Increase uptime with proper belt maintenance

Gates Corporation

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 www.gates.com/pmkit.
  • Sonic Tension Meter (product #7420-0507): Get quick, accurate tension readings for all types of synchronous belt and V-belt drives.
  • EZ Align (product #7420-1000): Use this precision laser alignment device to quickly and easily align your belt drive systems.
