Components for dual clutch transmission systems
Two transmissions are present in one housing in a dual-clutch transmission. The even and odd gears are each on their own shaft and are separated from the engine by their own clutch. This means that two gears can be selected at the same time, but only one shaft has a friction-locked connection to the engine. There is no need for a torque converter as found in an automatic transmission.
Advantages of the dual clutch transmission:
The comfort of an automatic transmission with the efficiency of a manual transmission
Structure and function
Among other things, our valve modules are used to actuate dual-clutch transmissions with dry clutches. Different valves designed by us for the specific application can be combined with one another as required in a very small space to form modules, before they are integrated into the hydraulic control system of the transmission.
