Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF) Rotation
DMFs are designed to eradicate the vibration generated by the modern engine. It does this using a series of arc springs that are positioned around the diameter of the flywheel. These do the job traditionally done by the springs in the centre plate of a clutch. Whereas a traditional clutch hub would move around 19 degrees (even clutches with so called long travel dampers only move 19 degrees) a DMF has the ability to move in excess of 100 degrees, providing a much greater damping capability, and ensuring the gearbox is protected, and driver comfort increased.
