Our current standard winches are the result of specially developed products originally designed for specific applications. They are the result of well thought-out technology and know-how that is constantly being perfected. As an experienced hoist manufacturer, we offer the right solution for a wide range of applications. Our electric and manual rope winches not only offer an extensive range of applications, they also set the market standard.
Our standard winches of today derive from products that were originally developed for specifically defined applications. They are the result of well thought-out technology and know-how that is constantly being perfected. We offer the right solution for the most diversified applications. Our hand and electric winches not only offer an extensive range of applications, they also set the market standard.
We supply tested safety – both standardised and customised.
Our cable winches are easily and safely to handle, they are characterized by optimally coordinated sequences when moving loads of all kinds and are extremely smooth. They are mostly insensitive to environmental influences. First-class workmanship in combination with high-quality mechanics and their typical encapsulated design ensure an above-average service life. Our winches are designed in such a way that production processes at the respective location are only disturbed by unplanned maintenance work in exceptional cases. Every winch to be delivered is subjected to a complete quality check.
With more than 155 years of experience in the manufacture of manual rope winches, we manufacture their main components from grey cast iron and spheroidal graphite iron in our modern foundry. In addition to serial production, we are able to flexibly meet the demands of the market. Our battery winches belong to the compact hand rope winches and are produced entirely according to customer requirements. They are suitable for use with screwdriver tools and have a dynamic self-locking worm gear. Our manual winches, as well as our electric winches, have an EG-type examination.
Our electric winches are also characterised by their compact design and also have an encapsulation of the entire drive. An extensive range of additional equipment enables almost any adjustment to be made. As a system supplier in the winch sector, we offer complete solutions from a single source, as well as the smallest individual parts. Our spectrum ranges from rope pulleys and double rope pulleys to hook tackle and turnbuckles. In addition to our standard winches, we also develop tailor-made special winches based on individual requirements.
We supply our cable winches with tested safety - as standard and individually.
Our electrically driven cable winches are also characterised by their compact design and also have an encapsulation of the entire drive. In our WE standard range we offer five different sizes, which form the basis for all electric winch projects. A wide selection of additional equipment enables almost any adaptation to suit your requirements. In order to ensure the safety and health of persons under suspended loads, we have specifically extended our proven standard series in winch construction in this area. In addition, we supply winches from the WE series up to protection class 65, which are ideal for maritime applications.
While our standard cable winches already cover a wide range of applications, we also develop tailor-made special winches based on individual requirements. This is one of our core competencies - to develop the right product for every conceivable application. Be it defined loads, rope speeds or specific environmental conditions: We develop the right solution in close cooperation with our customers. For example, we offer special cable winches that can withstand extreme environmental conditions such as those in the polar or desert regions.
A winch often represents one element of an overall requirement. For this reason, it is of crucial importance that the requirements for the winch are precisely and correctly determined without losing sight of the entire project. With our many years of experience, we have acquired a further field of competence with the development of integrated total solutions. As a system supplier in the winch sector, we offer everything from a single source - both complete solutions and the smallest individual parts. Our spectrum ranges from rope sheaves and double rope sheaves to hook tackle and turnbuckles.
We supply our winches with tested safety - standard and individual.
We have been producing hand rope winches for more than 100 years and continue to manufacture their main components with special care in our own modern foundry from grey cast iron and nodular cast iron.
Our standard electric cable winches are compact, the entire drive is encapsulated. We demand the highest quality from our winches, which is what makes them so reliable.
An extensive range of additional equipment enables almost any adaptation to the wishes and requirements of our customers.
Even our standard winches cover a very broad spectrum of possible applications.
For requirements which, with regard to the defined loads, the desired rope speed or certain environmental conditions, have to be met outside of the
of the standards, we create the corresponding special solutions.
We work closely with our customers and obtain comprehensive information about their specific requirements and the existing framework conditions.
In this way we ensure that a KÖSTER special cable winch also functions optimally and satisfies our customers.
As the only system supplier in the winch sector, we supply everything from a single source - from the smallest individual part to an integrated overall solution.
We produce the individual rope sheave and all other accessories for our rope winches ourselves in our own foundry with high precision.
We focus on the wishes of our customers. Our service offers are used in the planning phase and accompany the entire life cycle of our products in the customer's company.
The scope of our after-sales service is determined by the concluded maintenance contract.
If required, our service also includes the delivery and professional installation of almost all spare parts.
