Travel & Tourism Industry release:
Proven and durable Dana driveshafts have been an industry standard for more than 50 years, and are ideal for the rigorous demands of most industrial and mobile off-highway applications.
In addition, Dana is supplying its motion system products to engineering company Starneth for the New York Wheel project. Thirty-two planetary gearboxes will be used to rotate the wheel. These gearboxes are typically designed to move continuous chain-tread vehicles or other heavy machinery and feature a custom cylindrical input shaft to fit the needs of this specific application.
Dana gearboxes were also supplied for the 550-foot tall High Roller observation wheel in Las Vegas, which opened in 2014.
“When Dana was approached about the New York Wheel, we knew there would be very specific requirements for this distinctive project,” said Aziz Aghili, president of Dana Off-Highway Drive and Motion Technologies. “Dana offers a competitive advantage with a truly global footprint that supplies specialized driveshaft solutions, power-transmission products, and support all over the world. Since every project is different, we work closely with customers to deliver reliable and highly engineered, custom-made solutions.”
For more than 70 years, Dana has served the industrial market with driveshaft and sealing products for a range of applications, including railways, scrap recycling, and steel production, as well as pulp and paper manufacturing. The company’s opportunities in the stationary industrial sector were recently broadened with the acquisition of the power-transmission and fluid power businesses of Brevini Group in February.
The New York Wheel is expected to draw more than 3.5 million visitors annually and will be visible from the New York harbor.
