Cable-pulling machines

The main advantages of the cable capstans are due to the double capstan. The force is transferred to the rope via two powered sheaves and not via the rope drum.

The principle – the main advantages – are:

  • Constant pulling force right to the end
  • Constant speed
  • High degree of rope protection thanks to round sheaves
  • Rope service life of many years
  • Automatic rope unrolling
