Dana provides a full offering of drive and motion systems for surface mining vehicles, such as vertical drills, blast hole drills, and self-propelled crushers. Designed for severe environmental conditions, a wide portfolio of track drives, slewing drives, winches, hydraulic motors and pumps, flow control systems, and electronic devices generate high traction force to the ground, extreme reliability, and performance. Dana TM4® IPM technology breaks new ground by opening new vehicle architecture capabilities for off-highway hybrid applications where space constraints previously impeded hybridization or engine downsizing. We're also able to support surface mining screeners and crushers with full hybridization.
Dana is a best-in-class provider in the underground mining segment, serving mining drills and trucks, load haul dumpers, road headers, and wet sprayers. We provide a complete offering of mechanical and electrodynamic products combined with software and integration services.
Underground mining operations create extremely challenging environments that require the most robust, reliable components to handle such severe applications. Dana meets and exceeds these conditions with high-performing Spicer® drivetrain systems and components through improved fuel efficiency, smoother shifting, more precise vehicle handling, and optimized braking. Moreover, our products support greater productivity without sacrificing precise handling, safety, and efficiency.
New developments are designed to support the transition to electric and autonomous vehicles for underground mining, allowing for maximum efficiency throughout the entire duty cycle of the application.
