DENVER, Oct. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Gates (NYSE: GTES), a leading global provider of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions, announces the latest innovation in smart crimper technology. The GC20™ with Gates® Cortex™ Intelligence takes the guesswork out of hose assembly fabrication and features intuitive touch-screen controls, on-board training, integrated eCrimp™ settings and remote support. The patent-pending GC20 Cortex is a smart and versatile solution for ultimate operational efficiency in both the factory and the field.
"The GC20 with Gates Cortex Intelligence represents the continuation of the digital revolution at Gates," said Mike Haen, vice president, global product line management. "Our digital strategy is to develop and launch IoT solutions that provide tangible benefit for the next generation of customers and align with Industry 4.0. The GC20 Cortex is connected in a way that makes our customers' jobs easier and improves their ability to consistently make high quality hydraulic assemblies in the field."
The GC20 Cortex is a purposeful upgrade to the well-known Gates Power Crimp® 707 (PC707) crimper and, while it retains all of the former crimper's capabilities, this product features new technological advances designed to further safeguard crimper operations, including upgrades that solve common pain points and exceed user expectations. Additional features of the GC20 Cortex include:
"Gates has tens of thousands of PC707 crimpers actively in use across North America," said Haen. "A retrofit kit is available to upgrade existing PC707 crimpers to GC20 Cortex crimpers with a straightforward 45-minute conversion. The GC20 Cortex uses the same pumps and dies as the PC707 crimper, so customers can benefit from this innovation with minimal disruption or extra expense."
See the GC20 Cortex live at AAPEX, November 5-7, 2019. To schedule an interview on-site, contact Ani Vattano, or visit booth #4038.
Gates will launch the GC20 with Gates Cortex Intelligence in the U.S. and Canada in Q4 2019, and is currently accepting pre-orders. For more information, visit www.gates.com/gc20.
