A breakthrough in torque converter technology which uses stamped parts to redefines the space in the converter. Axial space savings of 60% or 18mm is achieved in the most critical dimension of the converter, along the hubs and shafts. In addition, the torque capacity or MP2000 characteristic is improved by10%. This pace can be used for high-capacity dampers, multiple plate clutches or for simplification of other components. These advantages are possible through a new blade design and a high torque-capacity one-way clutch concept developed by LuK.
