Mécanélem 2000: a big hit!

At the end of April, Gates’ Power Transmission and Hose and Connector Divisions promoted numerous new products and literature on their 168 m2 joint stand at Mécanélem, one of Europe’s largest industrial fairs.

The eye-catcher on the PT stand was without doubt Eric Téboul’s dragster, which is equipped with a Poly Chain® GT2 for the main drive and a PowerGrip® GT2 for the compressor. With this dragster, Eric has reached the best time of his career, in part thanks to the high performance Gates synchronous belts.

The Hose and Connector Division presented its MegaSys Pressure hydraulic hose line and the MegaCrimp® and GlobalSpiral" no-skive couplings. Included in the new hydraulic product range is the MK3000 cutting machine, which was demonstrated by our engineers.
