Types of Sheave Pulleys

1. Fixed Sheave Pulleys

Fixed sheave pulleys are stationary and do not move, providing a stable point for the belt to run on.

2. Movable Sheave Pulleys

Movable sheave pulleys can change position to adjust the tension in the belt, allowing for flexibility in the system.

3. Variable Speed Sheave Pulleys

Variable speed sheave pulleys can change the speed ratio between the input and output shafts, providing adjustable speed control.

4. Timing Sheave Pulleys

Timing sheave pulleys are designed to work with timing belts, ensuring precise and synchronized movement in the system.

5. Idler Sheave Pulleys

Idler sheave pulleys are used to guide and support the belt in the system, maintaining proper alignment and tension.

What is a Sheave on a Pulley?

1. Definition

A sheave on a pulley is a wheel with a groove around its circumference, designed to hold a belt, rope, or cable.

2. Function

The sheave provides a surface for the belt to run on and helps guide the belt in the system, ensuring smooth operation.

3. Material

Sheaves are commonly made of materials like steel, aluminum, or plastic, depending on the application requirements.

4. Size

Sheaves come in various sizes to accommodate different belt widths and systems, ensuring proper fit and function.

5. Maintenance

Regular maintenance of sheaves is important to ensure smooth operation and prevent wear and tear on the system.

The mold for sheave pulleys is created to form the desired shape and design of the pulley.


Raw materials are melted and poured into the mold to create the sheave pulley’s initial form.

Raw Materials

Sheave pulleys can be made from various materials such as steel, aluminum, or plastic, depending on the application.


The sheave pulleys are manufactured using precision engineering and quality control processes to ensure durability.


Each sheave pulley undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it meets quality and performance standards before being used.

Antirust Treatment

Sheave pulleys are treated with anti-rust coatings to protect them from corrosion and extend their lifespan.

Seperate Inspection

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


Sheave pulleys are marked with identifying information for traceability and quality assurance purposes.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Tension Adjustment

Adjust the tension in the belt by moving the movable sheave pulley to achieve the desired tightness.

2. Speed Control

For variable speed sheave pulleys, adjust the position of the sheaves to change the speed ratio as needed.

3. Alignment

Ensure proper alignment of the sheave pulleys to prevent belt slippage and maintain smooth operation.

4. Lubrication

Regularly lubricate the sheave pulleys to reduce friction and wear on the system.

5. Inspection

Regularly inspect the sheave pulleys for wear, damage, or misalignment, and make adjustments as needed.

6. Consultation

If unsure how to adjust sheave pulleys, consult the manufacturer’s guidelines or seek professional assistance.
