Gates Liftpower™ Open Ended Timing Belts


Long Length & Lift Power – Gates provide a full range of open ended timing belts. Long Length open ended timing belts are very well suited to linear movements, for example: Automated doors, lifts and warehouse conveyors, reversal drives such as office equipment, computers & printers, applications requiring accurate positioning such as machine tooling, x/y co-ordinate machinery, and so on.

Belt identification: A three part number on the reverse of the timing belt indicates its designation, belt width and pitch code.

LiftPower™ open ended flat timing belts have been designed to work optimally on lifting / handling applications which require weights and / or platforms to move.  LiftPower™ belts use flat pulleys on which to run.  They are the perfect option for:

  • Hydraulic cylinders in scissor style lifting tables
  • Chains & steel cables in high rise storage requiring vertical transport of motor vehicles
Long Length

  • The timing belt is specially designed with a very high ability to position accurately – this is ideal for applications with repetitive movements.
  • Using tensile members with high modulus give very good length stability.
  • Simple attachment to clamping fixtures.
  • No maintenance, retensioning or lubrication required.


  • In comparison with chains or steel cables, smoother running plus higher speeds are possible.
  • Easy installation using clamping plates.
  • Low noise level.
  • No maintenance, re-tensioning or lubrication required.


  • Long Length
  • PowerGrip®: GT pitches of 3MR, 5MR, 8MR
  • PowerGrip®: HTD® pitches of 3M, 5M, 8M, 14M
  • PowerGrip®: pitches of XL, L and H
  • Fibreglass or steel tensile cords.
  • Rubber teeth / backing.
  • Special nylon facing.

Poly Chain®: pitches of 8MGT, 14MGT

  • Aramid tensile cord.
  • Polyurethane teeth and backing.
  • Fabric reinforced teeth.


  • In comparison to steel cables, a extremely low elongation and much imporved flexibility are possible due to steel / high performance steel cords.
  • Proprietary elastomeric compound.
  • A very high resistance to wear and reduced friction are made possible by fabric on the back of the timing belt.
