Dana designs and manufactures fully integrated drive and motion products for the vast majority of AWPs, including scissor lifts, vertical mast lifts, articulating and telescopic boom lifts, crawler lifts, and truck-mounted lifts.
"The AWP market is transforming rapidly as equipment makers respond to more stringent emissions regulations and equipment buyers move to reduce noise levels and improve safety," said
Portfolio Supports Electrification of AWPs

Dana currently offers a wheel drive paired with a motor for electric-driven AWPs ranging from 3 to 7 tonnes (3 to 8 tons), and engineers are adapting Dana technologies to deliver additional wheel-drive and axle-based solutions for AWP applications up to 24 tonnes (26 tons).
Additionally, Dana is developing drive systems that integrate advanced electric motor and wheel-drive technologies in a single, compact package to optimize the performance of electric-powered AWPs with overall weights of 8 to 12 tonnes (9 to 13 tons). These drive systems will be available for pre-production testing by OEMs starting in the second quarter of this year.
This development effort illustrates how Dana supports hybridization and electrification as a key element in the company's enterprise strategy, "Shifting into Overdrive."
"Dana's strategy allows us to leverage technologies for hybridization and electrification across all the global vehicle markets we serve, including passenger vehicle, commercial truck, and off-highway," said Jeroen Decleer, vice president of global off-highway sales, product planning, and strategy for

To help OEMs comply with these standards, Dana leverages 20 years of experience to design and manufacture a broad range of Brevini motion products, including electronic controls, sensors, controllers, and associated software. For example, Dana now offers a 32-bit Brevini electronic board that enables smooth and accurate performance for joysticks through numerous adjustable parameters, including non-linear behavior.
Furthermore, Dana is adapting the Spicer® Smart Suite™ Intelligent Load Monitoring System (ILMS) for use on AWPs. Now available for pre-production testing by vehicle manufacturers, this system uses patented and proprietary data-collecting technologies across the vehicle to prevent tip-over incidents, estimate static loads, and supply intelligent calibration management.
Spicer Smart Suite ILMS is designed to alert the operator of potential tipping situations, reduce the risk of vehicle breakdowns, improve productivity and precision, and enhance the long-term durability of drive systems. Production of the Spicer Smart Suite ILMS is anticipated to begin this year.
