Clutches and How It Works ...

Clutch transmission equipment that connects the crankshaft gear transmission shaft with. Coupling function is to transfer engine power to the transmission, then change the transmission rate in accordance with the desired speed.

Under normal circumstances, where the coupling function works well, so the driver pressing the clutch pedal, engine power will be decided, because when the pedal is pressed then it will encourage the style press release fork and release would encourage the release bearing fork. So the release bearing will lift and push the spring diaphragm pressure plate, clutch disc will be released with the flywheel.

Simultaneously gears going regardless of the effect of engine speed. These conditions allow the transfer gears in the transmission. Nowadays there are many different types of couplings including friction clutch, clutch fluid, coping centrifugal, and magnetic coupling. But the most widely used by vehicle type is the type of coping friction plates and clutch friction cone type, which for the clutch plate type clutch plate can be wet and dry plate clutch. Clutch plate is wet-plate clutch which plate soaked with lubricating oil. Most of the clutch of this type used by motorcycle. While this type of plate dry clutch is a plate-type clutch plate not soaked by the lubricating oil. Generally used in older cars and motorcycles made in Europe. Excess of the wet clutch plates are not quickly wear out, because it is lubricated by oil. Disadvantages, obstacles friction less power so it cannot move as effectively as dry clutch. Moreover, if the adding lubricant additives, the clutch could slip. Dry clutch wear faster because they do not hit oil but energy transfer from the engine into gear better.

In general, the main part of clutch consists of three kinds, i.e. coupling unit, close coupling, and the unit liberators. The unit consists of clutch plate clutch, plate press, and the spring clutch. Close coupling bound by the flywheel, while the inside wheel shaft attached to gears and placed between the flywheel and plate press. Plate press will push the clutch plate against with the pressure of the spring-spring coping. These devices are made from cast iron materials, where the surface was made smooth and flat. While the clutch plate is made to provide greater friction on the flywheel and plate press and placed between the two. On the second clutch plate surface is paired with lining and riveted rivets, and usually on the surface of the metal pieces plate given. Its function is to strengthen and also to distribute the heat. In addition, in the middle of the plate clutch torsion spring there. Torsion spring serves to reduce the surprises that happened at the time of clutch work and to prevent the possible outbreak of clutch plates or other damage, such as crooked plate clutch.

The unit consists of fork liberator liberators, bearing, and press a lever to pull, thus freeing the clutch plate.

How it works is if the engine rotating clutch, flywheel itself come round, while at the wheel of this style is paired coupling cap which must also rotate. In this case the gear shaft or main shaft gears can not rotate, so too with plate clutch mounted by means of a groove on the axle that enables it to move along the shaft gear. Furthermore, if we want to move the wheel, this can be done with operate the pedals, which at the time of the pedal in the lift springs clutch spring plate will hit the press on the flywheel. This causes the clutch plate is sandwiched between the flywheels with plate press. This plate was originally going to slip, and rubbing against the flywheel and plate press but then will gradually carried on spinning and then will rotate the main shaft gear
