Hanover Fair 2005 success for Gates

Erembodegem - Gates’ presence at this year’s Hanover Fair in Hanover (Germany) did not go unnoticed.  The two Gates stands (Gates Industrial Power Transmission in Hall 25 and Gates Fluid Power in Hall 21) drew widespread interest from visitors with their high-tech products and the application oriented and direct approach.  Thanks to the large number of high-quality customer and prospect contacts, the show can already be called a success for Gates. 

Hanover2005_FPThe Gates Fluid Power stand in Hall 21 did not only showcase the Gates’ Global range of hoses and couplings, but also the Gates Integrated System Approach to achieving superior hose assemblies and Gates’ commitment to a higher standard in safety with the Safe Hydraulics programme.  Several participants commented that this programme fills a key need in the market place.  “The market place is getting more and more safety conscious and with local and European legislation getting tougher in these areas, this has become a hot topic.  One which the Safe Hydraulics programme and the Gates Integrated System Approach are directly targeted towards”, said a proud Gates application engineer.  The Gates 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.  The superiority of the Gates Global products was translated into 14 major advantages, offering the customers a range of benefits unseen in the industry. These advantages were demonstrated on a Neusson excavator entirely equipped with Gates Global superior hose assemblies.  The Safe Hydraulics programme brings the Gates message of preventive maintenance and safety to end-users in a practical and easy to follow approach tailored to their needs.  

Hanover2005_PTIAlso the Gates Industrial Power Transmission stand in Hall 25, presenting Gates’ latest high-tech product developments and a variety applications demonstrating the preference of OE manufacturers for Gates, received a great deal of attention. Next to the Harley-Davidson VRSCA V-Rod® equipped with Gates Poly Chain® polyurethane synchronous belt and the IXI bicycle, also featuring a Poly Chain® belt drive instead of a chain drive, the conveyor application presented at the stand drew a lot of interest.  This conveyor was equipped with Gates’ latest TransMotion™ rubber synchronous belt with conveyor cord.  The Hanover Fair also served 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.
