Powerful innovative Gates products at MSV International Engineering Fair

The Gates Corporation, world-leading manufacturer in belts and hoses, participates at the MSV, International Engineering Fair 2004 at BRNO (Czech Republic), September 20 through 24.   Gates Industrial Power Transmission division will exhibit its latest innovative high-tech products in Hall D, stand 12.

Gates, leader in the manufacture of technologically advanced drive belts, will use the MSV fair as a platform to introduce its new state-of-the-art PowerGrip® GT3 synchronous belt.  This innovative rubber belt can transmit up to 30% more power than previous generation belts for the same base life.  

Gates also announces upgraded power ratings for its Poly Chain® GT2 polyurethane belts.  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.  

Special attention will also be paid to the extended Gates SynchroPower® polyurethane belt range.  The existing range comprising single belts, slabs and open-end belts has been extended by numerous pitch profiles and a vast amount of open-end belt constructions (LL) and now also holds Welded belts (W) and Gates Truly Endless belts (GTE).

Other products 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, the updated Polyflex® JB™ polyurethane V-belt range and Gates EuroGrip® flexible couplings.
