Modern engines can be driven at extremely low engine speeds and generate increasingly high torques. At the same time, components are becoming ever more lightweight to save fuel. These and other technical optimizations in trucks increase noise and reduce natural damping.
The SACHS truck dual-mass flywheel (DMF) transmits the engine torque to the clutch pressure plate and the clutch disk. It decouples vibrations otherwise transferred from the engine to the driveline, effectively preventing rattling and humming noises. For the driver, this means the highest level of shifting and driving comfort.
The DMF for trucks offers a wide range of advantages. They include high noise quality with reduced fuel consumption, excellent vibration damping across the entire speed range, effective transmission and clutch protection and optimal start-stop behavior, as well as a long service life and reduced installation space requirements.
