An automobile clutch is a mechanical device that sits between a vehicle’s engine and transmission system, transferring power from the engine while also assisting the driver in shifting gears. Using a gearbox that rotates at different speeds, the clutch engages and disengages the engine.
Many components make up the basic clutch mechanism, including the pilot bushing, crankshaft, flywheel, clutch disc, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing. Clutches are used in both manual and automated transmissions.
A single clutch is used in a manually driven gearbox, whereas many clutches are used in an automatic transmission vehicle. It avoids the formation of friction between gears, as well as any damage that may result from it.
The Germany Automotive Clutch Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
Schaeffler has created a clutch mechanism that allows stick shift automobiles to use hybrid power. The Schaeffler 48-volt hybrid module connects the car’s gearbox (manual or automatic) and engine with a 12-kilowatt electric motor and a pair of clutches.
That barely translates to 16 horsepower, but it’s enough for the system to zip around town on electric power alone at low speeds, as well as cruise at greater speeds with the engine turned off.
This, along with other benefits like as recapturing energy from brakes and integrated start/stop capabilities, allows the system to save up to 20% on gasoline. The system is built to work with a wide range of powertrains and to fit into current vehicles. Because of its tiny size, the system is suitable with a wide range of powertrains and can be easily integrated into current layouts.
