Gates Launches 'Gates Design Power' Software Platform

Gates Launches ‘Gates Design Power’ Software Platform

The new digital toolkit consists of six modules, including four all-new applications.

Gates announced the launch of Gates Design Power, a new software platform it says offers multiple digital design tools to support the engineering and specification of belt-drive systems across a broad array of applications, making the process easier and more robust than ever before.  

“At Gates we are committed to relentless innovation and finding ways to make our customers’ lives easier. Digital innovation is as important as product innovation in making this happen,” said Tom Pitstick, chief marketing officer and senior vice president of strategic planning for Gates. “The new Gates Design Power software platform builds upon our existing design tools to support our Global ‘Chain to Belt’ initiative, making it even easier for engineers across all applications, from two-wheelers to manufacturing equipment, to design-in our products and get the most out of their belt drives.”

The new digital toolkit consists of six modules, says Gates, including four all-new applications and substantially upgraded versions of well-known Gates digital tools, Design IQ and Design Flex Pro. Among the all-new programs is the industry-first Mobility Drive Analysis tool aimed at making it easier for engineers from bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, and power sports OEMs to design Gates clean, quiet, durable and low-maintenance Carbon Drive belt systems into their next-generation vehicles, further accelerating conversion from chain and other technologies. 

Gates Design Power is now available globally as a free download and includes 15 different languages for use across most regions. Development of the Design Power platform is ongoing, and additional features and enhancements are planned to roll out over the next 12 months, including mobile device compatibility.
