Process of Sheave Pulley

Below is the detailed process of manufacturing a Sheave Pulley:

  1. Mold: The design is created and a mold is prepared for casting the sheave.
  2. Casting: Molten metal is poured into the mold to create the sheave shape.
  3. Raw Materials: High-quality materials are used to ensure durability and strength.
  4. Production: The sheave is manufactured with precision engineering for optimal performance.
  5. Testing: Each sheave undergoes rigorous testing to ensure quality and reliability.
  6. Antirust Treatment: Sheaves are treated to prevent corrosion and ensure longevity.
  7. Separate Inspection: Each sheave is individually inspected for quality assurance.
  8. Marking: Sheaves are marked with specifications for easy identification and usage.
