Gates online catalogue presented at Automechanika 2006

Gates will soon release, for the first time, an internet catalogue at www.gatesautocat.com.  The online catalogue will be an extended version of the printed Drive Systems Catalogue, and it will be updated more frequently.  A demo of the internet catalogue will be presented at Automechanika.

For the first time, Gates will release the electronic version of its Drive Systems Catalogue on line, instead of on CD-rom.  The demo of this internet catalogue will be released at Automechanika in September 2006 and will then be made available at www.gatesautocat.com.  Visitors to the Gates stand at Automechanika will have the ability to sample the catalogue’s alphabetical, numerical, OE number and competitor number search engines.  Translations of the English abbreviations will also be available in 6 languages.  

The complete online catalogue will be released in the 2nd quarter of 2007.  This complete version will also contain article features and drawings, together with 

Micro-V® XF belt routing diagrams and translation of the abbreviations into 12 languages.  The online catalogue will also be extended to include Technical Bulletins, which don’t feature in the printed version, and it will be updated quarterly.
