Besides being an integral part of blocks, sheaves are also used in a wide variety of applications, not only limited to cranes. Huabei has developed a standard line of sheaves that are used for most wire ropes. The materials are including Cast Iron sheaves, Cast Steel sheaves,Ductile Cast Iron sheaves,Hot-rolled steel sheaves. Huabei’s sheaves can be used all types of equipment from mobile cranes to overhead cranes…all types of applications from lifting drill pipe to opening dam gates…all types of industries from mining to marine, logging to construction.
