Simple machine consisting of a fixed, grooved wheel, sometimes in a block, around which a rope or chain can be run. A simple pulley serves only to change the direction of the applied effort (as in a simple hoist for raising loads). The use of more than one pulley results in a mechanical advantage, so that a given effort can raise a heavier load.

The mechanical advantage depends on the arrangement of the pulleys. For instance, a block and tackle arrangement with three ropes supporting the load will lift it with one-third of the effort needed to lift it directly (if friction is ignored), giving a mechanical advantage of three.

Bairstow Lifting Products Co., Inc. offers a variety of wire rope sheaves from a large line of manufactures to meet OEM replacement specifications. Additionally, we can custom mill a wire rope sheave to you desired measurements, including to OEM specifications, generally faster than one can be obtained by the OEM.
