Types of Sheave Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys have a stationary axle and are used to redirect the force in a lifting mechanism.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys have a pulley that moves with the load, reducing the amount of force needed for lifting.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to provide mechanical advantage for lifting heavy loads.

4. Block and Tackle Pulleys

Block and tackle pulleys consist of multiple pulleys working together to increase the lifting force.

5. Snatch Blocks

Snatch blocks are pulleys that can open to receive a rope without threading the rope through.

6. Wire Rope Sheaves

Wire rope sheaves are designed specifically for wire ropes to guide and support the rope during operation.

What is a Sheave on a Pulley

  • A sheave is a wheel or pulley with a grooved rim designed to hold a belt, rope, or cable.
  • It is used to change the direction of a force or transmit rotational motion.
  • Sheaves can be made of various materials such as steel, aluminum, or plastic.
  • They come in different sizes and configurations depending on the application.
  • Sheaves play a crucial role in lifting and pulling systems.

What are Sheaves used for?

  • Sheaves are used in pulley systems to provide mechanical advantage for lifting heavy loads.
  • They are essential in industries such as construction, mining, and transportation.
  • Sheaves help to reduce the amount of force required to move objects.
  • They are also used in conveyor systems to move materials from one place to another.
  • Sheaves play a key role in the smooth operation of machinery and equipment.
  • They are crucial components in rigging and hoisting operations.

Process of Sheave Pulley

The mold is prepared based on the design requirements for the sheave pulley.


The molten metal is poured into the mold to create the shape of the sheave pulley.

Raw Materials

High-quality materials such as steel or aluminum are used to ensure durability and strength.


The sheave pulleys are manufactured using precision engineering techniques for optimal performance.


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

Antirust Treatment

A special coating is applied to the sheave pulleys to protect them from corrosion.

Separate Inspection

Each sheave pulley is individually inspected to maintain high standards of quality control.


Each sheave pulley is marked with essential information for identification and traceability.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

  • Loosen the set screws on the sheave hub.
  • Adjust the position of the sheave on the shaft.
  • Tighten the set screws to secure the sheave in place.
  • Check the alignment of the sheave with other pulleys.
  • Ensure proper tension on the belt or rope connected to the sheave.
  • Regularly inspect and maintain the sheave pulleys for optimal performance.
  • Consult the manufacturer’s guidelines for specific adjustment procedures.
