A new generation of drive-axle gearing that reduces noise, vibration, and harshness has been introduced by Dana. ‘GenTech’ hypoid gearing, now available as a production option, is a proprietary system utilizing the latest computer-aided design methods, premium manufacturing processes, tightly controlled heat-treat and material specifications, and advanced in-line testing, says Dana. Using advanced gear-tooth cutting machinery and new manufacturing equipment, the result is claimed to be “superbly matched” gear tooth positions.” The automotive-quality hypoid axle gearing results in substantially quieter and smoother axle operation. GenTech gearing is available in Dana’s newest Spicer S110 and S130 single-drive axles with weight ratings of up to 16,500 lb.
Additional axle models will follow later in 2006.
