This week we again supplied an EWA-650-KBV wire anchorwinch. Due to the onboard situation, the requirement was to position the winch directly near the living area, to realise extra free deck space.
Because of this a modification to the bandbrake handle was needed. Now the handle points horizontally forward instead of the standard vertical position.
Also a 35 x 7 non rotating cable is spooled on the drum with right pre-tension. This cable is equipped with an open spelter socket to make anchor assembly quite easy.
Are you looking for a standard anchor winch or are you looking for a special execution? Dromec provides a solution!
In the field of spooling machines, Dromec already designed and built many different versions however, this EPW-750-400-KTPF was special again.
This so called “Electric Constant Tension System” can work in a forcerange between 7 and 17 mT and can handle a reelweight of 40 mT !
Via Dromec’s wired full color HMI, the operator has realtime information about adjusted and realtime speed and torque values on each specific cable layer.
This spooling machine will be applied on board of Deme’s Spartacus for rewinding the winches with new steel cables under the right pre-tension. Because of the special design, the cable can leave the machine at several locations so all ships winches can be reached while the machine itself can remain in 1 fixed location.
