Gates eCrimp app offers advances across hydraulics product range

05 October, 2020

vGates, the global provider of fluid power and power transmission solutions, recently added a universal mobile app to its expanding range of hydraulics solutions. The eCrimp app builds on a previous North America-focused version, adding global capability, automatic updates and new functionality to assist fluid power customers across a wide variety of industries, applications and geographic regions.

This smartphone version of the eCrimp app offers a host of new features and benefits:

Global capabilities – Select region to see local products

Save favourites – Quick access to most used assemblies

Live crimp specs – Automatic updates when connected to WIFI

Offline functionality – Content is available regardless of connectivity

Data on new products – Refreshed via automatic updates

Dynamic search capability – Flexible ways to find your solution

Product image library – Product images validate selections

Copy and email specs – Easy sharing and communication

Tom Pitstick, Gates CMO and senior vice president of Product Line Management, comments: “Intelligent innovation is central to the way we do business at Gates, and Safe Hydraulics activities are always a priority, regardless of who you are or where you are located.” He adds that the eCrimp app is the latest example of Gates listening to its customers, analysing data from the field and the lab, and synthesising that information to further improve Gates’ portfolio of fluid power solutions. “The app and our other new hydraulics products are a result of our commitment to engineering innovation,” says Pitstick.

Highlighting the importance of needing to easily communicate crimp specifications to customers, Gates recently introduced new hydraulics products, including MegaSys MXG 4K, MXT and Multi Master GMV, which are all claimed to offer lighter weight, lower force to bend, multi-specification coverage (for reduced inventory requirements) and effective performance. Gates also substantially expanded its hydraulics product offering, adding the PRO Series line for standard-duty applications to complement the existing MegSys line for high-power, high-pressure applications.

“Simply put,” adds Pitstick, “we are driving new technology into our portfolio. With the eCrimp app, and a significant increase in the number of new product introductions in general, we demonstrate our ability to drive continuous product innovation.”

The Gates eCrimp app is available now for free download. Look for the black icon in the iOS App Store or Android Play Store.
