Gates Introduces Parabolic Pitch Belts

Gates recently introduced two new thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) belts, the Gates Parabolic Pitch (GPP) in 8-mm (0.31-inch) and 14-mm (0.55-inch) profiles.

Engineered to outperform the competition, the high-strength, reinforced steel (RSL) GPP 14-RSL has the highest break strength of any 14-mm (0.55-inch) pitch TPU belt on the market, 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 provides an operating range from -30°C to 50°C (-22°F to 122°F). GPP belts complement Gates’ existing TPU belt lineup and provide reliable, precision operation across a wide range of industrial applications, including intralogistics, material handling, vertical lift, door opening, and industrial automation.
