Gates Hose & Connectors at Hanover Fair 2005

Gates Hose & Connectors Europe will be present at “Hanover Fair 2005”, the world's leading showcase for industrial technology.  Gates Hose & Connectors can be found in Hall 21, Stand B11. The stand will not only showcase the Gates’ high-quality range of hose and connectors but also their integrated approach to achieving superior quality, safer hydraulic hose assemblies. 

The Gates Hose & Connectors Integrated System is a comprehensive approach which combines superior products, advanced crimping machines and dies with validated  ready-to-use crimp data, ensuring not only compliance to European legislation but also performance levels above and beyond international standards. 

At the stand, Gates’ new 8M5K hose will be in the spotlight.  This breakthrough hose finally allows users access to a wire-braid hose withstanding 350 Bar with a minimum bend radius of only 90mm! Conceived for integrated use with the Gates global range of MegaCrimp® couplings, 8M5K has the potential to outperform all competitors. When coupled to MegaCrimp® in accordance with the Gates integrated approach (using Gates crimpers, dies, crimp data settings and procedures) 8M5K has been developed to withstand impulse testing to 600,000 cycles - above and beyond any standard in the world.

The Hanover Fair will also feature the Safe Hydraulics programme which finally brings the Gates message of preventive maintenance and safety to end-users in a practical and easy to follow approach tailored to their needs.  The Safe Hydraulics programme is only available via the Gates network of distributor-partners, covers the hydraulic hose assembly safety and preventive maintenance spectrum from beginning to end.  With this programme Gates Hose & Connectors Europe not only affirm their position as industry leaders but also their unwavering commitment to ensure that end-users are given all the tools needed to put them on the right track to safer, long-lasting, high-performance hydraulic assemblies.
