VSP News: Kolman's Korner, Episode 106: Dual Range Disconnect Technology Concept

May 18, 2016
Steve Wesolowski, senior director, global advanced engineering, Dana, speaks about the company’s Dual Range Disconnect Technology Concept.

The 6x2 axle configuration for Class 8 tractors offers some advantages over the commonly used 6x4 setup, but there are some drawbacks. To address these shortcomings, Dana has come out with its Dual Range Disconnect Technology Concept for linehaul applications.

I asked Steve Wesolowski, the company’s senior director of global advanced engineering, how this technology – which improves efficiency without sacrificing performance – works.

Dana is a global leader in the supply of highly engineered driveline, sealing and thermal-management technologies that improve the efficiency and performance of vehicles with both conventional and alternative-energy powertrains.

What happens when a situation arises where there is the need for a 6x4 configuration?

What value does the Dual Range Disconnect Technology offer?

I asked Wesolowski what is the next step for the technology concept.
