Mechanical tools known as industrial winches serve the purpose of pulling loads, executing actions like drawing in, letting out, or regulating rope or cable tension. This typically involves coiling a rope or cable around a drum or barrel.

In some scenarios, the winch can be directly mounted on equipment. However, achieving proper height alignment may necessitate elevation in other cases. This specific requirement often calls for a custom winch support frame. Opting for a custom design empowers you to tailor a solution to your precise needs, thereby enhancing functionality and efficiency beyond what off-the-shelf options can provide and consequently, you get exactly what you require.
Recently, Dynamic Engineering Consultants undertook the design of a custom winch support frame for a client. In this project, we assessed the pulling force by evaluating the geared motor and drum combination. This evaluation utilized specifications of the geared motor and winch gearing. This was because the pulling force served as the foundational element for the structural design of the winch support frame.
Because our design adheres rigorously to Australian standards and supplier recommendations, we also include specific provisions for hold-down bolts. To provide you with a clearer understanding, you’ll also find visual representations below, including a side view and a 3D depiction of the winch frame.
In this project, we harnessed the power of the Spacegass TM software, further enhancing our analysis with a comprehensive FEA study. For a deeper dive into the technical specifics, visit https://www.dynamicengineering.com.au/industrial/2014/04/18/design-certification/.
Focusing on the frame design is just one critical safety aspect in the broader winch system. For further safety guidelines, refer to https://www.commerce.wa.gov.au/worksafe. Following these protocols safeguards everyone involved, significantly reducing potential accidents or risks and establishing a secure environment for employees and stakeholders.
