Title: CENTRIFUGAL PENDULUM
Abstract:
The invention relates to a centrifugal pendulum (1), in particular arranged in a housing (101) of a hydrodynamic torque converter (100), having a pendulum carrier (2), which is arranged for rotation about an axis of rotation (d) and has two side parts (3, 4), which accommodate pendulums (7) axially therebetween, which pendulums are distributed over the circumference and can be displaced with respect to the side parts (3, 4) by means of pendulum bearings (8) along pendulum paths with respect to the pendulum carrier (2). In order to reduce the friction between the pendulums (7) and the side parts (3, 4), a specified distance is set between the side parts (3, 4) and the pendulums (7) by means of respective spacers (15).
