  5. Swivel Sheave Pulleys: Allow for cable movement in various directions.
  6. Heavy-duty Sheave Pulleys: Built to withstand high loads and tough conditions.

What is a Sheave on a Pulley:

  1. A sheave is a wheel with a groove used to support and guide cables or ropes.
  2. It helps in changing the direction of force for efficient operation.
  3. Sheaves are commonly found in pulley systems for mechanical advantage.
  4. They can be made from metal, plastic, or other materials depending on the application.
  5. Sheaves come in various sizes and designs to accommodate different cable types.

What are Sheaves used for?

  1. Transferring power and motion in machinery.
  2. Supporting and guiding cables in rigging and lifting systems.
  3. Changing the direction of force in pulley systems.
  4. Increasing mechanical advantage for heavy loads.
  5. Ensuring smooth and efficient operation of cables or ropes.
  6. Used in various industries such as construction, marine, and manufacturing.

Process of Sheave Pulley:


The mold is created to form the shape of the sheave pulley.

The molten raw materials are poured into the mold to create the sheave pulley.

Raw Materials:

Durable materials such as steel or aluminum are used to ensure strength and longevity.


The sheave pulley is manufactured using precision machining techniques.


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

Antirust Treatment:

The sheave pulley is treated to prevent corrosion and rust in outdoor environments.

Seperate Inspection:

Each sheave pulley is individually inspected for defects or imperfections.


Final markings are added for identification and traceability.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

  1. Loosen the fasteners holding the sheave pulley in place.
  2. Adjust the position of the sheave pulley to the desired location.
  3. Ensure the cables are properly aligned and tensioned.
  4. Tighten the fasteners securely to hold the sheave pulley in place.
  5. Check for smooth movement of cables after adjustment.
  6. Regularly inspect and maintain the sheave pulleys for optimal performance.
  7. Consult manufacturer guidelines for specific adjustment instructions.
