TSR High Load Aft Organisers
By nature, high load deck organisers are required to divert very highly loaded lines at extremely large angles. Coupled with modern build materials and the need for precise line leads, organisers are often over engineered to prevent structural failure but required custom specification early on in the build schedule (not always possible), which often left teams using organisers that were not quite correct with poor line leads or very simple and crude in their construction.
Spinlock's new 'TSR Aft Organisers' use a modular design and assembly to allow builders to accurately space sheaves in the precise location later in the build when they are ready. Rather than having to commit to early custom builds, the TSR is delivered with over length rails that can then cut to length and move sheaves to the exact location for perfect alignment and high line speeds. Helping to overcome the lack of strength in cored laminate decks, a central shaft has been designed through the deck and the sheaves, designed to spread load evenly into the laminate, it also allows for on deck removal for ease of access and servicing.
Using 20mm sheaves, Tulip shaped in design, reduces friction from the vertical plane, whilst plain bearings offer not only smooth rotation but high load carrying. Constructed as light as possible, 'TSR Organisers' are very low profile to seamlessly fit into both modern deck design and reduce windage as much as possible. Sheaves can be moved, added, removed and endless lines easily dropped into the system when needed.
Commenting on the new 'TSR Organiser' CEO Chris Hill comments "as always with our design, the Spinlock team have taken a product which was ready for improvement and condensed the design criteria into a clear route for a new high load organiser that satisfies users at a multitude of levels including OEM, Race, Superyacht and Performance cruise".
METS 2014 sees the launch of Spinlock’s new 'Sense' Range of mobile load cells. Ultra compact and designed to be quickly attached between any two loaded points, be it a fibre rope or hardware, the new 'Sense' range then displays the data on either a new colour OLED Screen or wirelessly over long distance, via the latest Bluetooth, to a mobile device such as a smart phone, tablet or PC.
Real-time actual Load for the selected line is displayed continuously under way, Peak Load displayed both during and after the session and is then stored in the all new Sense-App. Sense-App allows the user to record data about the session, such as name of application, geo location, conditions, add an image and share/export the data for further analysis. Sense-App also allows settings to be placed on the device such as ‘ Load Alarms’, maximum and minimum, for load critical applications such as running back stays or even Super Yacht mooring lines.
