An effective preventive maintenance program keeps your facility running safely and at optimum capacity.

Properly maintained belt drives can be your most cost-effective and reliable power transmission solution. Industrial belt drive performance is negatively impacted by many factors:

Gates can help:

  • Plant Survey: Inefficient and problem drives are identified and reported with cost saving actions you can take.
  • Preventive Maintenance (PM) Seminar: From product selection to installation, we instruct your personnel on key steps to maintaining a productive facility.

Contact Gates to learn more about these onsite opportunities.

Additional tools, available through your Gates distributors, simplify and accelerate preventive maintenance activities:

  • PM Training Kit: Get the information and tools your facility needs to keep drives running efficiently, including an instructional PM DVD, single barrel tension testers, sheave gauges, maintenance manuals and more. To order a kit, contact your Gates distributor or visit
