    Mast base preload AUToLOCK™ from Equiplite

    Innovation already used 8,000 nautical miles. Broked the transatlantic records…

    Mast base preload AUToLOCK™ from Equiplite. Equiplite WEDgLOCk™ is, universal for all (mast bace block) brands.

    What is an WEDgLOCk™, The ultimate solution for organizing and storing halyards. With WEDgLOCk™, you can clean, save and easily preload standard halyards from 250-1500 kg without the need for expensive lock stoppers. The Equiplite WEDgLOCks™ is mainly to be able to put away all halyards with the setup mast base winch that are not in use.

  2. Polymeren Equiplite hybride plain bearings VHLi™.Coefficients of Friction and Surfaces
    Polymeren Equiplite hybride plain bearings VHLi™.Coefficients of Friction and Surfaces

    The High-Tech performance polymeren Equiplite® hybride plain bearings VHLi™.

    Coefficients of Friction and Surfaces.

    Sometimes answering technical questions in a meeting and not coming up with the center/ our hard of the block. The difference between a sliding bearing and a ceramic ball bearing. The friction coefficient is now only 6%.

    As a good example if you have an travler car (VO 65) 8T MWL block | In a position that is trimmed 24/7, you will feel the difference of the 6% friction from the plain bearing.

    This comes as an example that there is up to say 8 max 12 knots of wind and a very low load to move the Traveler car. BUT the cover is there. As the loads increase you will see that 6% friction shoot down immediately. the difference than of the sliding bearing and a ball bearing can be neglected.

    Sailers conclusion:
    For racing yachts (VO 65/ open 60/ TP52 ) and than for the position traveler car/ main sheet use the ball-bearing. For all other positions the polymeren hybride plain bearings VHLi™.

    Because; the friction coefficient is so little, the advantages are so great to have sliding bearing standard everywhere.

    + More durable, less wear and tear to equipment, extending equipment lifetimes and lowering significant maintenance costs
    + Weight reduction of at least 60%
    + Very high loads
    + 60% compact hardware
    + The bearing utilize advanced high load low
    friction polymer bearing technology, giving unparalled loaded bearing
    efficiency of at least 94% . (with dry operation, without need for
    lubrication). Snatch blocks have unmatched impact and wear resistance

    According to the EKH-Code of practice ISO 9001 - VCA **-EKH. Ensures approval of both marine surveyors and insurance companies.
