Premium hydraulic hoses
Third Quarter 2019, Hydraulic systems & components
Gates, a leading global provider of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions, has introduced the next generation of premium hydraulics with the new Gates MXT family of hoses. This innovative, patent-pending product line is a lighter weight and more flexible solution, that meets or exceeds a wide range of industry standards and addresses both replacement market and original equipment manufacturer needs. It is designed for applications across industries such as agriculture, mining, construction and other end-markets with demanding performance requirements.
“This innovative new product further demonstrates our ongoing dedication to push the boundaries of applied materials science and manufacturing processes to deliver solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers,” said Ivo Jurek, CEO of Gates Industrial.
Tom Pitstick, CMO and SVP of Product Line Management, added: “Our customers want lighter, more flexible, easier-to-handle products that address multiple industry standards. They need to enhance the performance of their machines, simplify their engineering processes, improve operational efficiencies and streamline inventory with a simplified selection of products that can be used on virtually any original equipment platform. MXT delivers on these needs.”
Gates anticipates strong demand because MXT hoses deliver:
• More flexibility (up to 35% decreased force-to-bend), allowing for faster and more ergonomic installation.
• Lighter weight (up to 30% less) for improved fuel efficiency, easier handling and reduced shipping costs.
• A coverage of approximately 90% of the hydraulic wire braid product applications,meeting or exceeding multiple industry standards.
