Dual Mass Flywheels

The DMF is two independent masses separated by springs.  This splits the inertia between the engine and the transmission to keep the vibration and resonance below the engine idle speed.  As a result, there is no transmission gear rattle in the normal speed range of the vehicle.  The benefits of the Valeo DMF include:

  • Reduction of engine vibrations going to the transmission, thus increasing ride comfort.
  • Keeping the drivetrain in good condition by using a "torque limiter", which allows for slip under extreme conditions.
  • Longer rigid disc life.
  • Reduced gear shift effort.
