Driveshafts for Industrial Applications

Since 1946, Dana’s Spicer GWB cardan shafts have been known for global innovation and quality performance. SPICER GWB heavy cardan shafts were the first to be developed specifically for diesel locomotives. In the 1950s, Spicer GWB cardan shafts were the largest available at that time, and were followed several decades later by the first maintenance-free cardan shaft. Based on a long-standing commitment to continual innovation and customer satisfaction, SPICER GWB cardan shafts have been recognized as a market leader troughout
the world. SPICER GWB cardan shafts include a wide range of products for multiple applications, covering a torque range from 2.400 to 16.300.000 Nm.

Journal Cross Assemblies for Industrial Applications

Today, there are basically two types of cardan shafts that have evolved into a worldwide technology standard. Their main difference lies in the design of the bearing eye.

Closed bearing eye: This is a design used mainly in the commercial vehicles sector and for general mechanical engineering applications (series 687/688 and 587).

Split bearing eye: Developed for heavy and super-heavy duty applications, this design (series 390/392/393 and 492/498), provides compact dimensions in conjunction with a maximum torque transmission capability and greatly improved service life, apart from facilitating maintenance and assembly operations.
