Gates Hose & Connectors Europe at Motion & Control 2004

28-30 Sept. at the NEC in Birmingham, England

St Neots – Gates Hose & Connectors Europe will be present at  “Motion & Control 2004”, one of the UK’s largest international fluid power exhibitions.  Gates Hose & Connectors can be found in Hall 4. The stand will not only showcase the Gates’ high-quality range of hoses and connectors but also their integrated approach to achieving superior quality, safer hydraulic hose assemblies. Motion and Control will also mark the launch of the much-anticipated Safe Hydraulics programme which finally brings the Gates message of preventive maintenaince and safety in a practical and easy to follow approach tailored to the needs of end-users.

The Safe Hydraulics programme is only available via the Gates network of distributor-partners and covers the hydraulic hose assembly safety and preventive maintenance spectrum from beginning to end.  With this program Gates Hose & Connectors Europe not only affirm their position as industry leaders but also their unwavering commitment to ensure that end-users are given all the tools needed to put them on the right track to safer, long-lasting, cost-efficient hydraulic assemblies. The Safe Hydraulics programme is managed by Gates’ select corps of Application Engineers who ensure that the programme seminars – disseminated by a small group of certified trainers - are held to the highest standards of quality.

Gates Hose & Connectors Europe will also be featuring their new breakthrough 8M5K hose – which finally allows users access to a wirebraid hose which withstands 350 Bar with a minimum bend radius of only 90mm! Conceived for integrated use with the Gates global range of MegaCrimp® couplings, 8M5K has the potential to outperform all competitors. When coupled to MegaCrimp® in accordance with Gates’ integrated guidelines (with Gates’ proprietary crimpers, dies, crimp data settings and procedures) 8M5K has been developed to withstand impulse testing to 600,000 cycles - above and beyond any standard in the world.

Other products in the spotlight at Motion and Control will be: 
·         The XtraTuff™ and MegaTuff® abrasion resistant hydraulic hose covers, which are respectively 25 x and 300 x more resistant than Gates’ toughest regular hydraulic hose cover.
·         The TuffCoat™ enhanced zinc-based coating for Gates hydraulic couplings, which provides an estimated 4 x greater corrosion resistance than standard zinc or cadmium plating 
·         The EnviroFluid™ range hoses which feature a nitrile hose tube resistant to even aggressive biodegradable oils.
