Gates Design Power is the home for all Gates power transmission digital design tools, including substantially upgraded versions of our well-known Design IQ™ and Design Flex Pro™ applications. The new mobile version of Gates Design Power provides our customers with digital tools to support belt drive system engineering in the palm of their hands. Both Gates Design Power applications are available globally as free downloads in 15 different languages.
"With the launch of Design Power Mobile, we're demonstrating our ongoing commitment to accelerate the conversion of legacy drive technologies to clean, quiet, low-maintenance Gates belt drives. These powerful new tools enable machine design engineers and factory operations teams to design drives in the field or on the shop floor, making it easier for them to realize all of the performance improvements our solutions bring."
Tom Pitstick, Gates Chief Strategy Officer
The Design Power Mobile App offers access to Gates engineering tools anytime, anywhere. Solutions and reports are consistent with the Gates Design Power desktop version, and product data is updated and accurate, always.
Our Mobile App not only provides streamlined drive management, but it also connects users with their teammates and distributors while offering convenient access to reliably stored data with the cutting-edge Facility Management module.
In addition to the user-friendly functionality of each of the specialized design modules, Design Power features a state-of-the-art knowledge base with design guidance and the most sophisticated belt-performance models. Automatic synching with the Gates catalog streamlines and empowers the design process with direct access to the latest products, specifications, ratings, and pricing. Design Power also adds new organizational features on par with the best digital collaboration tools, holding multiple designs in a single project file, tracking design derivatives and iterations, and noting who made what changes along the way.
Gates Design Power software is available globally as a free download in 15 different languages.
Create custom synchronous or V-belt drive systems with ease and precision that meet your unique industrial requirements with our advanced design software. Save time and money with automatic translations and easily print, email, or save your design specifications in PDF format.
In addition to designing belt drives, use Design Flex Pro to:
Design multi-point and complex serpentine belt drives for your specific application. Our downloadable engineering software lets you design for stock and nonstock lengths and pulley sizes, with customized sprockets and conditions. Simply identify a specific Gates product, enter your drive specifications, and Gates Design IQ will calculate belt tension, shaft load, and belt length for you.
In addition to designing belt drives, use Design IQ to:
The design library feature allows you to easily create derivatives of a drive design, lock individual designs (like the original) so it can’t be changed, track what changes have been made and by what users, and set a particular design as the master version. This makes it significantly easier to capture the evolution of a design as inputs or requirements change or work is being done collaboratively amongst colleagues.
