Gates launched a mobile version of its Gates Design Power digital design tool. 

"With the launch of Design Power Mobile, we're demonstrating our ongoing commitment to accelerate our Chain to Belt initiative, driving the conversion of legacy drive technologies to clean, quiet, low-maintenance Gates belt drives," says Tom Pitstick, chief strategy officer for Gates. "These powerful and innovative new tools leverage the power of mobile phones to enable machine design engineers and factory operations teams to design drives anywhere, making it easier for them to realize all of the performance improvements our solutions bring." 

The expanded mobile app includes five extended support modules and an upgraded Design Flex Pro, as well as Facility Management, which allows customers to monitor and update all their power transmission drives projects in one place. Users can also get routine maintenance notifications about each drive and see which drives need attention and get relevant information about each one. 

Design Power Mobile also adds a sonic tension meter, flashlight RPM meter, sound meter and distance measurement tool using the device's existing camera, flash and microphone. 

The app is available on the Apple and Android stores.
