LuK Dual Mass Flywheel
Vibration damping in the drivetrain
Vibrations that occur in the drivetrain of a vehicle can be heard as low engine-speed rattle and droning. To counteract this, LuK developed the dual-mass flywheel and made it production-ready back in 1985. It reduces vibrations in the drivetrain and delivers smooth operation.
A conventional flywheel consists of a single rigid part. A DMF, on the other hand, consists of two masses mounted so they can rotate against each other.
Integrated into the DMF is a spring and damper systems that almost completely absorbs the torsional vibration from the engine.
This way, the DMF meets increasing demands from car owners for driving comfort.
- Reduces noise and vibration from the drivetrain
- Increases driving comfort by reducing load on crankshaft and transmission.
- Allows driving at low engine speeds, which reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
- Long service life
- Best OE quality equal to mass-produced new vehicle
