing to an electric winch equipment since a hydraulic pump is required to operate the winch. In addition, it is more expensive and requires more maintenance care.

Electrical – for electrically driven winch, the controls can range from a simple control box that comprises up/down push buttons and emergency stop to a remote control that can be either a control pendant or a wireless remote control.
Hydraulic – for hydraulic winch, a hydraulic pump is used to operate the equipment. The winch can be operated from the HPU, from a central control location by removing the control panels from the HPU or by wireless remote control.
Safety Equipment That You May Need
It is critical to fit extra safety equipment for improved work safety and operational efficiency. The winch equipment can be delivered with a variety of safety equipment that either prevent emergency situations or limit the damage.
Equipment like spindle limit switch, load limiter, drum guard and over speed warning is preventive safety equipment, which is intended to prevent dangerous situations by switching off the equipment.
Reactive safety equipment such as emergency stop or cut off valves is designed to minimize the consequences of dangerous situations.
