Compact and powerful with high torque: the right gear unit for your winch

Regardless of your winch operation requirements, or whether you need it for bucket wheel excavators, stackers, cranes, anchor systems or underwater infrastructure: Our X series industrial bevel gear and bevel-helical gear units and the XP series industrial planetary gear units provide the right torque for your application.

For example, in a bucket wheel excavator, the bucket wheel is mounted on an adjustable boom to adapt the machining height. This is raised and lowered by a hoisting winch drive. Large and volatile forces impact on the bucket wheel boom:

  • the boom's deadweight, including the bucket wheel, wheel drive, boom conveyor belt and potentially its drive system
  • the weight of the material in the bucket and on the boom conveyor belt
  • the bearing loads of the vertical part of the cutting forces, which the rotating bucket wheel exercises on the surface
  • the vibrations of the entire system

Winch drives also have to withstand considerable forces in anchor systems: loads of up to 275 tonnes and steel cables up to 1,500 meters long, with a diameter of over 60 mm are common.

Our industrial gear units provide the flexibility and durability that your winch drive needs under these kinds of extreme conditions. The high-torque, reliable and safe solutions with the X series industrial gear units and the XP series industrial planetary gear units ensure powerful and reliable motion. For large torques of up to 4,000 kNm you can also use a combination of our XP series industrial planetary gear units and X series bevel-helical gear units.
