FCC Advanced Segment (FAS) technology from FCC North America creates a clean-cut groove with a clean-edge condition for improved drag and minimum waste and scrap, the company claims. The wider strip of friction material is cut and separated into multiple strips to form the individual segments longitudinally, while the specialized equipment simultaneously feeds and aligns the material to the steel core plate. Then it temporarily bonds the individual segments and cuts off the strip at the outer edge of the core plate following its arc. The process will repeat several times after the core plate is indexed to complete the whole surface, and then the opposite surface will be processed. To serve the auto industry’s interest to improve vehicle fuel economy and meet CAFE standards, FAS technology is suitable for automatic transmissions, CVT transmissions, and wet DCT transmissions.
