Michael Hennebelle has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Abstract: A method for assembling a pendulum-type damping device (1) includes the steps of force-fitting a first end of the spacer (17) into an opening (26) of a first part (3a) of a pendulum mass (3). A support (2) is positioned so that the spacer (17) spans a corresponding opening of the support (2). A roller is positioned between the spacer (17) and the edge of the opening of the support (2). The second end (17b) of the spacer (17) is force fit into an opening (26) of a second part (3b) of the mass (3).

Abstract: A torsional damper (1) comprises a hub (2) coupled to a radial annular web (6); two guide washers; elastic members (9); and friction means, relative angular deflections of the guide washers and the annular web (6) being limited in a first rotation direction (D) by a first series of stops (23) of the guide washers that interact with a first series of protruding parts (25) of the annular web (6), and in a second rotation direction (R) by a second series of stops (24) of the guide washers that interact with a second series of protruding parts (26) of the annular web (6).
Abstract: A torsion damping device (10), in particular for a motor vehicle transmission, wherein the damping device (10) comprises at least two pendulum oscillators, a first washer (24A) having at least one first pendulum oscillator (P1) and a second washer (24B) having at least one second pendulum oscillator (P2).
