WINNER: Aluminum driveshaft sheds weight and paint

Dana Holding Corp.

What: Diamond series driveshafts

Innovation: The driveshaft, made of a high-strength aluminum tube with steel end fittings, replaces the traditional heavy two-piece steel driveshaft. Dana uses magnetic pulse welding, a lower-pollution alternative to metal inert gas welding, to make the driveshaft. The aluminum shaft is lighter, quieter and needs no paint.

First customer: Paccar commercial trucks, 2012
