Sheaves and Wheels

Sheaves and engineered wheels come in many sizes, materials and bearings to match your exact application.

We routinely make large, non-standard wheels. These include rope sheaves, pressure wheels, lifting wheels, running wheels for locks, and panama wheels, which are suitable for subsea or deep-water use, and sandy, polluted or very cold environments.

Common applications include offshore installations, ship cranes, dredgers, bridges and locks, and any other system that uses steel wire rope to pull large loads.

Rope and running surfaces are made of high-grade cast steel and can be hardened to precise specifications. We also offer a full choice of surface treatments, such as special protective coating or hot dip galvanizing. Jominy tests and third party checking (Bureau Veritas, ABS, Lloyds) can be carried out on request.
