Rope sheaves unit rebuild service

Improve safety and reduce costs with maintenance-free rope sheaves

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 concept. Existing sheaves are modified resulting in a maintenance-free solution that needs no relubrication. This resolves problems related to grease leakage. In addition, a patented security locking system ensures that the sheaves cannot fall off the machine.
