Fluid power solutions made easy

11 June, 2024

For fluid power solutions, accessibility to versatile tools and comprehensive data is crucial for efficient system specification and application. Recognising this need, Gates, the provider of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions, has developed a range of online and mobile resources to support users in optimising its hydraulic applications.

These resources encompass various functionalities, from specifying and selecting hoses and couplings to obtaining precise crimping data necessary for producing high-quality hose assemblies. Recent enhancements to these tools aim to facilitate faster, more precise, and mobile-friendly workflows.

At the core of Gates’ offerings is the Knowledge Centre, serving as a repository of valuable information. Here, users can explore Gates’ wide product range through user-friendly catalogues such as Gates Hose & Couplings and Gates Tube Fittings. These publications provide detailed product information along with supplementary resources like the Chemical Resistance Table and product selection guidance.

For those actively involved in developing hydraulic applications, Gates offers download portals such as Gates DesignConnect and Gates Cadenas. These portals provide technical information, part numbers, specifications, and access to modeling programs and CAD functions.

Ensuring the proper crimping of hydraulic hose assemblies is essential for safety and performance. Gates addresses this need with the enhanced Gates eCrimp Database, offering an intuitive redesign and additional features. Users can save searches, manage crimp spec sheets, and download them as needed. This database seamlessly integrates with the Gates eCrimp Mobile app, providing offline access to assembly specs, even in remote locations.

Whether in the office, on-site, or on the move, Gates say its suite of online and mobile tools offer comprehensive support for fluid power system design, specification, and application. The Gates Knowledge Centre serves as a valuable resource, providing industry-leading expertise to empower users and drive progress in the field of fluid power solutions.
