ACE Spooling Winches and Reels

We manufacture a range of standard and bespoke spooling winches, designed to facilitate the installation or removal of wire, rope or umbilicals from winches to storage reels under constant back tension.

Our spooling winches are designed to rotate reels of wire, rope or umbilical. Removable shafts act as an axle and can be supplied in various diameters to support the reel through a hole in the centre.

The winches can be diesel, electric or pneumatically driven. Smaller units are supplemented with external HPUs while units with a capacity of 50te or higher have integrated power systems.


Original manufacturer’s reels are not designed to take a lot of back tension, likewise spooling winches have their limitations as well. Our spooling winch and traction winch combination provides the solution.

The original manufacturer’s reel with the product will be installed onto our spooling winch. Our traction winch is then used to generate the high back tension required to spool the product onto the client’s equipment.
