Anchor Windlass

Anchor Windlass

An anchor windlass is a machine that restrains and manipulates the anchor chain or rope on a boat, allowing the anchor to be raised and lowered. A notched wheel links the chain or the rope. A brake is provided for control and a windlass is usually powered by an electric or hydraulic motor. Our anchor windlass is available in single or double execution. This windlass is suitable for anchor chain diameters ranging from 19 mm to 120 mm. Winches can be hydraulic, electric or diesel driven and are available in vertical and horizontal positions. In the basic form, an anchor windlass is used to haul up the anchor. But anchor windlass is not just used for raising the anchor. Anchor windlass can also be used to kedge off, deploy a second anchor, raise a sail, serve as an emergency tow point, or provide assistance in high wind and current berthing situations. The anchor raising system carries heavy loads and can be dangerous. The operator should simply push the button or crank the handle to deploy or raise the ground tackle.

Windlass is a machine used on ships, which can heave up equipment such as a ship's anchor or a fishing trawl. It is designed not only to meet class requirements but also operational needs, which are often seen in off-shore tugs and vessels. The windlass duty ratings are greatly increased to match greater anchoring depths. Windlass controls at remote wheelhouse for out-of-sight operation is optional.

Windlass/ Towing Winch
For harbor tugs and escort duty tugs, we design a small diameter windlass to adapt to a high power winch drum. To meet operational requirements, with built-in automatic rope render-recovery feature, the winch drum is fitted with rope tension and length readout. We recommend to our customers that all towing escort winch should be equipped with an emergency release system.

Windlass/ Mooring Winch
As an option for simple mooring applications, clients can choose remote wheelhouse for out-of-sight operation with length readout and winch controls. Tension control system can also be built into the system, allowing the moored vessel to compensate for draft changes during loading or unloading operations or tidal changes.
