The Clutch Cover with Automatic Wear Compensation

The quality and service life of clutch facings have increased considerably, but even if treated carefully, they are by their nature subject to wear. Extending the service life is not just a matter of making the facings thicker, however, because the maximum possible stroke performed by the diaphragm spring imposes a limit on this in practice.

Advantages

  • Economical through the avoidance of clutch changes
  • All forces in the system remain constant, no rise in release load in the event of facing wear
  • Axial installation space for the wear travel in the release system no longer has to be reserved
  • For pull-type and push-type clutch covers
  • Independent of cushion-spring or diaphragm-spring characteristics
  • Completely exchangeable with conventional clutches
  • Maintenance-free
