Dana Inc. introduced drive systems for electric-driven MEWPs made in China

At Bauma China , Dana - which offers advanced drive and motion products for a wide range of MEWP designs - is launching an integrated system for electric-driven boom and scissor lifts with working heights above 6 metres. It’s designed to improve safety, productivity, efficiency, operator comfort, and reliability while reducing total cost of ownership as well as the impact on the environment.

The complete package from Dana features Spicer Torque-Hub wheel drives, low-voltage internal permanent magnet motors, inverters, slew drives, pump-motor, system pumps, proportional valves, and electronic control units. 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 suited for both diesel- and electric-powered equipment.

“Dana’s electrification portfolio for versatile, high-performance work platforms is driving efficiencies across the Chinese construction market,” said Aziz Aghili, executive vice president and president of Dana Off-Highway Drive and Motion Systems. “Our strong and growing presence in China ideally positions Dana to support equipment manufacturers in the region with advanced, integrated drive and motion electrification technologies.”

In August, Dana inaugurated a new 16,000-square-meter manufacturing and assembly plant in Yancheng, China, to expand the production of highly specialised 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.
