New Winches from PCM
Thursday, 19 July 2001
PCM/Pfaff-silberblau Ltd will launch two important new winch products at PLASA 2001 - the Tau Winch, specifically designed for flying people and aerial performance, and the Delta Winch - for the fast, efficient accurate scenery moving.

With the increasing popularity of aerial theatre and performance, PCM has designed and developed The Tau electric winch - the first winch to be designed and manufactured specifically for this specialist task. It features a host of inherent safety features, including a double brake system - one on the load, one on the motor, double limit switches, encoder feedback for accurate positioning and monitoring of over-speed and electronic overload protection.

The Delta winch is a quiet, very safe, accurate and durable device for flying scenery and set pieces in all performance situations. The near silent operation makes the delta winch ideal for operas and classical shows. Built to German VBG 70 standards, the Delta Winch’s features include double limit switches, encoder feedback and variable speed options. A unique feature of the Delta Winch is the Zero Fleet angle. The entire winch travels along its mounting skid, ensuring that the rope always leaves the drum at 90 degrees eliminating any fleet angle to the pulley. It also has two electric motors, two gearboxes and two brakes running in tandem to reach VBG 70/BGV C1 German safety standard. Each motor unit is capable of driving the winch completely independently, ensuring maximum safety.

PCM are exhibiting on stand F18.
