Why Sheave Maintenance is Essential

Pulleys and sheaves are the mechanisms that allow wire rope to turn corners and hoist heavy loads. Throughout the course of their working life, these simple machines rotate thousands, and even millions of times, bending wire rope along with each turn. Though sheaves and wire rope work together seamlessly when properly maintained, issues such as kinking and abrasion are more likely to occur if a system is neglected or damaged in any way. Ignoring these hazards not only increases damage to other equipment in the system, but it also places personnel in imminent danger if small issues escalate to total failure. That is why sheave maintenance is not only important; it is essential.
