Winches SA are manufacturers of custom designed hoists as well as suppliers of electric wire hoists and chain hoists.



A basic hoist has two important characteristics that define it: Lifting medium and power type. The lifting medium is either wire rope, wrapped around a drum, or load chain, raised by a pulley with a special profile to engage the chain. The power can be provided by different means. Common means are hydraulic, electrical or air driven motors. Both the wire rope hoist and chain hoist have been in common since the 1800s.
