Technical information
To build winches, it is very important to choose materials with low weight, high strength and corrosion resistance. For this purpose, the surface is specially coated by chemical and electrical processes. In this example, it is particularly important to only use components that are suited for heavy duty, marine use, e.g. motor and transmission. Commercially available parts (starter motor) would be quite useful and cost effective, but not very suitable due to the strenous requirements on board.


The transmission
The mechanically highly efficient transmissions of LOFRANS winches have been designed specifically for the marine sector. The ratio of 1/50 to 1/75 is a good compromise between efficiency and speed. The long-lasting lubricating oil protects the internal components of the transmission against wear and reduces operating noise.


The electric motors
The electric motors have also been developed for the marine sector. They have specific features: axles, screws, nut and sleeve are made of stainless steel.
Most LOFRANS electric motors are connected in series. This has, in comparison with less expensive permanent magnet motors, the advantage of a very high starting torque.


The choise is yours: electric or manual
There are two main reasons to select a manual windlass. The simple installation without electrical work and the price speak in favour of a manual windlass. The energy that is necessary to operate an electric motor winch on board of your vessel isn’t a problem nowadays. Modern boats are equipped with suitable batteries and the electric windlass run only a few minutes in any case. The advantages of electric windlasses are safety, less physical effort and quick hauling. Meanwhile, already 95% of all anchor winches are electrically operated.


You can also choose between vertical or horizontal?
There are two different types of windlasses: vertical and horizontal windlasses. Which design meets your specific needs, must be carefully examined.
Vertical windlasses. The main advantage of vertical windlasses lies in the compact design, since the electric motor and the gearbox are mounted below deck. Another advantage is the lower weight and price. The attractive design makes the windlasses suitable for every type of boat. A popular model is the vertical Project windlass (X1 / X2 / X3 / X4).
Horizontal windlasses. These are the classic anchor winches: practical and functional. Usually they are completely assembled on deck. Typical horizontal windlasses from Lofrans include the models Dorado, Cobra, Cayman, Tigres and Falkon. All the mechanical components, the transmission and the electric motor are protected by the body. The windlass can also be installed in the anchor locker.
