What is a sheave on a pulley?

  1. A sheave on a pulley is a grooved wheel that holds a belt, rope, or cable to provide mechanical advantage in motion transmission.
  2. It helps to change the direction of the force applied and increase the tension in the system.
  3. The sheave acts as a pulley by redirecting the force to achieve a desired output.
  4. Sheaves are commonly used in lifting equipment, cranes, elevators, and other machinery that requires the transmission of power.
  5. They come in various sizes and materials to suit different applications.

What are sheaves used for?

  1. Adjusting speed and torque in machinery
  2. Transmitting power efficiently
  3. Supporting and guiding belts, ropes, or cables
  4. Changing the direction of force
  5. Increasing tension in the system
  6. Enabling smooth and reliable operation of equipment

Process of Sheave Pulley


The mold is created to form the shape of the sheave pulley.

spa pulley


The raw materials are melted and poured into the mold to form the sheave pulley.

Raw Materials

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


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


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

Antirust Treatment

A protective coating is applied to prevent corrosion and rust.

Separate Inspection

Individual inspection is carried out to guarantee the sheave pulley meets specifications.


Each sheave pulley is marked with relevant information for identification.

How do you adjust sheave pulleys?

  1. Loosen the set screws on the sheave pulley.
  2. Move the belt to the desired groove on the sheave.
  3. Adjust the tension of the belt as needed.
  4. Tighten the set screws to secure the position of the belt.
  5. Test the operation of the machinery to ensure proper adjustment.
  6. Make further adjustments if necessary for optimal performance.
  7. Regularly inspect and maintain the sheave pulleys to avoid issues in the future.
