Introduction to Double Sheave Block

  • Increased Load Capacity: Double sheave blocks are designed to handle heavier loads compared to single sheave blocks.
  • Improved Efficiency: The use of two sheaves reduces friction, making the lifting process more efficient.
  • Enhanced Stability: The double sheave design provides greater stability and balance during lifting operations.
  • Versatile Applications: Double sheave blocks can be used in a variety of industries and scenarios for lifting and rigging purposes.
  • Durable Construction: These blocks are built to withstand heavy use and harsh environments, ensuring long-lasting performance.

Types of Sheave Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys have a stationary axle and are used to change the direction of a force.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys have a movable axle and can provide a mechanical advantage when lifting loads.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine both fixed and movable pulleys to increase the lifting force.

4. Block and Tackle Pulleys

Block and tackle pulleys utilize multiple pulleys in a system to provide a mechanical advantage.

5. Snatch Blocks

Snatch blocks have an openable side plate that allows the rope to be inserted without threading.

6. Wire Rope Pulleys

Wire rope pulleys are designed specifically for use with wire rope for lifting and rigging applications.

What is a sheave on a pulley

  • Definition: A sheave on a pulley is a wheel with a groove used to guide a rope or cable.
  • Function: The sheave helps to change the direction of the force applied and provide mechanical advantage.
  • Material: Sheaves are commonly made from materials like steel, aluminum, or plastic.
  • Size: Sheaves come in various sizes depending on the application and load requirements.
  • Installation: Sheaves are mounted on a shaft or axle and rotate to guide the rope or cable.

The sheave pulley is first designed and a mold is created to shape the product.


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

Raw Materials:

High-quality materials like steel or aluminum are used to ensure durability and performance.


The sheave pulley is manufactured using advanced production techniques for precision.


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

Antirust Treatment:

An anti-rust treatment is applied to protect the sheave pulley from corrosion.

Separate Inspection:

Each sheave pulley is individually inspected to meet quality standards.


The sheave pulley is marked with important details like load capacity and specifications.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Loosening the Set Screw:

To adjust the sheave pulley, start by loosening the set screw on the hub.

2. Sliding the Sheave:

Once the set screw is loose, slide the sheave along the shaft to the desired position.

3. Aligning the Sheave:

Ensure the sheave is properly aligned with other components for smooth operation.

4. Tightening the Set Screw:

Once adjusted, tighten the set screw securely to hold the sheave in place.

5. Testing the Adjustment:

Test the sheave pulley to ensure it operates correctly after adjustment.

6. Regular Maintenance:

Perform regular checks and maintenance to keep the sheave pulleys in optimal condition.
