Concentric slave cylinders are fitted within the bell housing where the hydraulic cylinder encloses the input shaft. They are easy to fit and automatically adjust the travel of the diaphragm spring during clutch wear. The housings are manufactured almost exclusively from plastic resistant to high temperatures and now only rarely from aluminum. The integrated design where the guide tube and housing are injection molded as one part is particularly robust. A travel sensor can be fitted on the side of the housing in hybrid vehicles and automated clutch actuation systems. The release bearing can be equipped with a thrust washer to reduce friction or a cardan joint to prevent judder caused by geometrical defects.
LuK® is a leading manufacturer of the systems and components for vehicle's powertrains.

At present the company manufactures dampers, components for clutch systems, transmissions, as well as products for tractors.
