Types of Sheave Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

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

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys have a freely moving axle and are used to amplify the applied force.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to provide mechanical advantage.

4. Snatch Blocks

Snatch blocks have an opening that allows the wire rope to be easily inserted, making them ideal for lifting applications.

5. Wire Rope Pulleys

Wire rope pulleys are specifically designed to work with wire ropes and provide smooth operation.

6. Nylon Sheave Pulleys

Nylon sheave pulleys are lightweight and durable, making them suitable for various industries.

What is a sheave on a pulley?

A sheave on a pulley is a grooved wheel designed to hold a wire rope or cable securely in place while allowing it to move freely.

What are sheaves used for?

1. Change Direction

Sheaves are used to change the direction of a wire rope or cable in various applications.

2. Increase Mechanical Advantage

By using multiple sheaves, mechanical advantage can be increased to lift heavier loads with less effort.

3. Reduce Friction

Sheaves help reduce friction between the wire rope and the pulley, allowing for smoother operation.

4. Support Heavy Loads

Sheaves are capable of supporting heavy loads in lifting and rigging applications.

5. Maintain Tension

Sheaves help maintain tension in the wire rope or cable, preventing slippage or sagging.

6. Facilitate Movement

Sheaves facilitate the movement of wire ropes or cables in various directions, making them essential in many industries.
