Autopromotec Bologna – May 20th-24th , 2015

Gates, one of the world’s largest manufacturers and distributors of belts and tensioners, will be present for the first time with its own stand at Autopromotec 2015 in Bologna. On 64m², the company will highlight its system expertise, presenting the most extensive ranges for timing belt drive and accessory belt drive systems in the market, from OE quality belts and metals to kits. To complete Gates support package, necessary expert tools as well as online and printed catalogs to enable perfect installation and maintenance will also be displayed.

Gates’ most comprehensive timing belt kit range has been recently upgraded and offers now a total of 216 different kits with water pumps for a wide array of vehicle makes and models. A typical PowerGrip® kit includes in a box all the parts required for the overhaul of the timing belt system with one or more timing belts, tensioner(s), idler(s), bolts/springs, specific installation instructions, and an application-specific water pump with the required seals/gaskets.

Gates also proposes the broadest coverage for the overhaul of the accessory drive with Gates Micro-V® kits. The all-in-one-kits contain only guaranteed OE quality for belts as well as for metal components. Each kit is specifically composed for its application(s) and includes one or more Gates branded multi-ribbed belts together with the matching metal parts. In addition to Micro-V® belts, tensioners and idlers, the range also offers kits with matching torsional vibration dampers and/or overrunning alternator pulleys.

As of today, independent workshops will find truck and bus maintenance a lot easier thanks to Gates new range of heavy-duty Extra Service belt kits (including Micro-V® belts and tensioners) that Gates will also display on the stand. Gates’ commercial vehicle programme is specially designed for trouble-free and long-lasting service in the demanding working conditions of trucks and buses.
