Dana offers hands-on technology demonstrations at HDAW

Stations for identifying parts and ordering components were on display in the Dana booth.

Dana Inc. hosted three stations at this year’s Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) to give attendees a hands-on training experience with their products and technology. Guests who visited all the stations and answered related questions correctly walked away with a Dana prize package.

While the prize remains a closely guarded secret, here’s what was at the training stations.
The first feature was a Spicer ReadyShaft exhibit. Attendees used the Dana EZ-ID digital tool to identify the part number of the interaxle shaft on display–demonstrating the application’s use to identify part numbers for driveline assemblies that lack product tags or identification markers.

Dana’s second station was for the Spicer ReadyCarrier program. Visitors found the carrier tag and noted the part number. This highlighted the program’s streamlined ordering process, which is also paired with next-day shipment from receipt of order.

The final training station featured a Spicer king pin and bushing display. At this station, users walked through the steps of removing a king pin and identifying the number etched onto its side. Presenters also demonstrated the claimed longevity and repairability of Spicer king pin kits.
