From raw material handling to semi-finished castings, steel wire, tubes, plates and coils, Dana has a broad experience in a variety of applications related to steel production and provides components for equipment used in the transformation of steel and many other metallurgical processes.

Dana is involved in both Primary and Secondary steelmaking. In the first case our solutions are applied to the equipment needed to convert liquid iron from a blast furnace and steel scrap into steel using the technique known as basic oxygen steelmaking. This can also be achieved in an electric arc furnace by melting scrap steel or what is called direct reduced iron. In Secondary steelmaking, our solutions are related to the refinement of crude steel, which is done prior to casting into semi-finished products.

Dana represents a close partner for cement manufacturers and covers a wide range of applications in the industry, from the limestone quarrying stage right up to the packed cement powder ready for distribution.

Limestone and clay are extracted locally and usually reach the cement works via a conveyor belt. Crushed into raw meal and transformed into clinker inside a sintering furnace, the material is then ground down and mixed with gypsum to obtain cement powder. In collaboration with the key OEMs in the industry and the end users, Dana acts as a primary partner supporting the market with a special focus on minimizing environmental impact.
