Gates Corporation, a leader in innovative power transmission product development and application engineer support, presents the Gates® PT Toolkit™ mobile application for Android® devices.
The Gates® PT Toolkit™ app - currently available in English and intended primarily for use in the United States - bundles together some of the most commonly-referenced power transmission calculations for quick and easy access:
1) Energy Savings Calculator
As first seen on gates.com/ptsavings, enter some basic facts about a motor’s energy consumption, maintenance, component, and downtime to get instant estimated annual savings when converting to a Gates synchronous belt drive.
2) Center Distance Calculator
With some fundamental product information entered, this feature calculates approximate belt length and center distance for both synchronous and V-belt drives.
Note: For exact center distance calculations, please contact the Product Application Engineering team at PTPAsupport@gates.com or by calling the hotline at 303-744-5800 opt.2.
3) Belt Tension Calculator
Quickly calculate ideal belt tension or belt length for Gates V-belt drives or Poly Chain® GT® Carbon™ belt drives.
4) Conversions Tool
Not only does this tool quickly convert fractions into decimals or millimeter equivalents, but its results can be copied and pasted into the app’s other calculators if needed. Additional measurement conversion formulas offered include “Inches to Millimeters”, “Watt to Horsepower” and many more.
Thanks to the app’s on-line and off-line functionality, all four calculators are accessible 24/7 in the office, during remote field visits, and anywhere in-between. When used offline, calculator results can be emailed directly to customers, colleagues, or yourself when phone or wireless service is restored. Anywhere it’s used, the Gates® PT Toolkit™ mobile app will help continue powering progress.
