Auto Clutch Working Principle

- Sep 18, 2018 -

Clutch Description:

The automobile clutch is located in the flywheel housing between the engine and the transmission, and the clutch assembly is fixed to the rear plane of the flywheel by screws, and the output shaft of the clutch is the input shaft of the transmission. During the driving of the vehicle, the driver can step on or release the clutch pedal as needed to temporarily separate and gradually engage the engine and the transmission to cut off or transmit the power input by the engine to the transmission.

Working Principle:

The friction between the active part and the driven part of the clutch by the contact surface, either by using liquid as the transmission medium (hydraulic coupling) or by magnetic transmission (electromagnetic clutch) to transmit torque between the two Temporarily separated, and gradually joined, allowing the two parts to rotate with each other during the transmission process.

Currently widely used in automobiles is a spring-loaded friction clutch (referred to as a friction clutch).

The torque generated by the engine is transmitted to the driven plate by the friction between the flywheel and the pressure plate and the contact surface of the driven plate. When the driver steps on the clutch pedal, the transmission of the mechanism causes the large end of the diaphragm spring to drive the pressure plate to move backward, and the driven portion is separated from the active portion.

If you have a requirement for clutch parts and friction materials, no matter for passenger cars, tractors, buses, heavy duty trucks, please contact us.
