ContiTech Vibration Control Launches Composite Torque Clutch

ContiTech Vibration Control Launches Composite Torque Clutch

ContiTech Vibration Control has developed a new torque clutch with significantly reduced weight to less than half that of previous variants, which helps to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle, driving down fuel consumption further as a result, and made possible because of the materials used.

One important element is carbon-fibre-reinforced polyamide. The assembly also contains components made from thermoplastic polyurethane. This combination makes the torque clutch particularly abrasion-resistant. The material reduces wear throughout the entire service life of the component. In passenger cars with electronic steering assistance, it links the engine with the transmission at the steering and protects the transmission by compensating for the axle offset in the event of wear.
