PLYMOUTH, Mass. — Suncor Stainless, a leading manufacturer of stainless steel hardware, announced the launch of PullPro, a new line of premium stainless steel blocks and sheaves designed to address an industry need for versatile, robust and long-lasting block assemblies to meet today’s demanding applications.
PullPro blocks and sheaves are available for fibrous or wire rope and are comprised of only the highest quality raw materials. The blocks are available with five different attachment types, allowing the user to choose an assembly that meets the needs of their application. Attachment types include a forged swivel eye, forged D shackle, forged bow shackle, forged swivel hook and a machined bolt head.
PullPro blocks feature a unique three-way head configuration that allows a single block to offer incredible versatility and multiple usages through fixed 0°, fixed 90°, and free swivel modes. While competitors' products would require three independent blocks to achieve multiple head configurations, PullPro blocks offer the versatility of utilizing one block. Users can stock a reduced inventory and provide greater options for changes in the field without having to swap out the block for another configuration. This is especially beneficial if fibrous or wire rope is already setup through the blocks and saves a considerable amount of time.
“PullPro premium stainless steel block assemblies are designed to meet the demands of real-world applications," said product manager Seth Porter. "The variety of sheave types, hub styles, attachments and unique three-way head configuration allow the user to select a block for a specific need, while allowing flexibility in the field.”
PullPro sheaves are comprised of high-quality grade 316 stainless steel and incorporate a weight optimized design with recessed sides and lightening holes. They feature either stainless steel ball bearing or bronze bushing type hub styles. Stainless steel spacers are included with most of the bronze bushing style sheaves. The inclusion of spacers adds a new level of versatility by allowing a standard sheave to adapt to various shaft sizes.
