DENVER, -- Gates Corporation, a global, diversified manufacturer of automotive, industrial, and heavy-duty products, introduces its new System Smart Belt Education Display.  The dual-sided, 3D interactive belt display shows how the individual components of the timing and the serpentine systems work together and wear at the same rate.  All information on the countertop display is in both English and Spanish.  Educational brochures on total system maintenance as well as a discussion guide for repair shops are also included.

The display will enable repair shops to educate customers of the importance of serpentine and timing belt system maintenance.  It is intended to help customers understand how components work and wear in unison so that they can make informed decisions regarding total system replacement in order to prevent inconvenient breakdowns and costly repairs.
