Valeo offers a complete range (Cover assy, Driven plates, Release bearings) for commercial vehicles: medium trucks, heavy trucks up to 44 tons and coaches. In order to be in line with the truck fleets’ expectations, we only offer premium clutches for the commercial vehicle market.
More powerful engines, longer ratios and new lifetime specifications have led to the development and introduction of more complex clutch designs such as Valeo S.A.T. (Self Adjusting Technology). S.A.T. is revolutionary Valeo technology that uses a self adjusting facing wear compensation device on the pressure plate, thus enhancing clutch life and improving pedal comfort. S.A.T. is a technology that Valeo supplies to truck manufacturers.
Focus Twin disc
For the trucks dedicated to public works we also offer a complete range of twin disc kits. With an increased wear capacity +70% versus single disc technology, our twin disc kits provide higher durability. Thanks to the 2 discs, they also offer a higher heat transfer.
Focus Reman range
Valeo remanufactures the CV clutch kit, especially the large diameter over 330mm. The remanufacturing process is integrated into our facility that assembles the OE clutch kits. Having implemented an efficient collection process all over Europe, Valeo is able to get the cores from all its customers and help save up to 50 kilos of raw material per kit (up to 90 kilos if this figure is measured on twin disc kits). With the remanufacturing process, Valeo demonstrates its engagement in sustainable development.
After collection all the cores are sorted, dismantled and cleaned, and, before re assembling in the production line, the components are tested on benches. The test benches and the production are the same ones that Valeo uses for the validation of the production of the clutch kits supplied as OE.
