Cable winches – practical lifting technology for many areas of use
Cable winches, also called drum winches, are classic items of equipment when it comes lifting technology – and can lift, hold, pull as well as move loads. In addition to manually operated models that require muscle power, electrically operated cable winches with powerful motors are also available. Discover mechanical and electric winches for use in industry, warehouses, workshops and on construction sites at kaiserkraft – from basic manual cable winches for lightweight goods to low maintenance electric models for heavy loads.
How do cable winches work?
Cable winches lift loads of various shapes with the aid of a multi-strand wire cable or a plastic rope. The cable is wound around a rotating drum. This raises or lowers the cable and the load connected to it. The process is carried out mechanically using a hand crank, or electrically using a motor drive.
What are cable winches suitable for?
As easy to operate lifting devices, cable winches are suitable for lifting and moving lightweight to heavy loads. As a rule, their pulling force is lower than that of a chain hoist. However, cable winches take up very little space and are pleasantly light in weight. Depending on the model, this also makes them suitable for mobile use.
Mobile or stationary – when is which cable winch the right one?
The site of use and the purpose of use are decisive when selecting cable winches:
- Hand operated cable winches for wall mounting are suitable for a fixed location in the warehouse, in production facilities or in the workshop. The compact devices are quiet and can lift loads of up to several hundred kilograms.
- Would you like to lift a lot more weight than that? Then we recommend a stationary, or mobile, electric cable winch with a lifting capacity of up to 2000 kilograms.
- On the construction site and in locations that are constantly changing, cable winches for construction are the right solution. They are quick and easy to attach with a hook and are controlled by remote control. The fact that they shut down automatically once the cable has been wound is also an important safety aspect.
