Title: INTERCALATED FRICTION PAD SEGMENTS
Abstract:
A friction pad segment comprises a puck (500) of friction material for gripping a surface. A segment plate (150) comprises first fingers (210, 211) on a first end and second fingers (110, 111) on a second end. The first fingers (210, 211) are shaped complementarily to the second fingers (110, 111) so as to intercalate the second fingers (110, 111) when the segment plate (150) is cleaved along a first plane (PI). A cushion assembly for a clutch can be formed by placing a plurality of friction pad segments serially adjacent to one another and by placing respective second fingers (110, 111) of the plurality of segment plates (150) in adjacent respective first fingers (210, 211) of the plurality of segment plates (150). First fingers (210, 211) of a second friction pad segment and second fingers (110, 111) of a third friction pad segment on a second side of a perforated disc (450) can be affixed to puck holes (531-534) in a first puck (500) on a first side of the perforated disc (450).
