Dana Debuts Training Module to Educate Commercial-Vehicle Fleets on Benefits of Engine Downspeeding
Dana Holding Corporation has announced a new training module designed to instruct dealers, fleet managers, and service personnel on engine downspeeding, an increasingly prevalent strategy for improving fuel efficiency.
The module is a computer-based course that instructs users on the basic principles, benefits, and challenges associated with engine downspeeding; provides a one-stop source for key drivetrain system knowledge, individual component specifications, literature, videos, images, service bulletins, and parts books; and presents strategies for maintaining and servicing the Dana solution for engine downspeeding, which includes the Spicer AdvanTEK 40 tandem axle, the SPL 350 driveshaft, and the SPL 250 inter-axle shaft.
Available in the second quarter of 2015, Dana’s engine downspeeding training module will be the latest in a comprehensive range of resources for more than 4,000 commercial-vehicle OEMs and dealerships across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. This support includes a dedicated website to address design, specifying, training, and service needs; a dedicated call center staffed 24 hours a day, year round; and a knowledgeable field sales and service organization.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
