Types of Sheave Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys have a stationary axle and are used to change the direction of a force.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys have a moving axle and are used to increase mechanical advantage.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine both fixed and movable pulleys to provide a greater mechanical advantage.

4. Block and Tackle Pulleys

Block and tackle pulleys use multiple pulleys in a system to lift heavy loads with less force.

5. Snatch Blocks

Snatch blocks are used to change the direction of a line without having to re-reeve the line.

6. Wire Rope Sheaves

Wire rope sheaves are designed specifically for use with wire ropes to guide and control their movement.

What is a sheave on a pulley?

A sheave on a pulley is a wheel with a groove used to guide a belt, rope, or cable along its circumference. It helps to change the direction of the force applied and provide mechanical advantage.

What are sheaves used for?

1. Transmitting Power

Sheaves are used to transmit power from one source to another, such as in conveyor systems.

2. Lifting Heavy Loads

Sheaves are utilized in lifting systems to increase mechanical advantage and lift heavy loads with less effort.

3. Changing Direction

Sheaves are used to change the direction of a force or motion, making them essential in various mechanical systems.

4. Guiding Cables or Ropes

Sheaves guide cables or ropes along their path, ensuring smooth and controlled movement.

5. Tensioning Systems

Sheaves are used in tensioning systems to maintain the proper tension in belts, ropes, or cables.

6. Speed Control

Sheaves can be used in speed control systems to regulate the speed of rotating equipment.

Process of Sheave Pulley

The mold for sheave pulleys is carefully designed to ensure accurate and consistent production.


The molten metal is poured into the mold to create the shape of the sheave pulley.

Raw Materials

High-quality raw materials are used to ensure the durability and strength of the sheave pulley.


The production process involves precision machining and assembly to create a functional sheave pulley.


Each sheave pulley undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it meets quality and performance standards.

Antirust Treatment

Sheave pulleys are treated with anti-rust coatings to protect them from corrosion and extend their lifespan.

Separate Inspection

Each sheave pulley is inspected individually to check for any defects or issues before packaging.


Sheave pulleys are marked with relevant information such as size, load capacity, and production date for easy identification.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Loosen Set Screws

To adjust the sheave pulley, start by loosening the set screws that hold it in place.

2. Adjust Belt Tension

Adjust the belt tension by moving the sheave pulley closer or further away from the motor or driven unit.

3. Align Sheave Pulleys

Make sure the sheave pulleys are properly aligned to ensure smooth operation and reduce wear on the belts.

4. Check for Wear

Inspect the sheave pulleys for any signs of wear or damage, and replace them if necessary.

5. Secure Set Screws

Once the adjustment is complete, secure the set screws back in place to prevent the sheave pulley from shifting.

6. Test Operation

After adjusting the sheave pulleys, test the operation of the system to ensure proper functionality.
