Engine drive systems manufacturer Dayco has started production and delivery of its first set of premium viscous dampers to the world's largest heavy-duty engine manufacturers, from its India facility in Manesar. 

Dayco launched its state-of-the-art viscous damper production line in India in December 2021 with an aim to serve the leading brands in the commercial vehicle, off-highway, and light-duty segments globally. 

As businesses strive to reduce CO2 emissions, Dayco is supporting OEMs in this endeavour with its premium viscous dampers from India, and by rapidly establishing a strong manufacturing base in China, Europe, and North America.

"Dayco India's fully equipped production line with industry 4.0 and next-gen advancement is capable of providing best-in-class viscous dampers with cutting-edge laser welding technology," explained Michael Weiss, CEO, Hybrid Solutions. "Our viscous dampers reduce engine NVH, improve vehicle downtime, and support heavy-duty OEMs across the globe. The seamless production and delivery of the first shipment of viscous dampers from India is a testament to the team's hard work and efforts to progress toward sustainable growth."

"Our highly reliable and best quality viscous damper solutions are 35% more durable than industry benchmarks and will serve the world's leading heavy-duty and light-duty OEMs, with a wide range of engine applications up to 20 litres," added Weiss.

Leveraging its global manufacturing and R&D capabilities, Dayco delivers innovative and efficient viscous dampers with full system support to reduce carbon footprints and meet its customer's current and future mobility challenges.
