What is a sheave on a pulley?

  1. A sheave is a wheel or pulley with a grooved rim designed to hold a belt, rope, or cable.
  2. Sheaves are often used in conjunction with ropes or cables to change the direction of force or transmit power.
  3. They can be made from various materials such as steel, aluminum, or plastic, depending on the application.
  4. Sheaves come in different sizes and configurations to accommodate various belt or rope types.
  5. They play a crucial role in maintaining tension and guiding the belt or rope to ensure smooth operation.

What are sheaves used for?

  1. Changing the direction of force.
  2. Transmitting power from one shaft to another.
  3. Maintaining tension in belts or ropes.
  4. Guiding belts or ropes for proper alignment.
  5. Increasing or decreasing the speed of rotation.
  6. Supporting and guiding cables or wires in lifting applications.

Process of Sheave Pulley

The production process of sheave pulleys involves several key steps:


The mold is created based on the specific design requirements of the sheave pulley.


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

Raw Materials

High-quality materials are used to ensure durability and performance.


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


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

Antirust Treatment

Special coatings or treatments are applied to prevent corrosion in marine environments.

Separate Inspection

Each sheave pulley is individually inspected to guarantee quality and reliability.


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

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

  1. Loosen the mounting bolts holding the sheave pulley in place.
  2. Adjust the position of the sheave pulley along the shaft to achieve the desired tension.
  3. Tighten the mounting bolts securely to hold the sheave pulley in the adjusted position.
  4. Check the alignment of the sheave pulley with the belt or rope for proper operation.
  5. Ensure the sheave pulley rotates smoothly without any binding or wobbling.
  6. Regularly inspect and maintain the sheave pulley to prevent premature wear or failure.
  7. Consult the manufacturer’s guidelines for specific instructions on adjusting the sheave pulley.
