Mitsubishi Fuso é a primeira marca de caminhões a possuir câmbio de dupla embreagem

As transmissões de dupla embreagem ficaram populares nos automóveis. Agora, a Mitsubishi Fuso é a primeira marca de caminhões a receber o sistema de transmissão que se caracteriza por possuir uma embreagem para as marchas pares e outra para as ímpares.

O câmbio M038S6 "Duonic transmission", de seis marchas, utiliza-se de embreagens banhadas a óleo, pode funcionar no modo automático ou ser operado manualmente.

A Mitsubishi Fuso tem 85% de suas ações sob propriedade da Daimler, e o restante, da Mitsubishi.


* Fuso is the first manufacturer worldwide to present a double-clutch transmission in commercial vehicles
* Known as the "Duonic", this double-clutch transmission combines automated driving with the advantages of a manual transmission

Stuttgart/Kawasaki - Fuso has presented a world first with a double-clutch transmission for commercial vehicles. The new transmission drives like an automatic transmission, but unlike a fully automatic torque converter transmission, it makes for lower consumption figures and therefore lower exhaust emissions. The double-clutch transmission is an automated manual transmission. As with a fully automatic transmission it is a two-pedal system, there is an accelerator pedal, a brake pedal and a selector lever. The selector lever allows automatic or manual gearshift mode to be selected.

The M038S6 "Duonic transmission" has six forward gears and a reverse gear. The P-function ensures safe parking by preventing the vehicle from rolling away. "Duonic" features a non-wearing wet clutch, which lowers maintenance costs by eliminating the need to replace worn clutch discs. A creep function has been added to the wet clutch, as is usual for automatic transmission with a torque converter. This enables the vehicle's speed to be easily controlled when moving slowly - for example when manoeuvring or in stop-and-go traffic - and hill-starts are also made easier.
