Currently in the final validation phase of pre-production testing, this new series of winch drives will be available in the first quarter of 2019 and is on display as part of Dana's full-system solution for deck cranes at SMM,
This series is designed to operate as the winch drive for an auxiliary hoist system on ship loaders, deck cranes, cable and pipe-laying tensioners, rubber-tyred gantry cranes, and other maritime equipment. Engineered for personnel lifting applications in the marine industry, these winch drives have been designed to meet third-party marine certifications, including API 2C and ATEX standards.
"The marine industry includes both onshore port applications and offshore marine settings. With such an extensive assortment of machines and environments, original-equipment manufacturers often require custom specifications," said
These new, lightweight winch drives have been engineered with a comprehensive range of features, including:
- a sealing system designed to withstand harsh marine environments;
- improved power density;
- housing made from either cast iron or steel;
- high-radial load bearings to deliver reliable lifting performance for heavy loads;
- an integrated hydraulic failsafe negative brake or an electromagnetic brake;
- additional safety features including a back stop, torque limiter and sensors; and
- inline and right-angle configurations.
In addition to winch drives, Dana offers Brevini-brand axial piston motors, axial piston pumps, planetary gearboxes, slewing drives, proportional directional valves, winches, industrial planetary gearboxes, wheel drives, and other motion products for the marine and offshore industry.
