Dymot Specializes in the Design and Manufacture of a full range of Winches and Winching Equipment for a variety of winching application.

Dymot's main area of expertise is winches for conveyor tensioning applications. Our Automatic Take-Up Systems are widely used in the mining industry and involve using electric winches, strain gauges and programmable electronic controllers to control the start up and running tensions on any conveyor. These systems are extensively used underground where the conventional gravity tensioning systems are difficult to accommodate. There are currently over 250 systems operating both underground and overland.

Our Safety Hand Winch range employs a automatic clamping and ratchet type brake that is never disengaged thus ensuring complete safety when raising or lowering a load. These winches are designed to conform to British Standard 3701. Thses winches are extensively used on gravity counter weight tensioning systems for conveyors.

Dymot also specialises in Rail Car Moving Systems (both endless rope & single type), Hydraulic Winches, Rope Sheaves and Grease Pumps. We have designed and manufactured large Barge moving winches for mining plants. We have also manufactured a range of Stage Winches for Shaft Sinking and Tower Building applications.
