Lock-up clutches

The "lock-up clutch" or bridge clutch is arranged inside the converter and bridges the force flow between pump and turbine during driving. This slip minimisation process is required for consumption reasons. Also, in many applications the clutch is operated selectively under certain load conditions. This improves noise behaviour and driving dynamics.
