Dana SAC Australia has released the Brevini BWE Series winch range, ideal for use in mining, construction and material-handling applications and in other mobile machinery.

In line with the continuing product development programme of Dana SAC Australia, the company announced the release of latest series of high performance Brevini winches. The BWE Series winch range is ideal for use in mining, construction and material-handling applications, as well as other mobile machinery and stationary industrial applications.

Each winch in this new series features a compact, high-speed piston motor for efficient operation, and the range will offer 13 different sizes to support lift capacities from 990 kg to 30t. The BWE winch range has a modular design and expands the capability of Dana’s current product range for off-highway and stationary industrial applications to cover more applications. All the winches in the range are suitable for electric motor input, both for mobile and stationary applications.

Offering lift capacities from 8.5t to 16t, the first four of the new winches are designed for medium-sized crawler cranes and rough-terrain cranes.

Explains Greg Bunn, Dana SAC Australia’s managing director, “Safety and performance are important considerations in construction applications. To meet these needs, we have designed and engineered this next generation of winches with best-in-class safety, efficiency, and control.

“Dana’s new winch range includes a fully integrated system that provides end users with the tools necessary to avoid damage to the winch and the crane, and most importantly, protect personnel on the jobsite.”

Smaller winch sizes in the new series will be introduced in late 2019, while larger versions to support lift capacities from 22 to 30t will be available in 2020. The larger winches are designed for drill rigs and rubber tyre gantry cranes along with numerous stationary industrial applications in marine and off-shore drilling.  The winches meet safety certification standards for major international organisations governing these applications.
