Rotzler Tarvos / snatch block
Dynamic and powerful
The Tarvos snatch block is used to increase the power of winches and doubles their drag force to up to 60 tons. It is used in emergencies or for pulling of heavy machinery in case that the winch itself cannot provide the necessary force.
The dynamic and powerful design of the snatch block underlines both, the strength and lightweight of this new product. The structure protects less robust components from damage in the everyday use. The two identical die-cast aluminium parts saves weight by a smart design and therefore ensure a light weight for all of the block sizes. Due to this design the use of the snatch blocks becomes possible, even for the biggest one with a maximum size of 650mm.

simplify the understanding of design Glossary
Industrial design or product design is focused on concepts for industrially produced products. It‘s mainly divided into two sections: a) the designing of consumption goods and b) the designing of capital goods. Consumption goods are furniture, sanitary products, and electronic products, while capital goods involve design development from product plants and medicine and laboratory equipment. It‘s concentrated on products for professional users. On these projects the designer works often in interdisciplinary teams. Its responsibilities are structure studies, brand development, optimization of the function while taking into account the needs of the target group. A designer is an creator for series-produced products and not an artist who is creating a single item.
