Steel Cable Sheave With Composite Insert

Problem: The bearings of a large steel cable pulley were worn out and hard to lubricate due to the location and lack of preventative maintenance.

Solution: Machined an all steel housing and steel cable pulley with a totally maintenance free non re-lubable composite bearing insert. The PV’s were calculated and a engineered plastic was provided to solve the maintenance headache of having to lubricate the bearing.
