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

Antirust Treatment:

Anti-rust coatings are applied to protect the sheave pulleys from corrosion and extend their lifespan.

Separate Inspection:

Each sheave pulley is individually inspected to guarantee it meets the required specifications.


Proper marking is done on the sheave pulleys for easy identification and tracking.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

  1. Check the alignment of the sheave pulleys to ensure they are properly positioned.
  2. Inspect the tension of the belts or cables connected to the sheaves for optimal performance.
  3. Use a sheave alignment tool to adjust the position of the sheaves accurately.
  4. Make sure the sheave pulleys are clean and free from debris for smooth operation.
  5. Regularly lubricate the sheave pulleys to reduce friction and extend their lifespan.
  6. If necessary, consult the manufacturer’s guidelines for specific instructions on adjusting sheave pulleys.
  7. Periodically monitor the performance of the sheave pulleys and make adjustments as needed for efficient operation.
