Australian Certified Winches has 25 years of experience designing and manufacturing custom winches. A custom winch is a winch that is not readily available off the shelf and is custom designed for a specific application. As Australian Certified Winches have been making custom winches for 25 years, we have a very large library of custom winches. These can be used to save on design time and manufacturing costs.
Our custom Winches can be divided into many categories but the four top level are how the custom winch is driven. These are Electric Winches, Hydraulic Winches, Pneumatic Winches and Hand / Manual Winches.
ACW start the process by involving themselves in the clients full process requirement as with custom winches there is always more than one way to do the job. Once the concept is formed, it is handed to our team of highly experienced custom winch engineers to develop the final design, ensuring all required standards are investigated thoroughly and met or exceeded.
Custom winches can also be a standard winch that is combined with other items such as other winches, a diesel powerpack making a self contained winch or a skid frame with a control station and operator protection. In some cases we take a standard winch off the shelf and modify it to suit the customer’s specification.
All Mine Winders and Man Riding winches are considered Custom Winches as each application and specification has to be assessed and complied to separately. While we might have an existing design that is suitable, all supporting documentation has to be re-done for the new application.
All Custom Winches are fully tested and commissioned in the workshop prior to delivery. Any Custom winch up to 10 Tonnes capacity can be dynamically tested on our purpose built winch test tower.
When we design custom winches, we take into account all aspects of the lifetime of the winch, ensuring not only the longevity of the structural design, but the availability of spare parts.
All our Custom Winches are supplied with full installation, operation and maintenance manuals and have a minimum 12 month warranty.
When Australian Certified Winches take on a project the one contact will see your custom winch from concept through to commissioning and after sales service.
