  • Publication number: 20080041688
    Abstract: A dual clutch transmission having radially nested clutches including an outer clutch having first inner and outer clutch disks that are interleaved between each other where the first outer clutch disks are operatively mounted to a first outer support carrier. The transmission also includes an inner clutch having second inner and outer clutch disks operatively interleaved between each other and operatively mounted to a second inner support carrier. A common disk carrier has a common clutch disk carrier that operatively supports the first inner clutch disks of the outer clutch and the second outer clutch disks of the inner clutch.

  • Publication number: 20060061018
    Abstract: The invention relates to an installation and method for producing straight ceramic fibres. Said installation essentially comprises a mixing device for producing a suspension of ceramic powder, aqueous amine oxide and cellulose. The suspension production occurs batch-wise or continuously and can take place in one or several steps with the addition of all or individual components. Said installation also comprises a device for concentrating the produced suspension of ceramic powder, aqueous amine oxide and cellulose, whereby said device intensively mixes with heating, shears and transports the suspension with water evaporation, until a precisely determined amount of water evaporates and a suspension of ceramic powder is formed in a mouldable solution of the cellulose in aqueous amine oxide. Said concentrating device also comprises a device linked to the above mentioned device, whereby the mouldable ceramic cellulose solution suspension is processed into ceramic raw fibres in a rope shape.

  • Publication number: 20050284725
    Abstract: A dual clutch transmission having radially nested clutches includes an outer clutch having a plurality of first outer clutch disks, a plurality of first inner clutch disks, and a first inner support carrier, with the first inner clutch disks operatively mounted to the first inner carrier. The transmission further includes an inner clutch having a plurality of second outer clutch disks, a plurality of second inner clutch disks, and a second inner support carrier is included. The second inner clutch disks are operatively mounted to the second inner carrier. A common disk carrier having a first outer clutch disk carrier operatively supports the first outer clutch disks of the outer clutch and a second outer clutch disk carrier that operatively supports the second outer clutch disks of the inner clutch.
