Final assembly of clutch driven plates
All lever type units are assembled, activated, lever height set and then activated and reset again. This assembly and testing is carried out on purpose built precision equipment to ensure total accuracy in setting.
We ensure clutch production and quality is consistent and controlled
Carried out on automatic riveting equipment, and primarily only high quality ‘asbestos free’ VH-03 friction material manufactured by Frenos Sauleda, and which compares to original equipment specification material is selected and used on driven plates ensuring smooth clutch control and long clutch life.
After final clutch assembly
Every clutch component is tested on specialised test equipment and computer analysed to determine that its function and activation performs within the specific tolerances that have been acquired by us after the testing and appraising original equipment components.
Having remanufactured over 4,000,000 clutch components
Fleetway has seen the resultant wear characteristics of those worn exchange units and has noted the various strengths and weaknesses of the very many different clutch design types that are manufactured.
It is that acquired knowledge that places Fleetway in the prestigious situation of knowing what improvements if any are required during the remanufacture of a clutch to ensure it will function perfectly, and last as long as an original manufacturers unit, if not longer.
