Process of Sheave Pulley


The mold is created to form the shape of the sheave pulley.

spa pulley


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

Raw Materials

High-quality materials like steel or aluminum are used for durability.


The sheave pulley is manufactured according to design specifications.


Each sheave pulley undergoes rigorous testing for quality assurance.

Antirust Treatment

A protective coating is applied to prevent rust and corrosion.

Separate Inspection

Individual inspection to ensure each sheave pulley meets standards.


Identification marks are added for traceability and quality control.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

  1. Loosen the set screws on the sheave hub
  2. Adjust the position of the sheave on the shaft
  3. Align the sheave with the belt or rope for proper operation
  4. Tighten the set screws securely
  5. Check the alignment and tension of the belt or rope
  6. Test the operation of the sheave pulley
