Systems for Automatic Transmissions

LuK has gained a high profile position at an early stage as an engineering partner for manufacturers of vehicles with automatic transmission.LuK has been producing dampers for automatic transmissions since as early as 1983. In 1983, LuK enhanced its position by developing and producing its own torque converter in its subsidiary plant in Wooster, Ohio, USA. Due to the expected growth of the automatic transmission market in passenger cars in Europe and Asia too, LuK commenced converter production in its plant in Bühl, Germany, enhancing its focus on the customer. As well as high-performance converters and lock-up clutches, dampers for lock-up clutches and brake bands are also part of the LuK product range.
