Lebus International Engineers GmbH was established by Karl Seidenather in 1962. It is a sister company of Lebus International Inc. of the USA and also has sister companies in the UK and Japan.
Lebus International manufactures drums and rope spooling systems for a wide range of onshore and offshore winching applications.
Lebus designs and manufactures wire rope spooling systems based on the original Lebus® system. Used on many of the world’s largest offshore vessels and structures, our parallel grooving geometry ensures even and uniform spooling every time. We supply engineered drums or split sleeves for bolting/welding onto our customers‘ own drums. Split sleeves offer an economic alternative to a grooved new drum and can future-proof your winching system in case of change of rope later. Sleeves can be easily retrofitted in-situ. Lebus also produces ancillary devices to aid smooth spooling, including automatical fleet angle compensators and mechanical diamond screw levelwinders.
THE LEBUS® SPLIT SLEEVE SYSTEM
The LEBUS® split-sleeve system consists of a pair of outer shells that are bolted or welded onto a smooth drum to provide a grooving pattern. Either helical or LEBUS® parallel grooves can be carved into the sleeves.
As with all LEBUS® drums, the grooving in split sleeves is engineered to match the specific rope construction, diameter and length, and to suit the application.
THE LEBUS® WINCH DRUM
Complete drum with flanges, machine-finished.
•The groove is cut directly into the body of the drum.
•The flanges are either welded or screw-bolted.
•The groove is available as either LEBUS®-groove or helical-groove.
•Groove geometry is determined by rope construction, diameter and length, and by application.
•The drum is provided with the requested mounting dimensions to fit the flanges by welding or screw bolting.
•The flanges are manufactured and mounted by the customer.
THE LEBUS® DIAMOND SCREW LEVELWINDER
If the optimum fleet angle (between 0.25° and 1.5°) cannot be obtained, an additional spooling device such as a LEBUS® diamond screw levelwinder must be installed.
With the LEBUS® diamond screw levelwinder fitted in conjunction with the LEBUS® special parallel grooving on the winch drum, perfectly controlled spooling is guaranteed regardless of the number of layers on the drum.
