  • Strength of Hinges
    Not only door dimensions, orientation and position of the center of gravity, but. also the position of the hinges and the tolerances of installing them can have a. profound effect on the load carrying capability of a hinge.
  • Hinge Optimization
    Primary Function: To hold one edge of the door in place as the. opposite edge swings open. Secondary Functions: To allow the door to open enough for easy access. and so that an aisle is not blocked. To keep the hinge side of a door from bending away. from a gasket or failing due to an explosion
  • Sizing up Hinges
    Real-world analysis prevents premature failure, overdesign, and seal compromise. The question of hinge strength often arises during the design of an enclosure. Determining the strength of the individual hinges is fairly straightforward, but relating the strength predictions to real-life situations
  • Care and feeding of living hinges
    Polypropylene resins are uniquely suited for one-piece integral or living hinges. Due to its toughness and ductility, polypropylene (PP) is uniquely suited for a fastening and joining concept that can't easily be reproduced with other engineering thermoplastics: the integral or living hinge
  • How to Design the Optimum Hinge
    There are two primary types of hinges: 1) a free fit hinge has little to no friction or drag when the latch or handle is rotated. Hinge components are "free" to rotate independent of one another, and 2) a friction fit hinge requires interference to prevent free rotation of components relative
  • Ten Factors ForSpecifying Hinges
    Incorporating hinges early into designs helps keep costs down and options open. Product Engineer Engineering team for hinges Mounted inside formed doors, a concealed hinge eliminates appearance concerns. Detent hinges are suitable for lightweight applications. A pin-style hinge offers easy lift-off
  • Hinge selection for industrial enclosures
    Here's how to sort through the myriad of hinge options available to designers. Time was when enclosure hinges were basically pivoted connections between doors and frames. But modern hinges often do much more: They can make a door easily removable, close a door automatically when it reaches
  • Hinge Design Guidelines
    that are hand blanked and curled, this is less important. We may suggest a different knuckle length, number of knuckles or overall hinge length to afford you the optimum value. Partial end knuckles on lighter hinges (below .074") can bind because they are deformed in the cut off operation. Unequal leaves
