BorgWarner begins delivery of Dual-clutch module for ZF

BorgWarner has started production of a new dual-clutch module family to be featured in the latest transmission from ZF. Initially utilized in the dual-clutch transmission for V6 and V8 biturbo gasoline engines, and a V8 biturbo diesel engine from major automakers, BorgWarner’s modules are also expected to be used in a number of upcoming hybrid applications.

Specifically designed for high-performance sports cars, BorgWarner’s first European-built dual-clutch module family was developed and produced in Germany. BorgWarner states that the unit offers improved durability and reliability and contributes to enhanced shift feel.

"We are pleased to expand our business collaboration with ZF by supplying our state-of-the-art dual-clutch modules," said Robin Kendrick, president and general manager, BorgWarner Transmission Systems. "BorgWarner drew upon its extensive expertise in engineering transmission components to develop a modular high-efficiency solution featuring a compact and low-weight design. As a result, our dual-clutch module is an ideal solution for sports cars and other high-torque and high-rev applications."

BorgWarner’s innovative new dual-clutch module family is available with torque capacities of 570, 700 and 1,000Nm and allows shifts within fractions of a second with no perceptible interruption of the power flow.

The unit also employs high-energy wet friction materials with a special groove design to minimize spin losses and provide improved heat resistance, high torque capacity and reliable operation over the transmission’s lifetime. In combination with its tunable launch characteristics, the dual-clutch module is said to contribute to fuel economy comparable to single-clutch automated gearboxes and shift quality to 'rival the best conventional automatic transmissions'.
