Rydell Industrial (Belting) Co , in conjunction with Gates, is pleased to be able to offer to all customers Gates maintenance training as well as an introduction to Gates maintenance kits, both of which can extend the life of belt drives.

Save time and money, while creating a safer environment for employees with the help of Rydell and Gates. Rydell is committed to supplying the highest quality belt drive systems in the industry. Along with this commitment comes a dedication to the industry to deliver a state of the art preventative training course.

This course is suitable for all industries and accommodates all varying levels of knowledge for any individuals involved in fitting, purchasing, designing and selecting belt drives. This course guides all attendees to a proficient level, to be competent to install, tension and laser align all V, joined and synchronous belts. This is an interactive course, with a hands-on demonstration rig.

Aligning and tensioning drives correctly on site will provide customers thousands of dollars saving through reduced downtime and increased energy savings.

Gates maintenance kits
Gates Maintenance Kits were designed to help complete all drive installation and maintenance with ease. There are multiple kits to choose from so users get the best tools to suit requirements and budget. The hard cover carry case provides excellent protection for tools and keeps them all together, and can be locked with a padlock for security.

Gates 507C sonic tension meter
The sonic tension meter can easily be operated by one person for fast, accurate readings on all types of synchronous belt drive systems and V-belt drives. The standard cord sensor can be used to reach inside cramped compartments where conventional measurements would be impossible.

Gates EZ Align laser alignment tool
With the new Gates EZ Align precision laser alignment device users can align all industrial belt drives quickly and easily with just one tool. Gates EZ Align tools use powerful laser line technology for maximum angular accuracy on belt drives up to six feet in length.

Gates AT-1 laser alignment tool
Noise, wear on pulleys, belts and bearings, vibrations and ultimately machine downtime may all be caused by improper pulley alignment. This can be prevented by using Gates laser alignment device, the LASER AT-1. Mounted in a few seconds, the laser line projected on the targets enables users to quickly ascertain and correct any misalignment. The LASER AT-1 identifies parallel as well as angular misalignment between the pulleys, and is suitable for pulley diameters of 60mm and larger.

Gates Design Flex Pro software
Design Flex Pro is the newest upgrade to the previous versions of the company's Design Flex software. It allows users to design a drive in minutes and get numerous drive solutions that fit design parameters. Design specifications can also be printed, emailed or converted to a PDF.

Design Flex Pro is suitable for users that want to:
  • quickly and correctly design 2-point drives
  • get multiple design solutions
  • see both V-belt and synchronous options
  • save time and money
  • obtain correct tensioning data for new and existing belt drives; and
  • check power capacity of new and existing belt drives.
