Dana has introduced its Spicer Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS), which is engineered to deliver enhanced mobility and reduced fuel consumption for farming equipment.

Now being adapted for agricultural vehicles after years of development and use in military markets, the CTIS is designed to maximize the mobility of agricultural tractors, combines and harvesters by adjusting tire pressure to provide the optimum footprint on any given terrain, according to Aziz Aghili, president of Dana Off-Highway Driveline Technologies.

The development enhances productivity in field operating environments through optimized traction, leak detection and reduced soil compaction while extending tire life, improving fuel economy and increasing vehicle stability during on-road transport, he says. It is available now for testing by OEMs with production scheduled to start next year.

“Dana has become a clear leader among Tier 1 suppliers for the agricultural sector by providing high-quality drivetrain solutions that enable our OEM partners to accelerate their production schedules and reduce their time to market,” says Aghili.

“As the sector continues its rebound, Dana is well- positioned to deliver the advanced drivetrain technologies farmers need to increase their yield and meet growing demand,” he adds.
