    • Predator® V Belts

    • The highest rated and most robust V-belt ever designed
      Gates Predator® V-belts, Gates’ most recent addition to the range, are the markets’ leading V-belts.

      Unique in their extreme robustness and high load carrying capability they are unrivalled. They are excellent problem solvers that perform well in harsh environments and in extremely demanding applications where standard V-belts have performance issues. Where standard V-belts don’t meet the challenge, Gates Predator® V-belts are the solution!

      The Predator® belt difference is in the construction: they have the highest power density of any V-belt and virtually zero stretch because of the use of high strength, high modulus aramid tensile cords.
    • HI-POWER®  V Belts

    • Wrapped V-belt of conventional cross-section
      The wrapped classic section Hi-Power® V-belt has a long reputation for reliability on agricultural and industrial applications. The arched top of the Hi-Power® belt provides superior strength to prevent “dishing” and distortion of the tensile section. The cords are properly aligned, each of them carrying its full share of the load. The Flex Weave® oil and heat resistant cover increases the angle facing the direction of pull. As a result, the Flex Weave® fabric develops even less stress for a given amount of bending.
    • Quad-Power II  V Belts

    • Raw edge, moulded notch, narrow section V-belt
      Quad-Power® II is Gates’ top of-the-range narrow section V-belt for heavy-duty industrial drives. It has been developed to replace traditional V-belts on applications where space and weight savings are critical: Quad-Power® II is the V belt with the highest power capacity, even on small pulley diameters. Improved resistance to outside bends allows the use of back idlers. The new optimized notch profile makes the belts run smoothly in the pulley grooves.
    • SUPER HC® MN V Belts

    • Raw edge, moulded notch, narrow section V-belt
      In addition to the Super HC® wrapped, narrow section V-belt, Gates markets the Super HC® Moulded Notch V-belt construction. Super HC® MN V-belts put more power where high speeds, high speed ratios or small pulley diameters are required, thus offering significant advantages over classical section V-belts. Developed through specialized research, Super HC® MN is highly recommended for use on all industrial heavy-duty, narrow section V-belt drives. The Super HC® MN increased transmission efficiency allows more compact and highly economical drive design. Super HC‚ MN belts are available up to 4750 mm ISO datum lengths.
    • Powerband® V Belts

    • Multiple V-belt
      Gates PowerBand® offers a solution for drives where single belts vibrate, turn over or jump off the pulleys. PowerBand® is especially developed for drives subjected to pulsating loads. It consists of several V-belts joined together by a permanent, high strength tie band, thus being tougher than all the belts taken separately. PowerBand® is available in SPB, SPC, 8V/25J, 9J, 15J, 3VX and 5VX sections. B, C and D sections are available on request.
    • Micro-V® V Belts

    • Belts recreational

    • BOOST™ variable-speed replacement belts from Gates provide top performance for CVT drives of gasoline powered vehicles in the 50 cc to 600 cc range and stand up to any sporty riding style. Gates puts all its expertise into developing belts you can rely on. BOOST™ belts are very durable and therefore an intelligent investment in the performance and reliability of your recreational vehicle.
    • Belts agricultural

    • Premium quality agricultural belts assuring reliability... even under the toughest conditions
      Agricultural belts work in the heaviest conditions possible. Combines work outdoors, often in constant sunlight and therefore hot conditions. In addition, the belts are subjected to dust, dirt, stones and other objects that may enter between the belt and the pulley.

      For all these reasons, you should only use belts specifically designed for use on agricultural applications, as these are built to specifications capable of withstanding such harsh conditions. They are robust and reinforced, composed of materials that are both very flexible and resistant, like aramid or polyester tensile members, specific elastomeric compounds or highly resistant cover bands.
  • Flexible couplings

      • EuroGrip® Flexible Couplings

      • Electronic speed controls are increasingly being used in industry. In response to this requirement, Gates has developed a flexible coupling range covering standard motor sizes. Gates EuroGrip® flexible couplings consist of a rubber sleeve and two metal end pieces. The design of Gates EuroGrip® flexible couplings is unique, with its OGEE lines(1) allowing the coupling to act as a torque/life indicator for the drive.

        Gates EuroGrip® flexible couplings are available in sizes 19, 28, 42, 48 and 60 and are bored to suit a taper bush or a plain bore and keyway. Gates EuroGrip® flexible couplings have high vibration damping capacity, which makes them especially suitable for direct drive applications in pumps and compressors. Their high compliance is especially appreciated by designers of speed control systems, where resonance can be a problem. The zero backlash characteristics result in high positioning accuracy and repeatability, allowing a wide range of applications in the linear actuator market.
