Types of Wheel Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys are stationary and change the direction of the force applied. They are commonly used in flagpoles or lifting heavy objects.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys have a sheave that moves with the load, reducing the amount of force needed. They are often used in elevators or cranes.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to provide a mechanical advantage. They are ideal for lifting extremely heavy loads with minimal effort.

4. Examples and Applications

  • Fixed pulleys are preferred for simple lifting operations where direction change is needed.
  • Movable pulleys are used in situations where the load needs to be moved vertically with ease.
  • Compound pulleys are chosen for heavy lifting tasks like construction or industrial applications.

1. Mold

The mold is created based on the design specifications of the wheel pulley.

2. Casting

The molten metal is poured into the mold to form the wheel pulley shape.

3. Raw Materials

High-quality materials like steel or aluminum are used to ensure durability.

4. Production

The wheel pulley is manufactured using precision machinery and techniques.

5. Testing

Each wheel pulley undergoes rigorous testing to ensure quality and performance.

6. Antirust Treatment

A protective coating is applied to prevent rust and corrosion.

7. Seperate Inspection

Individual inspection is done to check for any defects or imperfections.

8. Marking

Each wheel pulley is marked with relevant information for identification.

Choosing the Right Wheel Pulley

1. Consider Load Capacity

Ensure the wheel pulley can handle the weight of the load it will be lifting.
