Lighter, more flexible MXT hoses from Gates

30 October, 2018

Gates has introduced the next generation of premium hydraulics with the new Gates MXT family of hoses. This patent-pending product line is a lighter weight and more flexible solution that meets or exceeds a wide range of industry standards, and addresses both replacement market and original equipment manufacturer needs.

It is designed for applications across industries such as agriculture, mining, construction and other end-markets with demanding performance requirements.

“We have been focused on enhancing our product development and manufacturing capabilities, and MXT is a great example of how these investments are starting to pay off,” said Ivo Jurek, CEO of Gates Industrial. “This innovative new product further demonstrates our ongoing dedication to push the boundaries of applied materials science and manufacturing processes to deliver solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers.”

Performance enhancement

Tom Pitstick, CMO and SVP of product line management for Gates Industrial, added: “Our customers have been telling us they want lighter, more flexible and easier-to-handle products that address multiple industry standards. They are seeking to enhance the performance of their machines, simplify their engineering processes, improve operational efficiencies and streamline inventory with a simplified selection of products that can be used on virtually any original equipment platform. MXT delivers on these needs and adds value to our customers beyond our premium product performance.”

In summary, Gates anticipates strong demand because MXT hoses deliver:

• More flexibility (up to 35% decreased force-to-bend compared to similar Gates compact products), allowing for faster and more ergonomic installation.

• Lighter weight (up to 30% compared to similar Gates compact products), for improved fuel efficiency, easier handling and reduced shipping costs.

• A coverage of approximately 90% of the hydraulic wire braid product applications (meeting or exceeding multiple industry standards).

• All the benefits of the Gates MegaSys product portfolio: longer lifetime, shorter minimum bend radii, etc.

• Compatibility with Gates MegaCrimp (crimp specifications available).
