Spicer AdvanTEK Axle System
2019 - PACE Award Finalist
What: Dana takes a different approach to axle innovation
Innovation: Dana engineers flipped the usual process of creating an axle and then testing lubricants to find the lightest oil. Instead, Dana developed the AdvanTek axle by creating the ideal low-viscosity oil, then designing the axle to be compatible. The result is a potential 2 percent fuel economy gain from an axle that is 30 percent more efficient with reduced parasitic losses than competitor products.
