In many mines, the transport of loads through shafts is necessary. Our shaft winches are used to transport materials and are also applied as service and rescue winches.

  • Narrow spaces, great depths and heavy material are the cornerstones around which everything revolves in mine construction. Smooth processes and systems are particularly important when working underground. We design and manufacture our winches in accordance with the highest safety standards. They are even more essential when our services and rescue winches are transporting manpower. It is of the utmost importance to us that our systems work reliably. The components used have been tried and tested over many years.

The challenge

When loads or people are transported to areas deep underground, access is often restricted: shafts often provide the only way to get to the construction site. The limited space conditions require a strong and at the same time safe solution which occupies little space. It must be suitable for heavy material and transporting people. Our winches meet these requirements due to their individual design and the constant adaption of the tensile loads.

In mining, access to the site is often provided via shafts. Our winches transport materials and manpower safely and reliably within these shafts.

Solutions and applications

Our broad portfolio of winches provides for countless application possibilities. It enables the efficient and safe transport of material, machines and people, even underground. Depending on the given situation, we deliver winches designed and manufactured for the customer´s needs. Thereby, rope lengths, tensile loads and standard requirements are specifically tailored to the respective construction site.
