By using a rescue hoist, a helicopter can rescue persons from hard-to-reach areas such as a mountain range or from the sea. Equally, cargo winches can help delivering loads such as food and water to crisis regions that are hard to access by other means. Jenoptik produces extremely stable and safe rescue hoists and cargo winches for helicopters.
Our mechatronics expert engineers understand how mechanics, electronics and IT work together: They design and develop rescue hoists and cargo winches as complex mechatronic systems that are highly reliable and meet – and many cases exceed – all the required safety regulations as well as other standards that are not compulsory.
We supply winches with various drive technologies from hydraulic to electric drives. For example, we produce hydraulic winch systems for operations performed by the NH90, the transport helicopter used by NATO. These winch systems can transport loads of up to 400 kilograms.
Our experienced customer service team will assist you right from the start: On a 24/7 AOG basis we reliably service and maintain your rescue hoists and cargo winches on a regular basis according to our customers' demands.
