State-of-the-Art Technology for Optimum Reliability:SACHS Truck Clutches.

SACHS truck clutches stand for performance, endurance, and reliability. To make sure that commercial vehicles and their payloads arrive at their destination safely and on time.

Clutches

SACHS clutch for trucks with pre-assembled clutch release bearing

SACHS truck clutches are manufactured using premium materials and are particularly durable. Remanufacturing is even taken into consideration during the design of the clutch. SACHS clutches are specially tailored to the requirements of the vehicle manufacturers. The clutch is characterized by the ideal transmission of power from the engine to the road meaning that the performance of the vehicle is fully utilized. The fact that over 170 million SACHS clutches have been sold demonstrates the long-standing experience and the high level of competence of the specialists and the market leader in this sector. Furthermore, SACHS truck clutches meet the latest environmental standards.

SACHS offers a wide range of clutch solutions and has been successfully active in the field of clutch remanufacturing for many years.

Environmentally-friendly clutch facings for less wear and tear

A special facing is used for SACHS clutch disks with the sizes 362 mm, 395 mm, 400 mm und 430 mm. It is particularly strong and thermally stable. This innovative clutch facing protects the friction surface of the flywheel and significantly decreases wear and tear which contributes crucially to the economic efficiency of trucks.

SACHS clutch facings are produced under environmentally-friendly conditions and without the use of critical material such as mercury. Additionally, no solvents whatsoever are used in the production process. The use of facings that are free from asbestos and lead is a standard feature, as is the compliance with REACH.

Clutch release bearings

SACHS offers high-quality clutch release bearings. They feature innovative protective mechanisms, which sustainably minimize vehicle failures.

XTend clutch pressure plate

XTend clutch pressure plate

The XTend clutch pressure plate separates facing wear from the movement of the diaphragm spring. The compensation mechanism constantly registers the reduction in facing thickness and reliably compensates this distance by turning an adjusting ring. This ensures a constant balance of forces and extends the service life because the facings can be subjected to more wear. The XTend design provides an additional advantage: In case of operational wear, the axial installation space required for the clutch system is reduced thanks to the application of XTend.

Rigid flywheels

In addition to the DMF, SACHS offers rigid flywheels for all common vehicle types.

Clutch remanufacturing

SACHS is leading in the field of clutch remanufacturing, even - and in particular - for commercial vehicles. Remanufactured clutches meet the highest demands in terms of quality, service life, and innovation. Unlike products from imitators, SACHS remanufactures clutches with the know-how of the original equipment, i. e. each product receives a free upgrade during the remanufacturing process and is state-of-the-art. For remanufactured SACHS products, the same warranty agreements apply as for new parts.

The return of used parts is managed via CoremanNet.

FAQ About XTend

When replacing the XTend clutch pressure plate, why do I always have to replace the disk and the clutch pressure plate?

The reason is that the clutch pressure plate adapts to the disk. If it is worn, the entire system no longer fits together.

What needs to be considered when reusing an XTend clutch?

First, loosen the stop bolt at the pressure plate prior to dismantling. However, do not completely unscrew the stop bolt! Now, the fastening screws of the pressure plate can be loosened. When reinstalling the pressure plate, make sure the positioning pin of the stop is in the locating hole of the pressure plate. Finally, retighten the stop bolt with the specified torque.
