The mold for sheave pulleys is designed to create the desired shape and features of the pulley.


The raw materials are melted and poured into the mold to form the sheave pulley.

Raw Materials

High-quality materials such as bronze or steel are used to ensure the durability and performance of the sheave pulley.


The production process involves machining and finishing the sheave pulley to meet specific requirements.


Each sheave pulley undergoes rigorous testing to ensure quality, performance, and safety standards are met.

Antirust Treatment

Special coatings or treatments are applied to the sheave pulley to prevent rust and corrosion.

Separate Inspection

Each sheave pulley is individually inspected for any defects or imperfections before packaging and shipping.


Sheave pulleys are marked with relevant information such as size, load capacity, and production details for identification.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Tension Adjustment

Adjust the tension of the belt or rope on the sheave pulley to ensure proper alignment and operation.

2. Position Adjustment

Move the sheave pulley to the correct position to align with other components in the system.

3. Belt Alignment

Ensure the belt or rope is properly aligned on the sheave pulley to prevent slipping or wear.

4. Lubrication

Apply lubricant to the bearings and shaft of the sheave pulley for smooth operation and reduced friction.

5. Inspection

Regularly inspect the sheave pulley for any signs of wear, damage, or misalignment that may require adjustment.

6. Professional Assistance

If unsure or unable to adjust the sheave pulley properly, seek assistance from a qualified technician or engineer.
