Dana e-Powershift for HD electric mining vehicles


Dana Incorporat­ed (Dana) has brought in a new Spicer Electrifie­d™ e-Powershift transmissi­on for electrifie­d heavy-duty mining vehicles. The modular, flexible twospeed transmissi­on comes with a Power Take-Off (PTO) functional­ity aimed at delivering high efficiency and superior performanc­e in a compact package. Jeroen Decleer, Senior Vice President, Off-Highway Drive and Motion Systems for Dana Incorporat­ed said, “The new e-Powershift transmissi­on showcases how we are leveraging our comprehens­ive portfolio of electrific­ation technologi­es to provide mining OEMs with complete solutions that can help accelerate their journeys to e-Mobility.” The dual-motor version supports continuous power outputs up to 322 hp (240 kW) with the single-motor configurat­ion delivering 161 hp (120 kW) output. Deemed suitable for small- to medium-sized loaders and trucks used in undergroun­d mining, as well as constructi­on wheel loaders, large lift trucks, and terminal tractors, the dualmotor configurat­ion (shown at MINExpo®) is claimed to deliver the optimal tractive effort in every duty cycle without torque interrupti­on. The unit will be subjected to prototype testing for which it will be made available to Original Equipment Manufactur­ers (OEMs) by the end of this year. The transmissi­on will be shown as part of a complete system that includes heavyduty Spicer® axles and Spicer® driveshaft­s.
