Industrial winches are mechanical devices used to pull a heavy load, typically horizontally. They are used to pull in, let out, or otherwise adjust the tension of a rope or cable. Simple designs consist of a rope or cable wound around a drum or barrel. The drum rotates in a horizontal axis and may be powered by steam, a hydraulic motor, or an electric motor. Industrial winches are designed to move heavy loads and come in a variety of configurations.
We market a wide range of winch products and are able to cover just about any application requiring the use of winches. Compact, robust and built to last, these winches are designed for use in the toughest environments.
Brevini Australia, hold an extensive stock of gear modules from the Brevini Power Transmission group of manufacturers. To this, we add value through Australian design and manufacture of housing, shafts and bearings, as well as design and manufacture of full systems, including turn-key projects; we put ourselves forward as a one-stop source for power transmission solutions.
We provide Planetary Gearboxes as Shaft mounted planetary gears, Foot mounted planetary gears, Flange mounted planetary gears, and Planetary gears for slewing drives
Planetary winch drives
Planetary reduction gear units, with rotating outer casing, designed to be fitted into the winch drum. On the input side, they are equipped with a multidisc fail-safe brake.
These winch drives give the freedom to design the rope drum and frame of any size and to incorporate any special features required. The driving motors, electrical or hydraulic, are fitted on the input side through the Brevini universal flange system.
We use, supply and recommend Brevini Winches. The range covers: Brevini Winches, Pullmaster Winches and Custom Made Winches.
Are shaped to allow a wide range of applications. These compact units are quality made to provide high hydraulic and mechanical efficiency. Brevini Winches are also characterised by: compactness and ease of installation.
All units have hydraulic motors, either axial piston or orbital style, totally integrated into the winch drum together with a planetary design reduction unit, housed in the drum. Line pull capabilities for Brevini Winches are in the range from 0.6 kN to 66 kN.
Pullmaster Planetary Winches
Feature an automatic disc brake, which has both static and dynamic brake functions. A counter balance or brake valve is not needed for smooth and positive control of a decelerating load.These winches are available in three basic types: equal speed in both directions, rapid reverse, free fall and recovery winches.
Custom Made Winches
Provide our customers with unique solutions, designed for reliability and long service life. All units feature an innovative design and are made using the highest quality materials. Brevini design engineers provide optimum solutions for specialised application. Custom made winches can be equipped with hydraulic motors. Options available include motor controls, rotary limit switches, clutches, cable tensioners, grooved drums and various marine survey certifications
