The Gates Belt Installation + Rotation Device (BIRD™) minimises finger and hand injuries due to hands getting caught in pinch points during routine installation and maintenance. While a drive is shut down and locked out, the BIRD™ safely facilitates a rotational inspection of a drive.
Prior to the launch of the BIRD™, 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 lead to a hand or finger pulled into a pinch point.
The BIRD™ changes that. Ensure the safety of your staff and proper maintenance of your drives with the Gates BIRD™.
