Segmented Synchronizer System from Friction Systems
The innovative solution for increased efficiency as well as reduced space, weight and costs for manual, dual-clutch, and automated manual transmissions.
- Drop-in Replacement for Multi-Cone
- Cost Advantages
- Weight Savings
- Reduced Space
- Increased Efficiency
The innovative Segmented Synchronizer System S3 increases efficiency and provides space, weight, and cost benefits compared to conventional multi-cone synchronizers while maintaining equivalent performance and shift quality. The key innovation is a split friction ring with a small inner cone angle for generating high friction torque and a large outer cone angle for release without self-locking.
The segmented synchronizer can either be integrated into the existing space in a standard multiple-cone synchronizer (drop-in design) or into new applications to utilize all the benefits of the design. This makes it the ideal solution for new transmission designs (manual, dual-clutch, and automated manual transmissions) as well as for transmissionupgrades or improvement programs.
