Dana Introduces New Products for Trucks at the Mid-America Trucking Show
Mar 30 15
Dana has introduced new products for trucks at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) held in Kentucky, United States, including the new Spicer® AdvanTEK® Dual Range Disconnect(TM) for tandem axles in Class 8 linehaul applications. The new technology combines traction and dependability of a 6x4 configuration with the reduced drivetrain losses and improved fuel economy of a 6x2 configuration. At startup, on grades, at low speeds, during reversing, or where additional traction is needed, the technology allows the tandem axle to operate as a 6x4 with a traditional starting ratio that delivers the optimal tractive effort needed. Fuel-economy improvements are through reduction of drivetrain losses in the inter-axle power divider, inter-axle shaft, and rear drive axle gearing. Net engine efficiency is enhanced by better complementing engine torque curves and lower overall powertrain system weight. It enables the use of fewer transmission gears and avoids the need for larger engine mounts and frame rails while improving launchability, gradeability, driveability, and low-speed manoeuvrability. Other introductions include single-reduction drive axles for North American commercial vehicles, available in 2016 for 6x2 and 6x4 axle configurations; a Spicer AdvanTEK 40 Tandem Axle with the fast axle ratio and lower weight; Spicer Life Series Main Driveshaft and Inter-Axle Shaft, which withstands increased stress on drivelines of high-efficiency on-highway trucks; a 6x2 tandem axle that weighs up to 400 pounds less than a traditional 40,000-pound 6x4 arrangement; and axles for GVW 10,000 to 14,600 pound vehicles; and axles for GVW 10,000 to 13,200 pounds and available the first half of 2015.
