Gates present at BAUMA 2004

Erembodegem – This year again, Gates Hose & Connectors Europe will be present at the BAUMA fair in München (Germany).  At this international trade fair for the construction industry the Gates Hose & Connectors stand will be located in Hall A5 at Stand 514.

SafeHydraulicsThe big news at the Gates stand will be the launch of Gates’ “Safe Hydraulics” programme.  This extensive education programme focuses on preventive maintenance and safety in maintenance and repair operations.  As an industry leader, Gates wants to share its expertise by providing information and programmes that pull all users on the right track to safe, long-lasting, cost-efficient hydraulic assemblies.  “Safe Hydraulics” seminars by certified trainers hold a key position in this programme.  The “Safe Hydraulics” programme is a natural fit with Gates’ integrated approach, where the company positions itself as a provider of high-performance, quality products and support.  

At the fair special attention will be given to the Gates spiral wire hoses, with the new EnviroFluid™ hydraulic hose tube.  The EnviroFluid™ spiral wire hose is designed with Gates’ special nitrile tube stock that prevents environmentally friendly fluids from seeping through the tube and blistering the cover.  Gates’ no-skive GlobalSpiral® couplings perfectly fit all sizes of the EnviroFluid™ hose and ensure extended service life.  

Other products in the spotlight will be TuffCoat™, a new, enhanced zinc-based coating for Gates hydraulic couplings providing an estimated four times greater corrosion resistance than standard zinc or cadmium plating and the XtraTuff™ and MegaTuff® abrasion resistant hydraulic hose coverings. 

Especially useful in the construction sector is Gates’ flexible CM2T-TWIN Megaflex® hose, consisting of two high-quality rubber hoses vulcanised together to form one single and solid unit excluding hose-to-hose abrasion.  This product is ideal for all applications where pressure and return lines have to be routed together over longer distances. 

All Gates’ Hose and Connectors products are backed by intensive testing, ongoing research and product development support to meet changing needs.  Furthermore, timely product delivery and high service levels are key priorities within the company.
