What is a sheave on a pulley

1. Definition

A sheave on a pulley is a grooved wheel that holds a belt, rope, or cable, allowing for smooth and efficient movement.

2. Function

The sheave helps to guide and support the belt or cable, ensuring proper alignment and reducing wear and tear on the system.

3. Material

Sheaves are typically made from materials such as steel, aluminum, or nylon, depending on the application and load requirements.

4. Size

Sheaves come in a variety of sizes to accommodate different belt or cable diameters and load capacities.

5. Design

Sheaves are designed with precision-engineered grooves to prevent slippage and ensure smooth operation of the system.

What are sheaves used for?

The mold is created to produce the desired shape of the sheave pulley.


The raw materials are poured into the mold and allowed to solidify to form the sheave pulley.

Raw Materials

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


The sheave pulley is manufactured with precision engineering and attention to detail.


Each sheave pulley undergoes rigorous testing to ensure quality and reliability.

Antirust Treatment

The sheave pulley is treated with anti-rust coatings to protect against corrosion and prolong its lifespan.

Separate Inspection

Each sheave pulley is individually inspected to maintain high standards of quality control.


Finally, the sheave pulley is marked with relevant information for identification and tracking purposes.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Tension Adjustment

Loosen the mounting bolts, adjust the position of the sheave, and tighten the bolts to achieve the desired tension.

2. Belt Alignment

Ensure the belt is properly aligned on the sheave pulley to prevent slipping or uneven wear.

3. Diameter Adjustment

Change the position of the belt on the sheave pulley to adjust the effective diameter and control speed.

4. Lubrication

Regularly lubricate the sheave pulley to reduce friction and ensure smooth operation.

5. Inspection

Periodically inspect the sheave pulley for wear or damage, and replace if necessary to maintain optimal performance.

6. Professional Assistance

If unsure about adjusting sheave pulleys, seek assistance from a professional to avoid causing damage to the system.
