Delivering Value Across All Terrains
Dana is known worldwide for its reputation as a trustworthy partner and leader in efficiently transferring energy and power to the wheels, no matter the energy source. Whatever the terrain, we have the solution — offering broad coverage across market segments including construction, agriculture, mining, material handling, and forestry.
Encompassing the needs of industries such as the steelmaking industry, sugar or cement manufacturers, as well as the marine and plastics and rubber industries, has enabled us to develop an array of solutions and provide valued support based on our understanding of many specific processes in each industry.
Customers benefit from sustainable competitive advantage through cost efficiencies, shared research and development, and knowledge transfer. Always striving to be customer-centric and collaborative, we strategically place our operations in close proximity to our clients’ programs to support new applications as they emerge. We are continually partnering to develop a systems approach and expanding our portfolio of hybridization and electrification solutions.
Off-highway machines deliver the greatest value when they’re actively working on the job site, which is why Dana’s drive and motion systems are designed with lower maintenance requirements. Tire inflation technologies, wet disc brakes, and extended drain intervals are engineered into Dana’s solutions so equipment spends more time getting the job done in between service visits.
Maximum Power Conveyance
As vehicle designs become more complex, drive and motion technologies are required to deliver exceptional performance from a smaller footprint. Dana engineers integrate systems in compact packages that provide the efficiency and high power density needed to meet increasingly demanding off-highway requirements.
Extended Vehicle/Machine Life
To minimize the total cost of ownership, buyers expect their off-highway equipment to provide consistent, superior performance over the long term. Dana’s drive and motion systems are painstakingly engineered, extensively tested, and precisely manufactured to exacting quality standards that deliver productivity and reliability year after year.
