Advanced, Worksite-Proven Technologies for MEWPs
Used by leading global manufacturers of MEWPs for more than two decades, the Spicer Torque-Hub brand of wheel and track drives features a compact planetary design that is ideal for both diesel- and electric-powered equipment.
Dana’s e-Hub drives for MEWPs feature a fully integrated electro-mechanical configuration in a compact package that includes enhanced gear geometries for quieter operation. Meanwhile, its power-dense motor design delivers high efficiency and best-in-class torque performance.
Dana also designs and manufactures a broad range of Brevini™ motion products to help original-equipment manufacturers (OEM) comply with platform design, load sensing, dynamic terrain sensing, safety requirements, and other global safety standards for MEWPs.
Additionally, Dana leverages vehicle data to improve performance and reduce total cost of ownership through its Spicer Smart Suite™ Intelligent Load Monitoring System (ILMS). Spicer Smart Suite ILMS uses patented and proprietary data-harvesting technologies across the vehicle to prevent tip-over incidents, supply intelligent calibration management, and estimate axle attitude. It is designed to alert the operator of potential tipping situations, reduce the risk of vehicle breakdowns, improve productivity, and enhance the long-term serviceability of drive systems.
Dana has been working with MEWP players in China, such as Aichi, Dingli, Genie, Haulotte, JLG, LGMG, Sinoboom, Sunward, XCMG, and Zoomlion, among others.
Dana’s Large Footprint in China
Since establishing operations in China in 1991, Dana has steadily bolstered its capabilities to support vehicle manufacturers in the region through numerous investments in engineering and manufacturing resources.
In August, Dana inaugurated a new 16,000 square-meter manufacturing and assembly plant in Yancheng, China, to expand the production of highly specialized hub drives, planetary drives, helical and bevel helical gearboxes, and hydrostatic solutions. When fully operational, it will produce approximately 160,000 units per year for OEMs in the construction, agriculture, and industrial markets.
With 24 facilities and approximately 5,700 employees in China at its wholly owned and joint-venture operations, Dana serves numerous off-highway manufacturers in China, including AGCO, CRCC, CRCHI, CREG, Dingli, Epiroc, JLG, John Deere, SANY, Terex, XCMG, and Zoomlion.
