    GC20™ Crimper with Cortex™ Intelligence

    Gates® GC20™ with Gates® Cortex™ Intelligence is the latest innovation in smart crimper technology. A new addition to the Gates crimper line-up — GC20™ Cortex™ makes connected technology available to every user in the market by including this innovation on Gates baseline crimper. With access to live updates on eCrimp™ content and new product crimp specifications, GC20™ Cortex™ takes the guesswork out of hydraulic assembly fabrication. The intuitive touchscreen controls reduce assembly time regardless of hose assembly experience and offers on-board training for new operators. At Gates, we design hydraulic hose crimper solutions to be smart and versatile for ultimate operational efficiency in the factory and the field — because every minute counts when you’re on the clock.

    • Connected — Access to continuously updated eCrimp™ content with new product crimp specs.
    • Efficiency — Intuitive touch-screen controls reduce assembly time, regardless of hose assembly experience; GC20 Cortex saves favorites and optimizes crimp cycle time for faster crimping.
    • Safety — On-board videos simplify the training of new operators; Improved ergonomics with task light and die cone handle make the operators job easier; Calibration and Maintenance tracking and reminders promote quality control and uptime.
