DROMEC Winches tests winch system with 80-ton braking force

20 different braking characteristics for a wide range of objects to be tested. DROMEC Winches does not shy away from this challenge! An international organization will use the winch for an extremely safe system. A safety system in terms of accuracy, speed, power, complexity, and sensitivity. A great challenge for the engineers at DROMEC Winches!

Sander, control technician:
‘This project was challenging in terms of complexity, especially in the areas of safety and visualization.’

Constant tension software

The winch is used in a testing and evaluation center for various mobile objects. Essentially, it is a pulling or hauling winch with a highly accurate tracking system of the object. The results of the moving object must not be influenced by the operation of the winch. Therefore, DROMEC Winches has developed sensitive constant tension software to track the object.

80-ton braking force

The object is tracked with a variable pulling force of up to 1000 kg and a speed of 480 meters per minute. In case of emergency or uncontrolled movement of the object, the winch immediately grips the object with a variable braking force of up to 80 tons.

Separate spooling machine

The winch system has an electric e-drive with separate brakes. The system can also spool various types of synthetic ropes. The winch system will deliver with a separate spooling machine for winding the synthetic ropes on and off. DROMEC also provides the foundation structure with guide pulleys.

Control software

The control software for this project is a high-end web-based platform with a high level of visual user-friendliness. The winch system is well protected during use with additional safety software using various sensors. A project with a long duration but ingenious end result!

DROMEC winches. Your movement in good hands.

Dynamic and Innovative in winches, winchsystems, controls and software. With our enthousiastic team, we develop  from small till  very big & complex systems with the highest demands in terms of safety and ease of use. We also work very closely with certified body’s as DNVGL, BV, ABS, Lloyds so your winches and systems can be completely certified at our own company together with you.

It often starts with a good idea, preferably on a piece of scrap paper. After an initial consultation, we prepare one or more proposals, including a target price and preliminary drawing. Your idea or problem, always remains central in this. If the feeling on both sides is good, we start. Thanks to our own inhouse developed and written project software, your project stays in the picture and under control from start to finish, including the planning and delivery time. We are LloydsRegister ISO 9001 certified.
