“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 replacement products that can be used on virtually any original equipment platform,” said Tom Pitstick, CMO and SVP of Product Line Management for Gates Industrial. “MXT delivers on these needs and adds value to our customers beyond just premium product performance.”

Gates MXT Features:

  • More flexible with an average of 40 percent decreased force-to-bend (compared to similar Gates products), allowing for faster and more ergonomic installation
  • Up to 30 percent lighter weight for improved fuel efficiency, easier handling and reduced shipping costs

Gates Braided Hose Manufacture

Ever wondered how Gates 1 or 2 wire braided hose is manufactured?

See a short clip below showing the braiding machine in action.

 

 

Were ever possible we use Gates hose and fittings due to there unparalleled quality and durability.

See some of our range of Gates Braided Hose and  MegaCrimp Couplings on our fluid connectors product pages or Contact Us any time.

And remember that Gates eCrimp provides the most up-to-date crimp specifications for all Gates hose and fitting combinations.

Gates-eCrimp

The Gates MegaCrimp couplings give you a leak-proof seal that’s so innovative, it’s patented*. During testing, it surpassed one million impulse cycles.  MegaCrimp couplings set a new standard for hydraulic couplings. The unique “C” insert ensures “weep-free” concentric crimping to keep equipment and the environment clean.

FULL-TORQUE NUT™ DESIGN – One of the most common causes of hydraulic leaks is a cracked coupling nut or seat due to over-torquing by a strong-armed worker. Gates has engineered a solution – Full-Torque Nut™ technology now available on Gates MegaCrimp and GlobalSpiral® couplings.
