Types of Sheave Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys have a stationary axle and are ideal for changing the direction of force applied to the rope or cable.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys have a pulley mounted on a movable axle, allowing for mechanical advantage in lifting heavy loads.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine both fixed and movable pulleys to provide increased lifting force with less effort.

4. Block and Tackle Pulleys

Block and tackle pulleys consist of multiple pulleys in a system to provide a mechanical advantage for lifting heavy objects.

5. Snatch Blocks

Snatch blocks are pulleys that can be opened to insert a rope without threading the rope through the block, making them versatile for various rigging situations.

What is a sheave on a pulley

  • A sheave is a wheel with a groove used for holding a rope or cable
  • It helps change the direction of force applied to the rope
  • The groove prevents the rope from slipping off the wheel
  • Sheaves are commonly used in pulley systems for lifting and lowering loads
  • They are available in various sizes and materials to suit different applications
