Understanding Dual Mass Flywheels

VIDEO: Understanding Dual-Mass Flywheels

Proper procedures are critical to follow when making repairs on vehicles with a DMF.

More than three decades ago, Schaeffler engineers developed a revolutionary technology for dampening torsional vibrations in the drivetrain: the dual-mass flywheel (DMF).

The DMF is different than a conventional flywheel, as it’s made with two metal plates that are designed to rotate against each other.

Today, a DMF is installed in 50% of all new vehicles globally.
