  • Publication number: 20210062891
    Abstract: A pendulum damping device including a support that rotates about an axis, at least one pendulum body and at least one rolling member guiding the movement of the pendulum body relative to the support, the rolling member engaging with at least one rolling track rigidly connected to the support and with at least one rolling track rigidly connected to the pendulum body. The rolling member includes a first part defining a first axial end, a second part defining a second axial end, and a resilient element arranged in the rolling member so as to axially separate these two parts so that the rolling member exerts an axial clamping force on one of the pendulum body and the support during the movement of the pendulum body relative to the support.

  • Patent number: 10359082
    Abstract: A torsional damper for vehicle transmission systems comprises an input element rotationally movable around an axis and exhibiting at least one window comprising two angularly spaced lateral edges and a radially external edge. An output element is rotationally movable around the axis and exhibits at least one window comprising two angularly spaced lateral edges and a radially external edge. An elastic return member capable of being received simultaneously in the window of the input element and the window of the output element generates a force acting against rotation of the output element with respect to the input element. An additional element is rotationally movable around the axis and integral with one of the input element and output element. The additional element exhibits an edge comprising at least one region projecting radially into the window of the input element and output element with which the additional element is integral.

  • Patent number: 10215236
    Abstract: The invention relates on the one hand to a progressivity device for a clutch friction disk, comprising a progressivity web (1) having a central rotation axis (X), having on one face of its external rim (1a) a series of blades (2) on which are configured at least two deformable pleats (20a, 20b) delimiting a region (20) intended to support a first friction lining (G1) and equipped with a stiffness element, and on the other face a second friction lining (G2) fastened symmetrically to the first lining (G1), wherein the stiffness element comprises at least one tab projecting below the region (20), one end of which is intended to come into abutment against the web (1) upon deformation of the pleats (20a, 20b), limiting the arching of the region (20); and on the other hand to a friction disk comprising such a device.

  • Patent number: 9482306
    Abstract: This device comprises two coaxial elements mounted rotatably with respect to a spring, and two seats for positioning the spring. Each seat comprises a dorsal pivot projection configured in two coaxial elements. The pivot projection is delimited by a cylinder portion whose section is a first circular arc whose tangent forms an angle ? with the axis of the spring. The section of each receptacle is formed by a second circular arc, having the same center and radius of curvature as the first circular arc, the tangent of which forms with the axis of the spring an angle ? greater than ?. The pivot axes are parallel to one another at a distance L, and are included in a plane located at a distance R from the rotation axis. The maximum deflection angle of the device is ?. ? is within the range [arctg(L/2R)??/8 to arctg(L/2R+?].

  • Patent number: 9248715
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a suspension bearing device, comprising a rolling bearing forming an axial stop along a main axis and at least one seal adapted for protecting the rolling bearing from ingress of water or of polluting particles. The device is characterized in that it also comprises a bottom cup and a top cup made of plastic, in contact with the rolling bearing, the bottom cup forming a bearing means for a suspension spring, and in that the or each seal is made of thermoplastic overmolded onto a first element between the cups and comprises a base of substantially annular shape from which extends at least one sealing lip in contact with the second element between the cups. The invention also relates to a strut of a motor vehicle, comprising a damper and a suspension bearing device as mentioned above.
