Dana Unveils New Electric Motor, Drive Axle for Lift Trucks
Dana Incorporated recently introduced new drive technologies for material-handling vehicles, including a low-voltage, high-efficiency motor for electric-powered applications, as well as a new series of modular, high-efficiency drive axles for Class I, IV, and V industrial lift trucks.
The new technologies demonstrate how Dana offers modular systems that support both bolt-on and fully integrated approaches to vehicle design. Dana’s flexibility helps manufacturers reduce system complexity, shorten the time to develop and introduce new products, and facilitate the introduction of innovations into the vehicle life cycle.
Dana has a deep portfolio of Spicer® axles, transmissions, and driveshafts for traditional applications driven by internal-combustion engines, as well as a full range of electric motors, inverters, and controllers for low- and high-voltage applications ranging from 24 to 800 V.
Additionally, Dana supplies motion systems for work functions as well as advanced sensors and controls developed to optimize productivity, maximize life, and reduce maintenance.
“Performance, efficiency, and modularity are the top needs for manufacturers of material-handling equipment,” said Aziz Aghili, president of Dana Off-Highway Drive and Motion Systems. “Dana’s new generation of innovations provide the lowest total cost of ownership by helping equipment buyers navigate the challenges of Industry 4.0, human-to-machine communication, autonomous vehicle operation, Big Data, and the end-to-end digitization of supply chain processes.”
