The sheave pulleys have a high load capacity to support heavy weights and equipment commonly used in sports stadium setups.

5. Easy Installation

They are designed for easy installation and maintenance, ensuring convenience for stadium operators.

Types of Sheave Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys are stationary and change the direction of the force applied to the rope or cable.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys move with the load and provide a mechanical advantage to lift heavy objects.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to increase the mechanical advantage even further.

4. Block and Tackle Pulleys

Block and tackle pulleys use multiple pulleys in a system to distribute weight and make lifting easier.

5. Snatch Blocks

Snatch blocks are used to change the direction of a line or provide a temporary anchor point.

6. Wire Rope Pulleys

Wire rope pulleys are specially designed for wire ropes to ensure smooth operation and minimal wear.

What is a Sheave on a Pulley?

1. Definition

A sheave is a wheel with a groove used to guide a belt, rope, or cable around it to change the direction or point of application of a force.

2. Function

The sheave helps in reducing friction and increasing the efficiency of the pulley system by providing a smooth surface for the rope or cable to move along.

3. Types

There are different types of sheaves, including flat-top, V-grooved, and flanged sheaves, each designed for specific applications.

4. Material

Sheaves can be made from various materials like steel, aluminum, or plastic, depending on the load capacity and environmental conditions.

5. Maintenance

Regular maintenance of sheaves is essential to ensure smooth operation and prolong the lifespan of the pulley system.

What are Sheaves Used For?

1. Load Distribution

Sheaves are used to distribute the load evenly across multiple ropes or cables in a pulley system.

2. Direction Change

They help change the direction of the force applied, making it easier to lift or move heavy objects.

3. Mechanical Advantage

Sheaves provide a mechanical advantage by reducing the amount of force needed to lift a load.

4. Tension Adjustment

They can be used to adjust the tension in a rope or cable to ensure smooth operation of the pulley system.

5. Speed Control

Sheaves can be used to control the speed of the moving parts in a machine or equipment.

6. Power Transmission

They are also used in power transmission systems to transfer energy from one component to another.

Process of Sheave Pulley

The mold for the sheave pulley is created to form the desired shape and design of the product.


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

Raw Materials

High-quality materials like steel or aluminum are used to ensure the durability and performance of the sheave pulley.


The casting is completed, and the sheave pulley is processed to achieve the final product specifications.


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

Antirust Treatment

Special treatments are applied to prevent corrosion and enhance the longevity of the sheave pulley.

Separate Inspection

Each sheave pulley is individually inspected to guarantee it meets the required standards before packaging.


The sheave pulleys are marked with necessary information such as load capacity, size, and specifications for identification.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Tension Adjustment

Use the tensioning mechanism to adjust the tension in the rope or cable connected to the sheave pulley.

2. Positioning

Change the position of the sheave pulley to alter the direction of the force or movement of the load.

3. Lubrication

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

4. Inspection

Inspect the sheave pulley regularly for any signs of wear or damage, and make adjustments accordingly.

5. Load Distribution

Adjust the number of sheaves or pulleys in the system to distribute the load evenly and prevent overloading.

6. Consultation

If unsure about how to adjust the sheave pulleys, consult the manufacturer or a professional for guidance.
