Dana training module focuses on engine downspeeding

Dana Holding Corp. announced a new training module designed to instruct dealers, fleet managers and service personnel on engine downspeeding, an increasingly prevalent strategy for improving fuel efficiency, at the Technology & Maintenance Council’s 2015 Annual Meeting.

The module is a computer-based course that instructs users on the basic principles, benefits and challenges associated with engine downspeeding. It provides a one-stop source for key drivetrain system knowledge, individual component specifications, literature, videos, images, service bulletins and parts books. It also presents strategies for maintaining and servicing the Dana solution for engine downspeeding, which includes the Spicer AdvanTEK 40 tandem axle, the SPL 350 driveshaft and the SPL 250 inter-axle shaft.

Available in the second quarter of 2015, Dana’s engine downspeeding training module will be the latest in a comprehensive range of resources for more than 4,000 commercial-vehicle OEMs and dealerships across the United States, Canada and Mexico, said Dana. This support includes a dedicated website to address design, specifying, training and service needs; a dedicated call center staffed 24 hours a day, year-round; and a knowledgeable field sales and service organization.
