The PowerGrip GT2 Belt Drive System is an advance in product design over the Gates‘ older, standard HTD system, providing higher torque carrying capability and improved load carrying strength.
The PowerGrip GT3 Belt Drive System is the newest design and offers additional benefits over GT2. The improved construction and material compound provides superior load bearing capacity. The GT2 Belts are being phased out and replaced by the new GT3 Belt Drive System
Both the PowerGrip GT2 and GT3 System‘s deep tooth design increases the contact area which provides improved resistance to ratcheting. The modified curvilinear teeth enter and exit the pulley grooves cleanly, resulting in reduced vibration.
These belts and pulleys are available in 2 mm, 3 mm & 5 mm pitches and provide the following advantages:
Application Examples for the PowerGrip GT2 and GT3 drive systems: Machine Tools, Hand Power Tools, 3D-Printers, Medical Diagnostic Equipment, Automated Teller Machines, Robotics Equipment, and Vending Equipment.
The efficiency and integrity of a belt drive is closely attributed to the quality of pulleys involved. The pulleys therefore, should be supplied by qualified and licensed suppliers. Stock Drive Products is licensed by Gates. The GT2/GT3 pulleys manufactured by Stock Drive Products are made using licensed hobs, achieving the precise fit for the drive system. The pulleys offered here will mesh perfectly with either the GT2 or GT3 belt.
