  • Woodworking machines/mass wood machining
  • Medical technology/laboratory Technology
  • Measuring and testing technology/material testing machines/machines for material testing and component testing
  • Textile machines/textile finishing machines
  • Machine tools/production systems

GT4™ timing belts are the further development of the GT3™ timing belts ordered so far, cf. the Gates manufacturer’s declaration of 21.02.2021, available here and in our download area.

The Gates® PowerGrip™ GT4™ was developed with state-of-the-art technology and material science know-how and replaces the previous GT3 timing belts in the pitches 8M & 14M.
The main difference to the previous GT3 timing belts is the use of an innovative ethylene-elastomer mixture (EPDM) which - in contrast to the previously used material component chloroprene - will also be available in sufficient quantities as a raw material in the long term.

Of course, the Powergrip GT4 timing belts are also available in the previous belt lengths and application-optimised versions.

An optimum belt selection can never be made across the board; it must be based on the individual requirements of the application in question. If a specific drive belt that is adapted perfectly to the timing belt pulley is selected, the efficiency of both the timing belt drive and the entire drive train is improved. Our application technicians will be happy to advise you in the selection of the right synchronous belt for your requirements. Just come and talk to us!
