Dana center bearing improves driveshaft lineup

Dana Corp.’s Commercial Vehicle System group has introduced the Dana Spicer XC center bearing

Dana Corp.’s Commercial Vehicle System group has introduced the Dana Spicer XC center bearing. According to the company, the design simplifies installation and alignment of multiple driveshaft assemblies for vehicle manufacturers, and boosts reliability and durability.

“Proper alignment is critical to the successful installation of a multiple driveshaft configuration,” said Jim Holman, engineering manager for Dana’s commercial and off-highway applications group. “Our new center bearing accomplishes this better than prior models because the design allows the specially engineered elastomer isolator to pivot in a new integrated hanger bracket and self-align as it is being installed. This ensures the system is properly aligned when the vehicle leaves the factory and ultimately provides a more efficient and longer life drivetrain enhancement.”
