Drive-shafts built for rigours of scrap recycling

Scrap recyclers are building increasingly larger scrap metal shredding equipment to help feed the worldwide hunger for steel, especially in China, India, and other emerging markets. These shredders require durable industrial driveshafts that can handle the workload while requiring minimal maintenance. Dana supplies driveshafts for shredding equipment with motors ranging from 1,000 to 9,000 horsepower, highlighted by the Spicer Gelenkwellenbau (GWB) 393.90 Series cardan driveshaft. Engineered to work with 6,000 to 7,000 horsepower shredder motors, this drive-shaft features a split-bearing eye design that increases bearing life, load distribution, and torque capacity, while reducing the service time required to exchange bearings.
