Types of Sheave Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys have a stationary axle and are used to redirect the force in a single direction.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys have a pulley that moves with the load, providing mechanical advantage when lifting heavy objects.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to increase the lifting force with less effort.

4. Block and Tackle Pulleys

Block and tackle pulleys use multiple pulleys to distribute weight evenly and provide a mechanical advantage.

5. Snatch Blocks

Snatch blocks are designed for use with ropes to change the direction of a line or increase the mechanical advantage.

6. Idler Pulleys

Idler pulleys are used to route a belt around a system and do not transmit power.

What is a sheave on a pulley

  • A sheave is a wheel or pulley with a grooved rim designed to hold a belt, rope, or cable.
  • It is used to change the direction of a force or transmit rotational motion.
  • Sheaves are commonly found in pulley systems to lift or move heavy objects.
  • They come in various sizes and materials to suit different applications.
  • Sheaves can be used in industrial, automotive, and recreational settings.

What are sheaves used for?

1. Lifting Heavy Loads

Sheaves are used to lift heavy loads by providing mechanical advantage through pulley systems.

2. Transmitting Power

Sheaves transmit power by connecting rotating shafts with belts or ropes.

3. Changing Direction of Force

Sheaves change the direction of a force, allowing for movement in different directions.

4. Tensioning Systems

Sheaves are used in tensioning systems to maintain proper belt tension for efficient operation.

5. Guiding Belts or Ropes

Sheaves guide belts or ropes along a specific path to ensure smooth movement.

6. Speed Adjustment

Sheaves are used to adjust the speed of rotating equipment by changing the diameter of the sheave.

Process of Sheave Pulley


The mold is designed to create the specific shape of the sheave pulley.

The raw materials are melted and poured into the mold 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 using precision techniques to meet industry standards.


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

Antirust Treatment

Special treatments are applied to prevent corrosion and increase longevity.

Separate Inspection

Individual inspection is conducted to guarantee the sheave pulley meets specifications.


Each sheave pulley is marked with identification for traceability and quality control purposes.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Adjusting Belt Tension

Loosen the set screws on the sheave and adjust the position to tighten or loosen the belt.

2. Changing Sheave Position

Shift the sheave along the shaft to change the speed ratio and adjust the equipment’s performance.

3. Replacing Sheave Size

Choose a sheave with a different diameter to alter the speed of the equipment.

4. Lubricating Moving Parts

Ensure the sheave pulleys move smoothly by lubricating bearings and axles.

5. Inspecting for Wear

Regularly check the sheave pulleys for signs of wear and replace them if necessary.

6. Consulting Manufacturer Guidelines

Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for specific details on adjusting sheave pulleys.
