At ATRA’s Powertrain EXPO in Las Vegas, Nev., Raybestos Powertrain announced that new ZPAK® applications are now available for the GM 6L80/6L90 3-5-Reverse clutch and the Getrag 6DCT450/6DCT470 transmissions. The patented, single-sided ZPAK clutch system is best known for its ability to reduce hot spotting, eliminate coning and increase heat sink to outperform the OE.
“These newest Raybestos Powertrain ZPAK applications can outperform OE by increasing heat capacity and reducing temperatures by more than 30 percent,” said Reinhard Brinkmeier, vice president of sales and marketing for Raybestos Powertrain. “Our ZPAK also reduces stresses within the clutch pack, which reduces core temperatures for a more durable transmission with outstanding performance, even in high-stress applications.”
Transmission shops should expect to see more dual-clutch transmissions, such as the 6DCT450/6DCT470, in the near future. “If you haven’t seen one of these in your shop yet, we’re confident that you will see it soon,” noted Brinkmeier.
