Wire rope sheave pulleys are specifically designed to work with wire ropes, providing a secure grip and smooth operation.

What is a sheave on a pulley?

1. Definition

A sheave on a pulley is a wheel with a groove used to guide a rope or cable, providing mechanical advantage in lifting or pulling operations.

2. Function

The sheave changes the direction of the force applied to the rope or cable, allowing for easier movement of heavy loads.

3. Components

The sheave pulley consists of a wheel, axle, and bearings, all working together to facilitate smooth movement of the rope or cable.

4. Types

Sheaves can come in various designs and materials, depending on the specific application and load requirements.

5. Maintenance

Regular inspection and lubrication of the sheave pulley are essential to ensure proper functioning and longevity of the system.

What are sheaves used for?

1. Load Distribution

Sheaves are used to distribute the load evenly across multiple ropes or cables, preventing strain on individual components.

2. Mechanical Advantage

Sheaves provide a mechanical advantage by changing the direction of the force applied, making it easier to lift or move heavy objects.

3. Speed Control

Sheaves can be used to control the speed of the system by adjusting the diameter of the sheave or the number of sheaves in use.

4. Directional Changes

Sheaves allow for changes in the direction of the rope or cable, enabling versatile movement in various applications.

5. Tension Adjustment

Sheaves help in adjusting and maintaining the tension in the system, ensuring smooth and efficient operation.

6. Emergency Rescue

Sheaves are crucial components in high-rise emergency systems, facilitating safe and swift evacuation procedures.

Process of Sheave Pulley


The mold is created based on the design specifications, ensuring the accurate shape and size of the sheave pulley.


The raw materials are melted and poured into the mold to form the sheave pulley, allowing for precise casting of the component.

Raw Materials

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


The production process involves machining and finishing the sheave pulley to meet the required standards and specifications.


Rigorous testing is conducted to ensure the sheave pulley meets quality and safety standards before being used in high-rise emergency systems.

Antirust Treatment

A special antirust treatment is applied to the sheave pulley to protect it from corrosion and extend its lifespan.

Separate Inspection

Each sheave pulley undergoes individual inspection to check for any defects or irregularities, ensuring optimal performance.


Identification marks or labels are added to the sheave pulley for easy tracking and maintenance purposes.
