# Hand winches with worm gear

The hand winches with worm gears are known for their robust construction. The cable winch can be used either as a hoisting winch or a pulling winch. The high quality manual winches are equipped with a load pressure brake. This brake keeps the load at any required height during lifting and lowering. These manual winches have one of the best braking systems in which 50% of the braking is done by friction in the worm gear. This greatly reduces the load on the pressure brake. The load capacities are calculated on the basis of the first rope layer on the drum. You can operate the winches manually and thus use them in all environments such as the offshore and marine industries.
