Dana Upgrades Power Density, Torque Range of Brevini™ Helical and Bevel Helical Gearboxes for Industrial Mining Applications

Sep 13, 2021

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN) today announced upgrades to the company's line of Brevini helical and bevel helical gearboxes used in mining and bulk material handling applications. The new gearboxes will be available starting in early 2022.

The enhancements include three new monoblock models to more precisely address torque demands, as well as series-wide design enhancements that improve power density.

"Mining and bulk material-handling customers rely on heavy-duty gearboxes to keep the flow of ore and aggregate moving and support sustained profitability," said Jeroen Decleer, senior vice president, Off-Highway Drive and Motion Systems for Dana Incorporated. "Long known for their unmatched reliability and durability, Brevini helical and bevel helical gearboxes have been refined to offer performance improvements that enhance productivity and further benefit the bottom line."

Upgraded Helical and Bevel Helical Gearboxes
Offering nominal output torques up to 1,000 kNm, Brevini helical and bevel helical gearboxes provide the modularity and flexibility needed to optimize the performance of conveyors, stacker reclaimers, wagon tipplers, and ship loading and unloading equipment used in mining and bulk material handling. 

They have been redesigned with best-in-class torque density to deliver more power from a smaller package, which improves efficiency, reduces weight, and minimizes lubrication requirements.

Brevini helical and bevel helical gearboxes are engineered with low-temperature housings and special seals that support operations in extreme environments. They can be customized with a wide range of gear configurations, ratios, and input and output shafts.
