Muir Windlasses Australia has launched its latest composite fiber housing to replace aluminum housings for its range of horizontal anchor winches.
The idea was to develop a one-size-fits-all housing.
“We also needed to eliminate a number of issues regarding painting, the paint finish, corrosion and electrolysis in operation,” said Production Manager Ian Stocks. “The composite fiber model we developed addressed these issues while maintaining the same strength and load carrying capabilities of the original aluminium housing.”
The new housing features a gel-coated finish, which means it is available in different colors. It is 3 kilograms lighter than the original aluminium housing.
