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.

"Ergonomics"

Human factors and ergonomics (HF&E) aka comfort design, functional design, and user-friendly systems, is a multidisciplinary field incorporating contributions from psychology, engineering, biomechanics, mechanobiology, industrial design, physiology and anthropometry. In essence it is the study of designing equipment and devices that fit the human body and its cognitive abilities. The two terms "human factors" and "ergonomics" are essentially synonymous.
Human factors and ergonomics is concerned with the "fit" between the user, equipment and their environments. It takes account of the user's capabilities and limitations in seeking to ensure that tasks, functions, information and the environment suit each user.
