Dana’s hollow shaft technologies feature a lightweight tubular design, an optimized cross-section that maximizes strength-to-weight ratio, and superior tuning that delivers both dynamic performance and strength. With decades of metal forming expertise, our tubular products offer a thicker wall for highly stressed areas such as splined and friction-welded areas, reduced wall thickness for low-stressed areas, and various internal and external shapes and splines. Our hollow shaft innovations help OEMs improve fuel economy while enhancing driving performance.
The Nextrusion™ cold extrusion process delivers a variable wall tubing with superior strength where it is needed, along with considerable weight savings (up to 35%) when compared to traditional manufacturing options.
Engineered through the Nextrusion™ cold extrusion process, Dana technologies help customers solve specific challenges by offering tubular products with various external and internal shapes.
