Powerful Gates PTI products exhibited at Hanover Fair 2005

The Gates Industrial Power Transmission division participates again at the Hanover Fair, the world's leading showcase for industrial technology, April 11 through 15 (Hanover – Germany).   Gates Industrial Power Transmission division will exhibit its latest innovative high-tech products at stand 025-F21.  At the stand, a large space is dedicated to Gates Mectrol, the recent acquired manufacturer of urethane timing belts and motion control components.

Gates, leader in the manufacture of technologically advanced drive belts, will use the Hanover Fair as a platform to introduce its new state-of-the-art PowerGrip® GT3 synchronous belt to the wide audience.  This innovative rubber belt can transmit up to 30% more power than previous generation belts for the same base life and is available in five pitches: 2MGT, 3MGT, 5MGT, 8MGT and 14MGT.

Gates also announces increased power ratings for its polyurethane synchronous belt Poly Chain®.  This synchronous belt, the most powerful on the market, is ideal for high-torque, low-speed drives and offers an excellent alternative to roller chain and gear boxes.  The complete range has also been extended with 17 new sizes, available from stock.  In-depth tests in the range till 500 rpm (low speed, high torque) resulted in an upgrade of the power ratings of the Poly Chain® with 40%, ensuring the same service life.  

Premium Gates V-belts in the spotlight will be Quad-Power II, Gates’ most powerful raw edge, narrow-section V-belt for heavy-duty, high-speed drives with upgraded power ratings and the updated range Polyflex® JB™ polyurethane V-belts.
