Einhorn Engineering provides design solutions for unique, marine winch system challenges. Our core expertise is in designing prototype, towing, and load-handling winch systems for situations that call for more than the standard winch arrangement. We can supply winch designs in hydraulic, electric, or diesel drive with a range of control options. Our past designs have featured drum sizes from 18″ to 72″ in both smooth shell and grooved designs. For weight-critical applications, we have provided winch systems fabricated from aluminum using both 5XXX series and 6XXX alloys.

Our past designs have featured fail-safe, internal, wet-disc type and drum-band type parking brakes, as well as caliper-style dynamic brakes. Hydraulic winches can be configured for either open-circuit or hydro-static closed-circuit arrangements.

Winches can be designed to the specific standards required by any of the classing societies.
