Types of Sheave Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys have a stationary axle and are used to change the direction of a force.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys are attached to the load being moved and provide mechanical advantage.

3. Compound Pulleys

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

4. Block and Tackle Pulleys

Block and tackle pulleys are a system of pulleys that work together to lift heavy loads with less effort.

5. Snatch Block Pulleys

Snatch block pulleys are used for redirecting loads or changing the direction of a line.

6. Wire Rope Pulleys

Wire rope pulleys are specifically designed for use with wire ropes to provide smooth movement.

What is a Sheave on a Pulley?

  • A sheave is a wheel or roller with a groove used with a belt or rope to change the direction or point of application of a pulling force.
  • Sheaves are commonly used in pulley systems to increase mechanical advantage and reduce the effort required to lift loads.
  • They come in various sizes and materials to suit different applications and load capacities.
  • Sheaves can be made of metal, plastic, or other materials depending on the specific requirements of the pulley system.
  • They are essential components in lifting and rigging systems, as well as in industrial machinery and equipment.

What are Sheaves Used For?

  • Sheaves are used to change the direction of a force in lifting and rigging applications.
  • They provide mechanical advantage to reduce the amount of effort needed to lift heavy loads.
  • Sheaves are essential components in pulley systems for various industries, including construction, marine, and manufacturing.
  • They help to distribute the load evenly across multiple ropes or cables for efficient lifting operations.
  • Sheaves are used in conjunction with wire ropes, chains, or belts to facilitate movement and control of loads.

Process of Sheave Pulley

The design of the sheave pulley is created in a mold to form the desired shape and structure.


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

Raw Materials:

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


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


Each sheave pulley undergoes rigorous testing to ensure functionality and reliability.

Antirust Treatment:

A special treatment is applied to prevent rust and corrosion for long-lasting use.

Separate Inspection:

Every sheave pulley is individually inspected to guarantee quality and performance.


Each sheave pulley is marked with relevant information for identification and tracking.

How do you Adjust Sheave Pulleys?

  • Ensure the pulley is disconnected from any power source before making adjustments.
  • Use appropriate tools to loosen the set screws or bolts holding the sheave in place.
  • Adjust the position of the sheave to the desired location for proper alignment.
  • Secure the sheave in place by tightening the set screws or bolts to the recommended torque.
  • Check the alignment and tension of the pulley system to ensure smooth operation.
  • Regularly inspect and maintain the sheave pulleys to prevent wear and ensure optimal performance.
