Timing belt pulleys have teeth that mesh with the teeth of a timing belt for precise power transmission.

What is a Sheave on a Pulley?

1. Definition

A sheave on a pulley is a grooved wheel that holds a belt, rope, or cable to facilitate power transmission and lifting operations.

2. Function

The sheave provides a surface for the belt or rope to ride on, allowing for smooth and efficient transfer of power.

3. Components

A sheave consists of a wheel with a groove, typically made of metal or plastic, to guide the belt or rope.

4. Types

There are different types of sheaves, including flat belt, V-belt, and timing belt sheaves, each designed for specific applications.

5. Importance

Sheaves play a crucial role in various industries such as manufacturing, construction, and transportation for power transmission and lifting purposes.

What are Sheaves Used For?

1. Power Transmission

Sheaves are used to transmit power from one shaft to another efficiently and effectively.

2. Lifting Operations

Sheaves are essential components in lifting systems like cranes and elevators for smooth and controlled movement.

3. Conveyor Systems

Sheaves are used in conveyor systems to guide and support belts for transporting materials in manufacturing facilities.

4. Agricultural Machinery

Sheaves are utilized in agricultural machinery for tasks such as harvesting, irrigation, and crop processing.

5. Automotive Applications

Sheaves are used in vehicles for functions like steering systems, air conditioning compressors, and water pumps.

6. Industrial Equipment

The molten steel is poured into the mold to form the desired shape of the sheave pulley.

Raw Materials

High-quality steel materials are used in the production of sheave pulleys to ensure durability and performance.


The sheave pulleys are manufactured using precision machinery and processes for consistent quality.


Each sheave pulley undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it meets performance and safety standards.

Antirust Treatment

Sheave pulleys are treated with anti-rust coatings to protect them from corrosion and extend their lifespan.

Separate Inspection

After production, each sheave pulley is individually inspected for quality control and compliance with specifications.


Sheave pulleys are marked with necessary information such as size, load capacity, and manufacturer details for identification.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

1. Loosen the Set Screw

Start by loosening the set screw on the sheave pulley to allow for adjustment.

2. Adjust the Position

Move the sheave pulley along the shaft to the desired position for proper alignment.

3. Tighten the Set Screw

Once adjusted, tighten the set screw securely to hold the sheave pulley in place.

4. Check Alignment

Ensure that the sheave pulley is correctly aligned with other components for smooth operation.

5. Test Operation

After adjustment, test the sheave pulley to verify that it functions correctly without any issues.

6. Regular Maintenance

Perform regular inspections and maintenance to keep the sheave pulleys in optimal condition for efficient operation.
