From mechanical energy to hydraulic energy to multiplied mechanical energy, learn to understand the principles of two-way and three-way torque converters. Niel Speetjens of ZF Aftermarket will detail the functions from fluid flow to lock-up and start-up to coupling phase. A look inside the operating ZF torque converter will help improve diagnostic skills and help participants understand wear patterns.
After completing this session, the webinar attendees will be able to:
- Understand the principles of a fluid clutch and torque converter
- Describe the three components that are used in a torque converter
- Understand hydro-dynamic fluid flow, torque multiplication stage and coupling stage
- Understand lock-up clutch operation and regulation
- Explain common failures and malfunctions in the torque converter and lock-up systems
After registering, a confirmation email will be sent containing information about joining the webinar.
