SELECTABLE ONE-WAY CLUTCH

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 08:00:00 EDT

A selectable one-way clutch includes: a fixed plate; an annular rotating plate that faces the fixed plate and rotates relative to the fixed plate; an engagement piece that is held by the fixed plate to protrude toward the rotating plate; an engagement concave portion formed on the rotating plate to be engaged with the engagement piece; and an annular selector plate placed between the fixed plate and the rotating plate and switches states of the engagement piece, the selectable one-way clutch selectively switching between an engagement state in which the engagement piece engages with the engagement concave portion and a release state in which rotations of the rotating plate in both directions are allowed. Further, notch portions are formed on an outer periphery portion of at least one of the selector plate and the rotating plate to have a shape passing through the plate in a thickness direction.



WEDGE CLUTCH WITH STACKED WEDGE PLATES

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 08:00:00 EDT

A wedge clutch comprising an axis of rotation, a hub having a first radially outwardly facing surface sloping radially inward in a first axial direction, an outer race located radially outward of the hub and including, a first radially inwardly facing surface, and, a circumferential groove in the first radially inwardly facing surface, and, a first plurality of wedge plates radially disposed between the hub and outer race, each wedge plate in the first plurality of wedge plates including, a respective second radially inwardly facing surface directly engaged with the first radially outwardly facing surface, and, a respective second radially outwardly facing surface, wherein said each wedge plate has a different respective first radial dimension between the respective second radially inwardly and outwardly facing surfaces.



MULTI-DISK CLUTCH

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 08:00:00 EDT

A multi-plate clutch, in particular a dual-plate clutch, for coupling a drivetrain of a motor vehicle engine having at least one transmission input shaft, in particular for a dual clutch is provided, having a counter plate for introducing a torque from the driveshaft, a clutch plate for channeling the torque to the transmission input shaft, the clutch plate having a first lining ring for frictionally engaged torque transfer and a second lining ring which is movable axially relative to the first lining ring for frictionally engaged torque transfer, a separator plate which is movable axially relative to the counter plate, the separator plate being positioned between the first lining ring and the second lining ring in the axial direction, and a contact plate which is movable axially relative to the counter plate by an actuating element to frictionally compress the clutch plate, the first lining ring being positioned between the contact plate and the separator plate in the axial direction and the second lining ring being positioned between the separator plate and the counter plate, there being n separator plates and n+1 lining rings provided, the movement of the separator plate in the axial direction being coupled with the movement of the contact plate in the axial direction by means of a coupling mechanism, where over at least part of the distance between an open position of the contact plate corresponding to the disengaged position of the multi-plate clutch and a maximum closed position of the contact plate corresponding to the engaged position of the multi-plate clutch when the lining rings are worn, a current distance translation ratio i(sA) of the axial displacement of the contact plate to the axial displacement of the separator plate which is furthest distant in the axial direction from the contact plate at an axial position sA of the contact plate deviates from i(sA)=n+1, and/or a current distance translation ratio i(sA)j of the axial displacement of the contact plate to the axial displacement of a jth separator plate at an axial position sA of the contact plate deviates from i(sA)j=(n+1)/j where j is counted starting from the counter plate in the direction of the contact plate. Because the distance translation ratio of the coupling mechanism deviates from n+1, the multi-plate clutch can easily be adapted to differently-dimensioned lining rings, so that transmission of an especially high torque is enabled with the help of a friction clutch with different configurations of a motor vehicle drivetrain.
