Fixed sheave pulleys have a stationary groove that does not move, suitable for applications where the speed ratio does not change.

2. Adjustable Sheave Pulleys:

Adjustable sheave pulleys allow for the adjustment of the distance between the grooves, providing flexibility in power transmission.

3. Split Sheave Pulleys:

Split sheave pulleys have two separate halves that can be easily installed or removed without disassembling the entire system.

4. Variable Pitch Sheave Pulleys:

Variable pitch sheave pulleys allow for the adjustment of the groove width, enabling variable speed ratios.

5. Multi-Groove Sheave Pulleys:

Multi-groove sheave pulleys have multiple grooves to accommodate several belts, increasing the power transmission capacity.

6. Wire Rope Sheave Pulleys:

Wire rope sheave pulleys are designed to guide and support wire ropes in lifting and rigging applications.

What is a sheave on a pulley

1. A sheave on a pulley is a wheel or roller with a groove used to guide and support a belt, rope, or cable.

2. It helps to transmit power between the driver and driven machinery by maintaining tension on the belt or rope.

3. Sheaves on pulleys are crucial components in power transmission systems, ensuring smooth and efficient operation.

4. They come in various sizes and materials to suit different applications and load requirements.

5. Sheaves on pulleys play a vital role in reducing friction and wear on belts, ropes, and cables.

What are sheaves used for?

1. Power Transmission:

The mold for sheave pulleys is created to shape the final product accurately.


Once the mold is ready, the molten metal is poured into it to form the sheave pulley.

Raw Materials:

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


The sheave pulleys are manufactured with precision engineering to meet specific requirements.


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

Antirust Treatment:

Sheave pulleys are treated with anti-rust coatings to prolong their lifespan and maintain functionality.

Separate Inspection:

After production, each sheave pulley is inspected individually to guarantee quality control.


Finally, the sheave pulleys are marked with necessary information for identification and traceability.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Loosen the Set Screw:

Start by loosening the set screw on the adjustable sheave pulley to allow for adjustments.

2. Adjust the Sheave Position:

Move the sheave pulley along the shaft to the desired position for the required belt tension.

3. Retighten the Set Screw:

Once the adjustment is made, retighten the set screw to secure the sheave pulley in place.

4. Check Belt Alignment:

Ensure that the belt is properly aligned on the sheave pulley for smooth operation.

5. Verify Tension:

Check the tension of the belt on the sheave pulley to prevent slippage or wear.

6. Test Operation:

Run the system to test the sheave pulley adjustments and make any necessary fine-tuning.

7. Regular Maintenance:

Periodically check and adjust the sheave pulleys to maintain optimal performance and efficiency.
