Anchor windlass gypsy wheel

An anchor windlass gypsy wheel is a drum with deep grooves that engage the chain links. It is divided into type A and type B according to the number of teeth: type A is a five-tooth chain wheel, and type B is a six-tooth chain wheel. The anchor windlass gypsy wheel is the main part of the anchor-handling machinery, and its manufacturing quality directly affects the efficiency of anchor-handling and anchor-dropping and is crucial to ensuring the safe navigation of the ship. At the same time, the anchor chain wheel also has to bear the torque, traction, and impact from all directions, so the internal quality requirements are very strict.
