Types of Wheel Pulleys

  • Fixed Pulleys

    Fixed pulleys are stationary and change the direction of the force applied to them. They are commonly used in flagpoles or clotheslines.

  • Movable Pulleys

    Movable pulleys are attached to the object being moved, which reduces the amount of force needed. They are often found in construction and lifting equipment.

  • Compound Pulleys

    Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to increase the mechanical advantage. They are ideal for heavy lifting tasks like elevators or cranes.

Advantages of Using Wheel Pulleys

  • Wheel pulleys provide increased mechanical advantage, making it easier to move heavy loads.

  • They offer energy efficiency by reducing the amount of effort required to lift objects.

  • Wheel pulleys are cost-effective and help in saving time and labor.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting

  • Regular maintenance practices such as lubrication are essential for keeping wheel pulleys in good working condition.

  • Common problems with wheel pulleys include wear and tear, which can be troubleshooted by replacing worn-out parts.

Advantages of Using Wheel Pulleys

  • Wheel pulleys offer increased mechanical advantage for lifting heavy loads.

  • They are energy efficient and require less effort to move objects.

Process of Wheel Pulley


The mold is created to shape the wheel pulley according to specifications.


The molten raw materials are poured into the mold to form the wheel pulley.

Raw Materials
