polyamide sheave

Polyamide Sheave Introduction

  • High-quality polyamide material
  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Smooth operation
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Wide range of sizes available

Types of Sheave Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys are attached to a solid structure and do not move.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys can move freely and are often used in combination with fixed pulleys for mechanical advantage.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys consist of multiple wheels and can provide a greater mechanical advantage.

4. Block and Tackle Pulleys

Block and tackle pulleys use multiple pulleys to lift heavy loads with less effort.

5. Snatch Blocks

Snatch blocks are used to change the direction of a line without damaging it.

What is a sheave on a pulley

Process of Sheave Pulley

spa pulley


The sheave pulley design is created in a mold for production.


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

Raw Materials

High-quality polyamide materials are used for durability and performance.


The sheave pulleys are manufactured using precision machinery and processes.


Each sheave pulley undergoes rigorous testing for quality assurance.

Antirust Treatment

Special treatment is applied to prevent corrosion and ensure longevity.

Separate Inspection

Every sheave pulley is individually inspected to meet quality standards.


Sheave pulleys are marked with specifications and branding for identification.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

  • Use a wrench to loosen the sheave pulley mounting bolts.
  • Adjust the position of the sheave pulley along the shaft as needed.
  • Ensure proper alignment with other pulleys in the system.
  • Tighten the mounting bolts securely to hold the sheave pulley in place.
  • Check for smooth operation and proper tension on the belt or rope.
  • Make any necessary adjustments to optimize performance.
  • Regularly inspect and maintain sheave pulleys to ensure efficient operation.
