What is a sheave on a pulley?

  • Sheave on a pulley is a wheel with a groove used to hold a belt, rope, or cable, allowing for the transmission of power or motion.
  • It helps change the direction of the force applied and provides mechanical advantage.
  • The sheave rotates on an axle and can be fixed or adjustable depending on the application.
  • Sheaves come in various sizes and materials to suit different requirements.
  • They are commonly used in lifting and pulling applications to reduce friction and increase efficiency.
