Capstans

Capstans or warping heads are used on board or on shore to haul loads, to pilot a ship into a lock, to moor the vessel, etc. The steering is very simple: haul, veer, emergency stop.

We can supply electrically or hydraulically driven capstans with a nominal pull of 15 kN up to 300 kN. In addition to the standard vertical variety, we can design and deliver horizontal versions as well as more specialized types to meet individual requirements. Capstans of the planetary type can be delivered too.
