Rope sheave units

Improve safety and reduce costs with virtually maintenance-free rope sheaves

Rope Sheave Unit
Sheaves are often in hard-to-access locations making relubrication difficult. Because of this, insufficient lubrication or over-greasing are relatively common. These can lead to bearing failures and contamination of the paper. More importantly, rope sheaves come loose and fall off the machine posing risks to machinery and staff.

SKF has developed a new rope sheave unit concept resulting in a virtually maintenance-free solution that needs no relubrication. This resolves problems related to grease leakage. In addition, a patented locking system stops sheaves falling off the machines.
