Sheaves & blocks
When steel wire ropes are used in an installation, in many cases sheaves are used as well. When it comes to sheaves, the hardness of the groove is a very important parameter. If it's insufficiently high, the sheave will wear down quickly. Considering this, it's very important to use high-quality sheaves and blocks.
Sheaves are also mounted in steel cable blocks. Here, the same requirements as for sheaves apply in installations. The cable sheave be matched to the cable. The diameter of the cable sheave (D/d ratio), for example, plays an important role here.
You have bearing-mounted cable sheaves or cable sheaves fitted with a bronze bushing. Steel cable sheaves come in handy in any situation or installation where steel cables have to be guided. At Mennens, you are guaranteed to find steel cable sheaves and blocks that meet your requirements. Want to know more? Feel free to contact us.
