Title (EN) TORQUE CONVERTER INCLUDING SPACER PLATE FOR COAST ENGAGEMENT DIAPHRAGM SPRING
(FR) CONVERTISSEUR DE COUPLE COMPRENANT UNE PLAQUE D'ESPACEMENT POUR RESSORT À DIAPHRAGME DE PRISE DE MARCHE SUR L'ERRE
Abstract:
(EN) A torque converter is provided. The torque converter includes a damper assembly and a turbine assembly connected to the damper assembly. The turbine assembly includes an axially movable turbine piston, a spacer plate fixed to the turbine piston and a bias spring. The spacer plate retains the bias spring on the turbine piston with a preload force. A method of forming a torque converter is also provided. The method includes providing a bias spring contacting a front cover side surface of a turbine piston; and fixing a spacer plate to the turbine piston such that the spacer plate holds the bias spring against the front cover side surface of the turbine piston.
(FR) L'invention concerne un convertisseur de couple. Le convertisseur de couple comprend un ensemble d'amortisseur et un ensemble turbine relié à l'ensemble d'amortisseur. L'ensemble turbine comprend un piston de turbine axialement mobile, une plaque d'espacement fixée au piston de turbine et un ressort de sollicitation. La plaque d'espacement maintient le ressort de sollicitation sur le piston de turbine avec une force de précharge. L'invention concerne également un procédé de formation d'un convertisseur de couple. Le procédé met en œuvre la disposition d'un ressort de sollicitation en contact avec une surface latérale de capot avant d'un piston de turbine ; et la fixation d'une plaque d'espacement au piston de turbine de telle sorte que la plaque d'espacement maintient le ressort de sollicitation contre la surface latérale de capot avant du piston de turbine.
