As the world's leading producer of deck equipment and fishing machinery, MARCO has developed market's first-ever main boom topping winch with disc brake acting directly on the drum. The MARCO W-1945KBT topping winch will allow to increase main boom lifting and lowering manoeuvre’s efficiency and safety. The new topping winch model has already been tested and installed in several purse seiners like: Albacora´s Galerna Lau, Grupo Calvo´s Monteraiola, Grupo Jardan´s Reina de la Paz and Pevasa´s Playa de Anzoras.
The MARCO W-1945KBT winch includes a triple safety system, based on a combination of hydraulic counterbalance, locking pawl and a disk brake system that acts directly on the drum, which allows to double the braking capacity of other auxiliary winches available on the market.
Its high pull capacity, increases the speed and effectiveness of main boom lifting and lowering, enabling fishing manoeuvres to be carried out more safely and efficiently. In case needed, brake system will be able to be used for other winch purposes.
Like all MARCO equipment, the W-1945KBT main boom topping winch stands out for its compact design and robustness and has been designed to ease its maintenance and reduce operation costs. With that aim, winches´ brake discs are interchangeable with MARCO’s WS series Purse Seine Winches’ discs and a large part of its drive components can be interchanged with standard MARCO auxiliary winch models.
