Mobile Shaft Winders

Self-driving and autonomous inspection and auxiliary winch.

The mobile shaft winder is used as an auxiliary winch for the inspection of hoisting shafts and as an emergency winch for rescuing persons. It is designed in compliance with relevant mining regulations and is approved by the mining authority.

Because it is licensed for driving in public road transport it can be used universally on various mineshaft systems. Like a mobile crane, the mobile shaft winder can be driven into the required working position via a either rotatable or static boom. Communication between personnel situated in the conveyance and the operator of the shaft winder is possible over a phone, whose cable is integrated into the hoisting rope.
