Gates launches serpentine belt line

May 5, 2015

Gates Corp. has introduced its Century Series Micro-V belt line, an OE fit belt line. The company says the new belt uses the most advanced serpentine belt technology and materials available.  

Gates says each belt in the Century Series line is the result of extensive analysis, engineering, and manufacturing to match OE size, materials and construction. 

The line represents ongoing monitoring of and adaptation to OE belts to be the leader in accurate belt specifications.  This is increasingly important as OEMs continuously modify serpentine system designs to reduce warranty and increase efficiency, according to Gates. 

The Century Series line takes this iterative improvement process one step further by upgrading material and construction on certain OE belts that can lead to noise, vibration and premature failure to be the quietest and highest performing belts available.

“We are excited to introduce our Century Series Micro-V line,” says Jack Ramsey, senior vice president, North American automotive aftermarket for Gates.  

“The line highlights our heritage of over 100 years of excellence and demonstrates our continued focus on product development to take us into the next century.”
