SVI distributors have probably never encountered any sheaves this big. This 32" diameter sheave for 1" diameter wire rope cable is used at a shipyard in Puerto Rico to lift large boats for hull maintenance and painting. The salt water and the salt in the air took its toll over time on the original sheaves. When it was became time to replace the sheaves, SVI engineering was contacted for help. The corroded original sample was furnished to SVI engineering as a sample and a new precision drawing was created. SVI then produced two new sheaves for the shipyard so their boat lift could be restored to proper working order.
Possessing a can-do attitude is the sole reason why SVI did this job. It was really simple; SVI was the only company the shipyard could find that was willing to help. The next time this shipyard's maintenance staff needs something special, you can bet SVI will be their first call. This sort of thing happens all the time across many segments of industry. Every time someone needs a specially-engineered custom product or a solution to a specific need, who is always the answer? SVI is your Answer, the only answer!Previous ProjectNext Project
