CLUTCH PLATES & FRICTION PLATES
What really makes the ultimate clutch plate? A plate that meets or exceeds all customer requirements while offering all of the premium benefits without the premium price. When you look at performance, shift characteristics, durability, and noise, our plates perform better often without costing more.
We provide a flat plate, with very low variation and a consistent finish. The unique steps in our manufacturing process make a product with added benefits and added value without unnecessary added cost.

Success Means Keeping the Momentum
We can provide a special option for OEMs. We assemble packs with the correct number and order of steel plates, wave plates, and friction plates stacked together. We assemble and then measure the packs to ensure that they meet customer specifications. Ergonomic issues can be solved by using Means Clutch Packs. It can also reduce future warranty claims because our process avoids damage to individual plates.
Being the Best Means Something
Means Industries is currently developing new features in clutch plates - many covered by patent applications. We are working with specialized heat treatments and modified surface finishes that give a file-hard surface. In many cases, these surfaces are designed to work with specific friction paper to achieve the proper clutch performance and durability.
As a result of our commitment to technology, we are changing industry standards by raising the baseline on performance and quality. As the automotive industry advances, we plan to be right along side our customers as partners, looking for the best solutions.
