The Clutch Disc is the main part of the clutch, and the clutch transmission power is the friction between the clutch plate and the effective part of the friction action so as to transmit the torque. Common damage include: spline hub tooth wear, loose rivets between the plate and the connecting plate, warping rupture of the plate, friction plate wear, ablation, hardening, cracks and rivets loose, during repair, the clutch plate To carefully check the repair. If you need to replace the friction plate for riveting, you should pay more attention to prevent the clutch clutch plate warpage.

The clutch disc is another part of the clutch, through the friction conversion, the clutch plate transmits the torque of the engine to the transmission to reduce the vibration and impact of the transmission system and accomplish the tasks of "off" and "off".

The structure of the clutch disc is mainly torsional vibration damper and non-torsional vibration damper, the clutch clutch plate is usually a shock absorber, can minimize transmission system vibration and noise. Only early cars and special-purpose cars, as well as cars with dual-mass flywheel construction, used clutch discs without a torsional damper.

Friction clutches rely on the principle of friction to transmit engine power. When there is a gap between the clutch plate and the flywheel, the flywheel does not drive the clutch plate to rotate, and the clutch is in a separated state. When the clamping force presses the clutch plate into the flywheel, the surface of the flywheel rotates the clutch plate on the clutch plate surface and the clutch is engaged. Clutches can be delivered by friction friction clutches, fluid-actuated hydraulic couplings, magnetically actuated electromagnetic clutches, and the most common vehicles are friction clutches.
