Gates Corporation’s PIC Gauge Belt Wear App Now Available for Android™ Smartphones

Gates Parts Image Capture (PIC) Gauge Belt Wear App is now available on both iPhone® and Android™ smartphones.

Denver, CO, October 31, 2012 --( Gates Corporation, a leading manufacturer of industrial and automotive products, today announced an Android™ version of its Parts Image Capture (PIC) Gauge Belt Wear App. The first smartphone app to deliver accurate measurement and evaluation of serpentine belt wear was initially released for iPhone® in June 2012.

PIC Gauge was designed to enable anyone, from professional technicians to do-it-yourselfers to quickly and accurately diagnose wear of automotive and heavy-duty K-section serpentine belts.

“With PIC Gauge now being available for both iPhone and Android phones, the innovative app will increase the number of users conducting belt inspections to determine optimal engine accessory belt drive system performance,” said David Miller, Gates Vice President of Marketing.

PIC Gauge is simple to use. To detect belt material loss or wear, a user:

· Takes a photo of industry-standard automotive or heavy-duty K-section serpentine belt with an iPhone or Android smartphone
· Lets the app quickly analyze the photo with patent-pending software
· Reads the results: Within Specifications (green), Wear Detected (yellow), or Replace Belt (red).

Visit Gates AAPEX Booth #4210 for a demonstration and to download the app. Gates PIC Gauge Belt Wear App may also be downloaded for free from, Google Play, or the Apple App Store.
