  • 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
  • What is a Friction Hinge?
    A friction hinge, or torque hinge, is a specialty hinge that gives resistance to the pivoting motion. They are typically used to control motion or hold a pivoting object opened or closed. The most common and relatable application is that of a "laptop hinge". These motion control hinges are also
  • Selecting the Right Hinge
    When you're building any sort of enclosure with access to its interior, hinges will be a concern.
  • 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
  • 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
  • Clever Seam Design Makes the Coiled Pin Perfect for Hinges
    The Coiled Pin's tucked seam will allow smooth, interference-free rotation of hinge/axle components in the vast majority of assemblies.
  • Inexpensive Hinges Can Cost More
