US Manual Transmission Parts Manufacturing
A manual transmission is a type of transmission that requires the automobile driver to manually shift the gears using a gear stick and a clutch. The manual transmission traditionally gets better gas mileage compared to automatic transmissions, and are more commonly used in Europe and Asia. The manual transmission consists of several gears attached to two rows of shafts along with precision shims, precision thrust washers, and other metal stampings. The manual transmission operates certain gears at once to control the speed and torque of the automobile for different driving conditions.
The manual transmission uses several gears in two rows of shafts for operation. The gears will need to have precision metal shims to occupy the space between them and keep them in place. This is necessary to prevent slippage and other kinds of mechanical failure that can ruin or even damage the manual transmission. High quality precision shims will be needed for this purpose as they not only will occupy the excess space between the gears, but they will also reduce friction between the gears and other surfaces.
The importance of a manual transmission is that it allows the driver of the car to control the speed and torque of an automobile. Saving fuel economy and enhancing performance and speed off the line. The importance of precision shims are that they keep the gears in the manual transmission in place during operation.
