More technical content for greater numbers of professional motor mechanics was among an extensive range of enhancements, announced at Automechanika last week.

News that technical content has become available in English, Russian, German, French, Italian, Polish and Spanish and means that the Gates online digital service now delivers completely free access to technical information for professionals in the passenger car, truck and bus repair industry in seven different languages.

GatesTechZone users immediately benefit from a frequently refreshed technical news menu. Content includes newsworthy items that could influence the installation and maintenance decisions being made in garages on a daily basis. As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of belts and tensioners for OE drive systems, Gates is leading the way in the development of reliable and easily accessible technical support.

Installation guidelines, installer awareness notices, supporting articles about how to choose the appropriate tools when repairing specific drive systems ‐ and of course, the latest product news from Gates – all feature on the site. It’s Gates contribution towards the digital revolution in technical support.
