      Capstans

      Used on the ship for mooring or warping operations, the capstan consists of a vertically mounted capstan head of varying diameters that is rotated usually electromechanically (or hydraulically) in order to apply a load/force on the mooring ropes or cables. FEC has furnished capstans to various shipbuilders for U.S. Navy and Coast Guard vessels and continues to expand this product line having recently added the Virginia Class Submarine (VCS) capstans to our commodities list.

    Winches

      Winches

      Similar to capstans in some respects, winches usually involve a rotating drum which also allows stowage of ropes or cables. FEC furnishes a variety of Navy standard winches in accordance with build-to-print NAVSEA drawings including gypsy, saddle, spanwire, barricade, and stern dock winches, and many more.

      Cranes

      Integral to our shipboard hoist product line, is FEC's crane capability. If your hoisting needs also require the related bridge beams, runway beams, trolleys, end trucks, etc., or just a monorail system, FEC has the know-how to fulfill your hoisting needs.

      Similar to our specialized weapons hoists, FEC has produced unique weapons handling systems such as the Trident Missile Service Unit (MSU) Crane as well as a munitions handling system for the SeaFox Surface Mine Neutralization System (SMNS). FEC also has bridge crane designs that can be modified to suit the shipboard application. Whether air, electric, hydraulic, or a combination thereof, FEC can furnish your crane/handling system to meet the desired lifting capacities, coverage areas, vertical lift heights and speeds as per our Navy customers' needs. Applicable crane and/or weapons and material handling requirements as governed by ship and procurement specifications can be met (e.g., MIL SPECS, NAVSEA OP-4, NSTM 700, ASME b30.2, API 2C, CMAA No. 70, etc.).

      Elevator Fork Truck Guards

      As a full service elevator supplier to our Navy and Coast Guard customers, FEC has a full complement of related parts to safely keep shipboard elevators up and running and cargo flowing. Along those lines, FEC provides a variety of elevator safety gear to meet the rigorous demands of shipboard weapons and material handling. One such feature is the elevator fork truck guard, an FEC signature product for over twenty years. Fork truck guard assemblies are installed as a module flush with the surrounding deck structure and extend and retract to help prevent forklift trucks from running into elevator trunks. FEC can furnish entirely new guard assemblies and/or replacement parts depending on customer needs.
