The new SACHS generation of torque converters for automatic transmissions in passenger cars features numerous new developments that ensure superior driving comfort, high dynamics and a significant reduction in fuel consumption.
Here’s an example: The torsional damping system minimizes torsional vibrations to such an extent that early shift points are possible, with a consequent reduction in fuel consumption.
The controlled lock-up clutch transitions the torque; it can be adapted to fit individual driveline designs.
The converter as a hydrodynamic launch element with pump, turbine and stator. The precision-rounded torus reduces installation space while displaying excellent efficiency.
The integrated torsional dampers provide excellent driving comfort, reduce fuel consumption and no less importantly, protect the transmission.
