Movable pulleys can move along the axle, providing mechanical advantage when lifting heavy loads.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine both fixed and movable pulleys to increase the mechanical advantage even further.

4. Block and Tackle Pulleys

Block and tackle pulleys consist of multiple pulleys working together to provide a higher mechanical advantage for lifting heavy objects.

5. Snatch Blocks

Snatch blocks are designed for use with ropes or cables and can rotate around the axle to redirect the force.

6. Timing Belt Pulleys

Timing belt pulleys have specially designed teeth to ensure precise timing and synchronization in machinery.

What is a sheave on a pulley?

1. Definition

A sheave is a wheel or pulley with a grooved rim designed to hold a belt, rope, or cable to transmit power or change the direction of a force applied.

2. Function

The sheave on a pulley helps guide and support the belt, rope, or cable, ensuring smooth and efficient movement within the system.

3. Design

Sheaves are typically made from durable materials such as steel, aluminum, or plastic, depending on the application requirements.

4. Size

Sheaves come in various sizes to accommodate different belt or rope diameters and can be customized to fit specific needs.

5. Maintenance

Regular inspection and lubrication of sheaves are essential to ensure optimal performance and prolong the lifespan of the pulley system.

What are sheaves used for?

1. Power Transmission

Sheaves are used to transmit power between shafts by connecting them with belts or ropes.

2. Directional Change

Sheaves help redirect the force or motion in a different direction within a mechanical system.

3. Speed Adjustment

By changing the diameter of the sheave or using different-sized sheaves, the speed of a system can be adjusted accordingly.

4. Load Support

Sheaves provide support for loads by guiding and controlling the movement of belts, ropes, or cables in lifting or pulling applications.

5. Tension Control

Sheaves help maintain proper tension in belts or ropes to prevent slipping and ensure efficient power transmission.

The raw materials are melted and poured into the mold to create the desired shape of the sheave pulley.

Raw Materials

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


The sheave pulley is manufactured using precision machinery and techniques to meet strict quality standards.


Each sheave pulley undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it meets performance and durability requirements before being released for use.

Antirust Treatment

The sheave pulley is treated with a special coating to prevent rust and corrosion, prolonging its lifespan.

Separate Inspection

After production, each sheave pulley is individually inspected for quality control purposes to guarantee optimal performance.


Each sheave pulley is marked with relevant information such as size, load capacity, and manufacturing date for easy identification and traceability.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Tension Adjustment

By adjusting the position of the sheave pulley or changing the belt tension, you can modify the system’s tension for optimal performance.

2. Alignment Correction

Ensure the sheave pulleys are properly aligned to prevent belt slippage and maintain smooth operation.

3. Lubrication

Regularly lubricate the sheave pulleys to reduce friction and wear, extending the lifespan of the system.

4. Belt Replacement

If the belt shows signs of wear or damage, replace it promptly to prevent further issues with the sheave pulleys.

5. Size Adjustment

Consider changing the size of the sheave pulleys to adjust the speed or power transmission of the system as needed.

6. Professional Inspection

If unsure about adjustments, seek professional help to ensure the sheave pulleys are correctly adjusted for optimal performance.

7. Regular Maintenance

Perform routine maintenance checks on the sheave pulleys to identify any issues early and prevent costly repairs in the future.
