  • Next generation belts designed to meet performance requirements of multiple market segments; EXTENDTM series for emerging markets launching in Q4 2018

    DENVER, Oct. 30, 2018 — Gates (NYSE: GTES), a leading global provider of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions, today announced the launch of a new platform of belts for engine accessory drive systems.

    The next generation platform leverages Gates’ materials science and process engineering capabilities to deliver improved product performance tailored for specific market segments. The combination of newly developed material compounds and product design reduces belt weight by an average of 15% and results in approximately 35% lower bending stiffness. These improvements enable tighter pulley configurations and reduced drive bending losses by up to 30% as compared to existing belt technologies; lower losses result in reduced energy consumption, CO2 emissions and heat generation.

    Gates belts, including this new platform, are validated to the latest industry standards including the SAE J2432 specification for accessory drive belts, and are put through extensive field trials to confirm performance in real-world conditions. The advanced processes developed to manufacture this product portfolio reduce manufacturing waste and enable use of elastomers which are more environmentally-friendly than the chlorinated compounds frequently used in belt constructions. 

    “The launch of our new platform of MICRO-V® belts broadens our power transmission portfolio and positions us for additional growth in the replacement market,” said Tom Pitstick, CMO and senior vice president of Product Line Management for Gates. “This product launch is another example of our engineering, product management and commercial teams working with our customers to develop application-specific products, and of our commitment to continually bring new innovations to the market. Perhaps most importantly, this new platform will help our channel partners support their customers’ needs and further strengthen the partnerships we have built over many years.”

    The first family of products from this new MICRO-V® platform is the EXTENDTM series which is specifically designed to meet the performance requirements of customers in emerging markets where the population of vehicles that are in or are entering into the traditional maintenance cycle is growing rapidly. It is launching in Q4 2018 and will be available in a variety of sizes to cover a wide portfolio of vehicles in operation within these markets.

    Additional MICRO-V® products based off the same platform and manufacturing capability, but with performance levels targeted for at developed markets, as well as heavy-duty and first-fit applications, will be launched throughout 2019.

  • Gates Complete Serpentine Kit
    Automotive Replacement Kit to restore the complete automotive serpentine belt drive system....

  • Save time and energy with the Gates Serpentine Replacement Kit for your automotive accessory belt drive systems. All Gates kits are specifically designed and manufactured as a complete solution for a specific application. These kits are recommended for any job where you’re already removing a serpentine belt. These kits include a Gates Micro-V Serpentine Belt(s), related DriveAlign Tensioner(s) and Idler Pulley(s) as required per the system. Think critical repairs like the alternator, A/C compressor, water pump or power steering pumps: all connected by the belt. The best way to prevent costly system failure is to begin replacing worn components at 90,000 miles, or as advised by the manufacturer. Remove It, Replace It!
  • Modular Hose
    Modular hose is defined as a hose assembly with one or more internal components in which coolant flows. These hoses are very application specific and without each component the system could fail. Gates Modular Hose is OE Identical or Equivalent....

  • Change in the automotive realm is more evident than ever.  Hybrids, alternative fuels, electric, hydrogen; all new technologies we are seeing in today’s vehicles.  The cooling system in today’s cars and trucks is much more complex, requiring cooling (and heating) to supplementary areas of the vehicle; axillary heaters, turbocharger, fuel system, motors, inverters.  Coolant is transported to these areas, via radiator or heater hose, and has seen immense change with a variety of components now built into the hose and sold as assemblies.  These hose assemblies are what we refer to as “Modular” coolant hose. The supplemental components within the hose are very specific to a vehicle and critical to proper cooling system operation as well as the overall performance and durability of the vehicle.  Gates has the largest offering of these Modular Hose Assemblies in the Aftermarket.
