Gates New Self-Assembly Machinery Programme

Exemplary in every respect:
Gates Self-Assembly System

You can save time and money on your hose assemblies, with Gates self-assembly machinery.

The newest Gates range of grease-free self-assembly machines and dies are custom-designed to work with Gates Global hoses and couplings. They cover the whole spectrum of customer needs, from workshops to mobile service operations and even on-site field crimping.

Gates MegaCrimp® couplings are no-skive, which means that your assemblies are not exposed to the risk of contamination that comes with their skived counterparts.

No-skive assemblies also resist moisture better than skived, and since MegaCrimp®'s advanced tooth profile bites-the-wire without relying on compression of the hose's outer rubber, you get the most secure, leak-free, assembly that money can buy.

In addition to this, the revolutionary patented C-insert not only ensures that an optimum cylindrical crimping force is applied, it increases assembly lifetime which gives you better flow and improved pressure and temperature resistance.

The result:

Factory-quality performance above and beyond all international standards in full compliance with EU directives.
