Video: Planetary drives for design flexibility in tracked, wheeled and winch applicationsEngineering360 News Desk | January 26, 2022
Dana Inc. has launched three new planetary drives with wide ratio ranges, better power density and modular designs that expand the company's Spicer Torque-Hub support for tracked and wheeled vehicles and Brevini winch applications.
The new drives offer output torque ratings from 80 kNm to 130 kNm and can be configured with Brevini hydraulic motors or Dana TM4 electric motors for a wide range of conventional and next-generation electrified machines, such as crawler cranes, piling rigs, drill rigs, track tool carriers, straddle carriers and tracked undercarriages. They can also be packaged with hydraulic or electric motors for winches used in a variety of lifting applications, including construction cranes, offshore cranes, rotary drilling machinery and shiplifts.
The full line of planetary track drives now offers output torque ratings from 10 kNm to over 130 kNm, with ratios available from 26:1 up to 210:1. Large drives in the RCT series are engineered to operate reliably in extreme conditions from -40° F to 120° F (-40° C to 50° C).
The drives for mobile applications can manage input speeds up to 5,000 rpm and provide heavy-duty bearing load capacities as well as cartridge motor mounts with integrated parking brakes.
The winch drives accommodate electric and hydraulic motor inputs and supply exceptional radial load capacities with best-in-class torque ratings under standards established by the European Federation of Materials Handling. Supporting winch applications with line pulls up to 83 tons, the drives can be customized for marine applications with a sealing system specifically engineered for harsh environments, and they meet safety certification standards for major international organizations governing marine applications.
