The clutch disc is the friction partner between the flywheel and the pressure plate of the clutch cover. It serves to transfer the torque to the gearbox input shaft and so enables a smooth start and quick gear change.
Clutch discs are fitted on both sides with a friction facing, which is either riveted on or, in the case of smaller clutches, glued on. A feature of every
DT Spare Parts clutch disc is the optimized facing resilience system which, depending on the application, enables a troublefree buildup of torque when starting, as well as an ergonomically synchronized pedal force curve.
Through the use of a crown with elastic segments, which is positioned between the carrier plate and the facings, the starting characteristics are additionally improved.
The segments provide axial deflection of the facings, thereby achieving a soft “engagement” of the gears and an even wear out of the facings.
|The friction facings used are made of garn, copper or brass wire, which is embedded in a mixture of resin, rubber and filler. They are characterized by low weight and high load capacity. The facings can withstand temperatures of up to 400°C short term.|
The friction facings used by the brand
DT Spare Parts are environmentally friendly and contain no heavy metals. They guarantee an optimum balance between performance and service life.
Construction of clutch discs
The central and spring retaining plates made of stainless steel are case-hardened and so ensure maximum useful life. To avoid axial run out, each clutch disc is additionally aligned.
In addition to clutch discs, DT Spare Parts also offers all standard clutch covers, release bearings and release forks.
