Dana Inc. has introduced new drive technologies for material-handling vehicles, including a low-voltage, high-efficiency motor for electric-powered applications, as well as a new series of modular, high-efficiency drive axles for Class I, IV, and V industrial lift trucks.
Dana has launched a 48- to 120/144-volt synchronous reluctance internal permanent magnet (SRIPM) motor targeted for Class I electric lift trucks, sideloaders, and mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPs). The motor offers continuous power from 20 kW to 60 kW, and peak power from 30 kW to 70 kW.
Designed for Class I, IV, and V industrial lift trucks, the Spicer 141 axle (shown) is a scalable, modular platform built for heavy loads while offering durability, reliability, and ease of maintenance. Available now for cushion- and pneumatic-tire forklift trucks, the Spicer 141 axle offers a range of ratios to optimize tractive performance. Available with wet brake and drum brake configurations, the new series of axles includes a variety of mast and frame mounting options. Its new lifetime wet brake offering comes standard with an internal spring-applied hydraulic-release (SAHR) parking brake to support industry safety initiatives.
