Title: CLUTCH MECHANISM AND TRANSMISSION SYSTEM COMPRISING SUCH A CLUTCH MECHANISM
Abstract:
The invention relates to a clutch mechanism (10) intended to be fitted between an engine and a transmission (400) of a motor vehicle, the clutch mechanism (10) comprising: -at least one clutch (100, 200), -a clutch support (500) designed to radially support the at least one clutch (100, 200), -a casing (307) housing at least one actuator (320, 330) designed to generate axial travel making it possible to configure the at least one clutch (100, 200) in an engaged or disengaged configuration, -at least one force transmission member (105, 205) comprising an inner end that interacts with the at least one actuator (320, 330) and an upper end that interacts with the at least one clutch (100, 200), -at least one axial wedging element (710, 720) for wedging the at least one actuator (320, 330) with respect to the clutch (100, 200) and an axial dimension of which is defined at least by the difference between the axial position of the at least one actuator (320, 330) with respect to the axial position of the corresponding clutch (100, 200). The invention also relates to a transmission system comprising such a clutch mechanism and to a method for assembling such a clutch mechanism.
