It's getting close to the end of the year, and you know what that means. The kickoff of the 2013 FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is around the corner! Starting the week after the kickoff, Gates will allow teams to order belts and sprockets online at www.Gates.com/FIRST. All of the available components will be 5mm pitch, 15mm wide, PowerGrip HTD belts and sprockets. There will be several predetermined sizes available to teams and they are provided in a first come, first served basis. There will also be a limit on the parts so we recommend designing the belt drive first then ordering the parts you'll need.
As always, go to www.Gates.com/FIRST for belt drive assistance.
