South African company Parnis Manufacturing recently delivered a 23-tonne, three-metre single-drum winder to a gold mining company in Canada.

The unit will be used as a man winder and service hoist and will be employed to reach a depth of 2 000m. Boilermakers fabricated the drum using S355J2+N steel, a raw material that can be sourced either from a local supplier or imported, depending on availability and the demands of the project’s timeframe.

“Winder manufacture is certainly a complex engineering task, with the final product comprising a drum, two brake carriers and two brake discs, as well as a shaft, gearbox, couplings, bearings, and bearing bases.
