CORTECO oil seals have a history which stretches back more than 70 years: the CORTECO brand was first registered as a product trademark for radial shaft seals in Italy in 1932. These seals were manufactured and distributed in Italy by a partner of the Freudenberg Group. Since 1932 the Italian market has identified the CORTECO brand as beingÂ a ‘rotary shaft oil seal’. This is similar to what happened in Germany for Freudenberg’s ‘SimmerringÂ®’ brand.
CORTECO engine, transmission and chassis mounts turn noise and vibration into smooth and comfortable driving conditions. The highly sophisticated technology of Corteco products clearly shows in the example of the innovative, decoupled pulley. In addition to the traditional damping of the axial vibrations, the pulley decouples the belt drive from the crankshaft. This reduces the strain on neighbouring components. The lifetime of belt and pulley is extended, while reduced noise levels inside the car mean enhanced ride comfort.
Over 400 new drive system products for vehicles from passenger cars to trucks are included in the new 2010 Drive Systems Application Catalogue from Gates. Key extensions to the existing DriveAlignÂ® product range include 19 more torsional vibration dampers and seven additional vibration dampers. A highlight is the introduction of overrunning alternator pulleys, whichÂ absorb vibrations and fluctuations in the accessory belt drive system. All 76 are illustrated. Gates’ commitment to the installation of belt kits is underlined with a major extension of the PowerGripÂ®Â kit range (93 new references) and 16 further Micro-VÂ®Â XF kits.
