Nylacast Sheaves

Nylacast has been at the forefront of design and application development of sheaves for over 40 years. Utilising the latest in CAD/CAM technology and enhanced engineering excellence, Nylacast sheaves have been in demand for many decades.

This coupled with our expertise and knowledge in polymer materials makes Nylacast sheaves the ideal choice for your application. Industry users for Nylacast Sheaves include those involved in Construction Equipment, Oil & Gas, Agriculture, Food Processing & Packaging and Quarrying & Mining to name but a few.

Nylacast Sheaves provide a number of advantages over the use of traditional steel sheaves. Utilising advanced polymers, in particular those based around cast nylon, allow for a number of significant advantages in sheave applications. These include increased wire rope life, reduced component weight, protection against corrosion and reduced maintenance costs whilst offering increased lifting performance. In addition, Nylacast sheaves can be specifically formulated with modifiers and internal lubricants appropriate to end use, allowing for further improvements in performance and efficiency for particular client and application needs and requirements.
