Download 2D dimensioned drawings and 3D models of Gates couplings and adapter products

Enter Design Connect™

Attention design engineers! Find the right parts fast with Gates new DesignConnect™ catalog, a webbased interactive product catalog of Gates hose, couplings and adapters. It lets you pick the right parts via a high-speed, easy-to-use search engine, then download solid models for use in your own CAD environment. Pro/ENGINEER® users can drag-and-drop these models directly into their designs.

Best-in-Class Search Capability

  • Offers intuitive searches via navigation of classification structures                                     
  • Allows increased engineering productivity - find what you need quickly and easily through part number searches, parametric queries, graphical navigation and built-in 3D visualization tools                                     
  • Enables faster time to market, quicker designs and more certainty on component selections                                     
  • Displays values in both English or Metric (SI) units

Embedded 3D-Viewer Plug-In

  • Rotate, pan, zoom and fly-though parts                                     
  • Display shaded solid model or wire frame with hidden line removal option                                      
  • Interrogate solid models before downloading to confirm part selection                                      
  • Measure critical distances and dimensions across features, points and curves

Dynamic 2D & 3D Model Generation

  • Rapid delivery of 3D models and 2D drawings                                      
  • All major CAD systems supported, including:
    -Pro/ENGINEER®
    -Pro/DESKTOP®
    -AutoCAD®
    -CATIA®
    -I-DEAS®/Master Series
