The following is the first part of a three-part series about the Kongsberg Automotive clutch servo.
THE CLUTCH SERVO
The clutch servo is one of those products you don’t know the value of before you don’t have it. It takes a lot of power to activate the clutch pedal in powerful manual transmission vehicles. Even though many truckers don’t skip leg day, it can become too heavy only to use human strength to actuate the clutch. This is where the Kongsberg Automotive clutch servo comes to the rescue!
The clutch servo will proportionally amplify the pedal force with the help of air. It’s controlled hydraulically by the Kongsberg Automotive Master Cylinder and operates the clutch mechanically via a lever system.
EXPERIENCE AND KNOW-HOW
The truck engines in the mid 70’s had become so powerful that they needed powerful forces to operate the clutch. This was when Volvo came knocking on Kongsberg Automotive’s
door, asking if they could produce their newly developed clutch servo.
Kongsberg Automotive has been producing clutch servos since 1975, when Volvo first approached KA with their design. KA further developed the design from Volvo to fit different trucks and specifications from various OEM’s.
From 75’ to the present day, Kongsberg Automotive has perfected clutch servo production, with great new features and advances in quality. In addition, KA has, over the years, created rigorous routines and systems alongside the major OEMs to establish a quality level that is best in class and drives innovation. This rich history, attention to detail, and hard work have led us to the highly regarded clutch servos we offer today.
By choosing Kongsberg Automotive clutch servos, you choose years of experience, innovation, and products you can trust will last and function.
