Process of Sheave Pulley


The mold is prepared based on the design requirements for the sheave pulley.

spa pulley


The molten raw material is poured into the mold to form the sheave pulley shape.

Raw Materials

High-quality materials such as steel or aluminum are used for durability and strength.


The sheave pulley is manufactured according to precise specifications and standards.


Each sheave pulley undergoes rigorous testing to ensure quality and performance.

Antirust Treatment

A protective coating is applied to prevent corrosion and increase longevity.

Separate Inspection

Individual inspection is done to check for any defects or imperfections.


Sheave pulleys are marked with specifications for easy identification and tracking.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

  • Loosen the set screw on the sheave pulley
  • Slide the sheave along the shaft to the desired position
  • Tighten the set screw to secure the sheave in place
  • Check alignment and tension of the ropes or cables
  • Test the operation of the system for smooth functionality
  • Make any necessary adjustments for optimal performance
  • Regularly inspect and maintain the sheave pulleys for continued efficiency
