The Gates Corporation Key Developments
Gates Corporation to Introduce New High-Mileage Sprockets for Expedition Cyclists and Global Bike Trekkers at Eurobike 2015
Aug 10 15
Gates Corporation will introduce new high-mileage sprockets for expedition cyclists and global bike trekkers at Eurobike 2015. The CDX:EXP sprockets are designed for use with Rohloff hubs and offer extended range in abrasive off-road conditions. The extra durability derives from the 25% increase in surface area compared to regular CDX sprockets. Rohloff is a close partner of Gates, and its hubs combined with Gates belt drives are an increasingly popular application for trekking cyclists who seek a low-maintenance, strong and clean alternative to chains and derailleurs. Despite their extra strength, the CDX:EXP sprockets weigh only a few grams more than current CDX sprockets due to a redesign of the sprocket interface. The CDX:EXP sprockets are currently available in three front sizes and four rear sizes for consumers who want to upgrade their existing CDX drive. The 39-tooth front sprocket is also designed for use with Pinion gearboxes. Electric bikes and commuter bikes remain the biggest sales categories for Gates, which will show a range of new belt drive bikes and eBikes at Eurobike and Demo Day from brands including HNF Heisenberg, Cube, GTech, Kalkhoff, Biomega, Stevens, Klaxon, Riese and Muller, Butchers & Bicycles, Cannondale, Bergamont, Ghost, Kettler, Ibex, BME and Cannondale. HNF Heisenberg is a new brand that has introduced three eBikes with Gates Carbon Drive and Bosch drive systems, including a first-of-its-kind full-suspension electric mountain bike whose suspension linkage was designed by BMW. Karlheinz Nicolai, one of the Heisenberg founders, is also the head of Universal Transmissions, the Gates Carbon Drive distributor for Europe and a research and development partner for Gates. Other new product highlights include the new lower-priced CDN belt system. Gates is working closely with Thun in Europe and FSA in Asia to design and make available bottom brackets specific for the CDN system. Gazelle will introduce a new commuter bike at Eurobike that uses the CDN system.
Gates Corporation Introduces New Serpentine Belt Inspection Tool
Aug 4 15
Gates Corporation introduced its new Belt Wear Gauge tool for serpentine belt inspection. Designed with input from professional technicians, the small, lightweight tool provides a simple and reliable way to determine belt wear by gauging material loss between belt grooves and providing instant pass/fail results. The new and improved tool makes it easy for professional technicians to diagnose the proper preventive maintenance for customers. It can be used on any open, straight surface on the belt and can also be used one-handed, on or off the vehicle, and in places that are hard to see. Technicians press the tool into the belt grooves with light pressure and then attempt to rock the gauge in a lateral motion. If the gauge remains tightly seated, the belt has sufficient service life remaining and does not need to be replaced. If the gauge allows lateral rocking movement, it indicates that the belt ribs are worn enough to allow belt slip and that the belt should be replaced.
Gates Corporation Announces Release of 284 New Automotive Aftermarket Parts
May 22 15
Gates Corporation announced it has expanded its extensive Original Equipment (OE) quality automotive products line with 284 new part numbers. This release has several new introductions across product categories. Highlights include a new Power Steering Filter that extends steering system life and helps to eliminate pump warranties. Also, 11 new OE-Exact Fan Pulley Brackets which cover over 6 million VIO, are made with high quality bearings and casting materials to provide the proper structure and support needed for the fan clutch. In addition, a new Hose Connector Assortment with hard-to-find reducer and "Y" connector components, includes a range of premium automotive fittings with 17 components in total. Gates expands product coverage with two additions to its growing hydraulics line. New 90 Degree Live Swivel Couplings for hydraulic applications are now available. Made for hydraulic equipment with complex twisting and turning components to prevent torsional forces from being transmitted to the hose, these long-lasting, trouble-free couplings mean fewer hose failures and less equipment downtime. Gates also introduced 103 new MegaCrimp® Couplings with TuffCoat™ Xtreme® Plating. The specialized coating exceeds SAE standards and offers unsurpassed protection against rust and corrosion that can damage a hydraulic system.
