Design Multi-Point and Complex Serpentine Belt Drives

Our Design IQ™ software gives you a blank slate for designing multi-point and complex serpentine belt drives. Simply identify a specific Gates product, enter your drive specifications, and it will calculate belt tension, shaft load, and belt length for you.

You Can Use Design IQ To:

  • Calculate belt tension, belt length, shaft load, and more
  • Recommend installation tension
  • Offer drive geometry output
  • Point out principal contributing factors to flex-fatigue
  • Calculate belt widths or number of strands
