Goodway Industries custom thermoset and thermoplastic products, including bushings, bearings, wear pads, and sheaves. We specialize in working with nonmetallic materials that can replace metal components in demanding applications, such as pulleys.
A sheave is a grooved wheel that holds the cable, rope, or wire on a pulley system. The sheave is situated on an axle or bearing within the pulley, and an operator can adjust the amount of force and direction necessary for lifting. The sheave’s movement helps reduce friction and wear on the rope or cable. Sheaves can be found in forklifts, cranes, cable stranding machines, and wire drawing machines.
Cast Nylon is a popular material for sheaves because of its durability and versatility. In fact, nylon sheaves offer a number of advantages over their metal counterparts. Learn more about the benefits and applications of sheaves.
Ropeway Pulley Applications
Goodway Industries fabricates many types of sheaves for applications in the heavy equipment industry. One of these settings is floating and shipboard cranes, where sheaves must withstand harsh marine environments. Sheaves also run conveyors on material processing equipment. In addition, fire trucks utilize our sheaves for rescue pulley systems.
