LuK Master Cylinder
The master cylinder converts pedal force into hydraulic pressure
The master cylinder is a component of the clutch release system that delivers the necessary pressure build-up in the hydraulic system. It is usually mounted to the front bulkhead or to the pedal holder with bolts or a bayonet lock. The master cylinder’s piston rod is connected directly to the clutch pedal inside the vehicle.
Modern clutch master cylinders not only carry-out their basis function, but a variety of additional tasks as well. In order to improve safety, comfort and handling today’s vehicles have cruise control, start inhibitor systems, an electric park brake, torque adaption and automatic start-stop systems. These additional systems require further reductions in space and weight in order to realize simple and fast installation.
