Dana increases electrified product offerings Dana Inc has announced the introduction of two new electric drivetrain solutions for off-highway vehicles — the Spicer Electrified e-Axle and e-Gearbox.

These enable electrified propulsion within established vehicle architectures by “leveraging the company’s industry-leading portfolio of motors, inverters and controls”.

Dana (www.dana.com) will debut these developments in April at the Bauma construction machinery show in Munich, alongside e-Propulsion technologies from the SME Group, which the company acquired earlier this month.

Aziz Aghili, president of Dana Off-Highway Drive and Motion Technologies, said: “Vehicle manufacturers in mining, construction and other off-highway markets are transitioning toward electrification, while retaining a large portion of their products in traditional technologies.

"Dana has positioned the company to support our customers across drivetrain configurations, including electrodynamic components that accelerate the adoption of electrification through the introduction of technologies specifically selected to meet the needs of current vehicle architectures.”

The Spicer Electrified e-Axle combines Dana’s field-proven heavy-axle design with a high-efficiency TM4 SUMO HP motor/generator and inverter combination for medium-size mining trucks, medium-size load haul dumpers, and large lift trucks.

Meanwhile, the Spicer Electrified e-Gearbox features a compact design that manages high input speeds and accommodates the installation of an electric motor.

It offers an interface for connecting cost-effective motors used in electrification with conventional Spicer hydrostatic transmissions. The e-Gearbox will be available for customer testing in the second half of 2019.

The electrified propulsion technologies shown by Dana at Bauma will reflect the strategic moves made by the company to support electrification and hybridisation in the off-highway market over the past two years, including: the acquisition of the power-transmission and fluid power businesses of Brevini; the acquisition of a majority stake in TM4, a manufacturer of high-voltage electric motors, power inverters and control systems; an agreement to purchase the Drive Systems segment of the Oerlikon Group; and the acquisition of the SME Group, which designs and manufactures low-voltage motors and inverters.
