Travelling block pulleys are designed to move along a track or system, providing dynamic support for heavy loads.

What is a sheave on a pulley?

1. The sheave is the wheel or roller in a pulley that the rope or cable wraps around.

2. It helps to change the direction of the force applied to the rope or cable.

3. Sheaves can be made of various materials such as steel, aluminum, or plastic.

4. They are often grooved to prevent the rope or cable from slipping off during operation.

5. Sheaves come in different sizes and configurations to accommodate various loads and applications.

What are sheaves used for?

1. Sheaves are used to reduce the amount of force required to lift or move heavy objects.

2. They help to change the direction of the force applied to a rope or cable.

3. Sheaves are essential components in rigging systems for sailboats and other watercraft.

4. They are used in pulley systems to create mechanical advantage for lifting or lowering loads.

5. Sheaves are also used in industrial applications such as construction, mining, and manufacturing.

6. They play a crucial role in maintaining tension and guiding ropes or cables in various systems.
