Working principle of wire rope capstan

The internal working mechanism of the capstan is as follows: the electric power from the ship first drives the motor, and then the motor drives the drum, which in turn drives the driving shaft, which in turn drives the planetary gear, thus producing a strong torque. The torque is then transmitted back to the drum, which drives the capstan. There is a clutch between the motor and the reducer that can be switched on and off by a handle. The brake unit is inside the drum, and when the noose is tightened, the drum automatically locks.

Horizontal capstan winch VS vertical capstan winch

Horizontal windlass is commonly used in merchant ships. The vertical windlass is also called vertical capstan, and its power part is located below the deck to save the deck area. In recent large ships, due to the large size of the windlass, the bow deck is difficult to accommodate, and it is difficult to operate, so some vertical windlass is also used.

Vertical capstan saves space, but the design process is more cumbersome, horizontal windlass occupies space, but the effect is much better than vertical type!
