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 movable axle and are commonly used in mechanical systems to provide mechanical advantage.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to increase the mechanical advantage in lifting systems.

4. Block and Tackle Pulleys

Block and tackle pulleys consist of multiple pulleys arranged in a block and tackle system to provide a high mechanical advantage.

5. Snatch Blocks

Snatch blocks are designed to be used with ropes or cables to change the direction of a line without twisting it.

6. Wire Rope Sheaves

Wire rope sheaves are specifically designed to work with wire ropes for lifting applications.

What is a sheave on a pulley?

1. A sheave on a pulley is a wheel with a groove used to guide a belt or cable.

2. It helps to change the direction of the force applied.

3. Sheaves provide mechanical advantage by multiplying the force applied.

4. They are commonly used in lifting and rigging applications.

5. Sheaves can be made from various materials such as steel, aluminum, or plastic.

What are sheaves used for?

1. Lifting heavy loads in construction and industrial settings.

2. Reducing the amount of force required to lift objects.

3. Guiding cables and ropes in various machinery.

4. Changing the direction of a force in a mechanical system.

5. Providing mechanical advantage in pulley systems.

6. Ensuring smooth and efficient operation of machinery.

Process of Sheave Pulley

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


The molten material is poured into the mold to create the sheave pulley.

Raw Materials

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


The sheave pulley is manufactured with precision and attention to detail.


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

Antirust Treatment

The sheave pulley is treated to prevent corrosion and ensure longevity.

Separate Inspection

Each sheave pulley is inspected individually to guarantee quality before leaving the factory.


Final marking is done to identify the specifications of the sheave pulley.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Loosen the bolts holding the sheave in place.

2. Adjust the position of the sheave on the shaft to achieve the desired tension.

3. Tighten the bolts securely to hold the sheave in place.

4. Check the alignment of the sheave with other pulleys in the system.

5. Ensure the sheave is properly lubricated for smooth operation.

6. Test the sheave pulley to ensure proper functionality and tension adjustment.
