Gates announced the introduction of a new thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) belt, called the Gates Parabolic Pitch (GPP) in 8mm and 14mm profiles. The new GPP belts are stronger, more durable, quieter, safer to operate and require less maintenance than other alternatives, including alternative rubber belts, roller chains and steel cables.

"At Gates, we're continually in search of market opportunities where our materials science expertise and drive to innovate can create added value for our customers. The new GPP belts are the latest examples of our efforts," said Scott Manley, general manager, Gates TPU. "In addition to expanding our TPU product range, GPP is another example of our commitment to replace legacy technologies with engineered belt solutions that are more efficient, lighter, cleaner, safer and quieter to operate than traditional roller chains, and last up to five times longer than steel cables."

The new GPP belts are designed for intralogistics, material handling, vertical lift, door opening and industrial automation applications

The high-strength, reinforced steel (RSL) GPP 14-RSL has the highest break strength of any 14mm pitch TPU belt, and the standard product versions are compatible with Timken's RPP® sprockets, making them suitable drop-in replacements across a wide range of applications. Gates GPP belts are equipped with nylon fabric on the tooth sides for high abrasion resistance and quieter operation, and the optional low temperature construction offers an operating range from -30 °C up to +50 °C. GPP belts complement Gates' existing TPU belt line-up and provide reliable, precision operation across a wide range of industrial applications, including intralogistics, material handling, vertical lift, door opening and industrial automation.
