Gates BIRD belt installation and rotation device

Wednesday, 07 June, 2017 | Supplied by: Gates Australia Pty Ltd

The Gates BIRD belt installation and rotation device is designed to minimise the risks to employees during routine belt maintenance.

While a belt drive is shut down, locked out and tagged out, the device reduces the risk of finger and hand injuries due to hands getting caught in pinch points during belt installation and maintenance by safely facilitating a rotational inspection of a drive.

Previously, in order to inspect or install a drive, personnel would pull on the belt or grab the edges of the pulley or sprocket to turn the drive. Regardless of the care taken, this procedure is inherently dangerous: a split second can see a hand or finger pulled into a pinch point, causing a horrific injury.

This easy-to-use tool features a pair of powerful permanent magnets that are attached to the belt sprocket. Once fully engaged, the comfortable aluminium handles allow operators to safely and easily rotate the drive, facilitating maintenance and installation in the safest way possible.
