Winch and rigging system for David Robinson’s Windward Calm sculpture

Winch and rigging system for David Robinson’s Windward Calm sculpture

This is the result of an inspiring work by artist David Robinson at Gordon & Leslie’s Diamond Health Care Center in Vancouver.

Our Windward Calm Riggings System include a custom winch that can allow the sculpture go up and down with a speed of 0.1 ft/min.

The winch is composed of a 0.37 kW gear motor, a double stage transmissions, a drum of 6’’ diameter and a redundant safety brake. All the automation and coding were done by SCI to respect the amazing vision of M. Robinson.
