Bear Equipment: rope sheave

Did you know there are 9 different dimensions that factor into the specifications for a sheave? The central portion contains 3 important measurements: the shaft, the bore and the hub diameter. Then there's the groove, pitch and outside diameters as well as the groove depth. Measuring along another axis we need to determine the correct rim and hub widths. And finally, the size of the wire rope is important to consider. Once you have all these measurements at hand, we can determine if a standard size will fit your needs. Or you can just give us a call and we'll help you out!
