When trying to include an innovative or safety-minded motion control design in your product, there’s a sneaky-confusing word you should know: torque.
Modern product design is heavily influenced by motion control. Many of today’s flashy or high-end products take advantage of innovative hinge mechanism design to stand out from the crowd.
Product makers who want to take their design to another level have more motion control options than ever.
Off-the-shelf solutions don’t fit every design. To improve user experience, resolve a safety issue, or stand out from competitors, everything you put into your product design should fit like a glove.
There are many reasons a design engineer would want to calculate center of gravity. One of the big ones? Keeping your lid, door, or cover from slamming into something -- or someone.
Motion and perceived quality are closely linked. When a lid, cover, or door moves smoothly with just the “right” amount of effort, users can tell it's a high quality product.
Like so many other manufacturing technologies, counterbalance systems make life easier for the end customer. Matched with the right application, they can be a game-changer for user experience and safety.
