Gates launches online application catalogue

Gates has released the Gates European Automotive Web Catalogue at www.gatesautocat.com.  This online catalogue is an extended version of the printed Passenger Car and Light-duty Vehicle Catalogues for belt drive systems.  In addition, the online catalogue includes all application data for cooling systems as well.

For the first time, Gates has released an online version of its Applications Catalogues.  Complete application information on Gates belts, kits, hoses and thermostats is now only one click away.  Product search is extremely easy; the Gates web catalogue allows an alphabetical and numerical search, as well as a competitor number and OE number search both for drive systems and cooling systems products.  

The Gates online catalogue is currently available in 5 languages and will soon be extended with additional languages.   This online catalogue is offering complete information including drawings and Micro-V® XF belt routing diagrams.

So far only passenger car application data have been made available. The heavy duty section is foreseen early 2007.  In the near future the online catalogue will be extended to include Technical Bulletins, which do not feature in the printed version.  This new online catalogue will be updated regularly to provide the market and Gates customers with the most accurate and up-to-date application data.
