Heavy duty boat winch is installed on ships, docks or shores, mainly for anchoring, mooring and towing, as well as lifting and pulling heavy objects on the ship. The common boat winches are: anchor winches and windlasses, anchor and mooring winches, mooring winches, towing winches, capstans, etc.
Anchor winch windlass: used for ship anchoring. There are two types: anchor chain winch and anchor rope winch. The speed is generally about 10m/min. When buying an anchor winch, you need to know the anchor weight and chain diameter and length, or the wire rope diameter and length.
Anchor and mooring winch: equivalent to a combination of windlass and mooring winch. There are mainly two types: electric and hydraulic winch.
Mooring winch: used to moor a ship. That is, a ship is anchored to the shore and needs to use a winch to stabilize the parking. So mooring winches are usually fixed on the shore.
Towing winch: installed on a boat to tow another boat. The towing winch generally has a larger pulling force (10T-200T), and the speed is generally 10m/min. It can be electrically or hydraulically powered as per requirement.

Selecting the right winch
Considering your current demand and possible capacity increase in the future, select a winch with the right load and speed. Make sure the winch is suitable for the environment it will operate in. If you have any special requirements or operating conditions, talk to Aicrane professionals, who will help you select the perfect equipment for the job.
Selecting the right safety equipment
To meet the increasing demands of marine and offshore operations, several safety equipment is necessary to be fitted for improved work safety and operational efficiency, including spindle limit switch, load limiter, over speed warning, drum guards, emergency stop switches or cut off valves.
Inspection and maintenance
Inspecting and maintaining the winch periodically is critical to keep the equipment safe and efficient. Make sure the equipment in inspected and maintained by qualified people.
Make sure all staff involving in operating, inspecting or maintaining the equipment is properly trained and instructed.
