Press release date: May 16, 2017
Gates Corporation, a global diversified manufacturer of industrial and automotive products, has introduced Poly Chain® ADV™, its next generation synchronous power transmission belt, the strongest, most durable product of its kind.
Poly Chain® ADV™ is manufactured using cutting-edge carbon fiber technology and proprietary tooth jacket material. Combined with Gates' engineering expertise and advanced manufacturing techniques, these improvements enable narrower and more durable synchronous power transmission belt drives.
"Gates has been the synchronous belt market leader for decades," said Taylor Jung, Director of Global Product Line Management – Synchronous Drives. "Poly Chain® ADV™ extends that leadership by offering our customers solutions to their most challenging applications."
Gates Poly Chain® ADV™ belt solutions reduce maintenance costs and replacement intervals compared to large, high-horsepower roller-chain drives. In comparison to large multi-strand v-belt drives, they deliver lower component wear, overall weight and system width while achieving energy savings. Poly Chain® ADV™ also offers 15% more power capacity than Gates Poly Chain® GT® Carbon™ belts which extends its ability to meet an increasingly wide range of applications, including the latest recreational vehicles, industrial dough mixers, metal stamping equipment and other vehicle and industrial automation applications.
