Winch 1 is the fastest of the DMX winches in the Wahlberg range – light and easy.

The Winch 1 is perfect for small, fast pick-ups of fabrics or other special effects.

The large drum of the winch makes this compact wire winch the fastest in our range, running up to 150 cm/s.
Suitable for lightweight loads up to a 1 Kg (2.2 lb)
The winch can be easily controlled via DMX from a lighting desk or stand-alone controller.

With 16-bit precision, you can control the position and the speed of the Winch 1 down to the millimeter.

Furthermore, the winch is great for controlling multiple elements, all synchronized and easily programmed via DMX. 

When combined with wireless LED balls, the DMX winches can create visually stunning kinetic installations, that changes form and colors in seconds.

The winch 1 can be custom made with up to 17 meters of wires, making it great for big venues, where the winches are mounted just below the ceiling.

Drake – Video below

Check out 788 of the Wahlberg Winch 1, DMX Winches playing a central part of the rap-artist Drake’s show.

The show was made by Stage Kinetik using Glow Motion Technologies’ wirelessly controlled battery driven LED balls. All winches were controlled via DMX and programmed in 3-D space, creating the stunning effect in the video below.

With a wire thickness of only 1 millimeter, it is almost impossible to see the wires from a distance and the balls look like they are flying with no strings attached.


Do you need to lift a heavier load than 1 kg, make sure to check out our winch 5 and winch 10.
