Today’s buyers want more features integrated into their product. They also want something that doesn't take up a lot of space on their property or in their store. So, how does a product designer balance the two?
Today’s outdoor and backyard living enthusiasts treat grilling almost like a religion. They’re not afraid to drop down four-figure amounts on your latest grill or BBQ smoker design idea -- if you can convince them it’s worth the price.
Today “motion control” implies automation, robotics, and electronics. But you’d be amazed what you can achieve when you combine old-fashioned mechanical engineering with a creativity-minded manufacturer.
When talking about today’s motion control solutions, engineers tend to think in terms of motors and cylinders. True, those can provide movement, but so can mechanical motion control, which has come a long way in terms of complexity and quality.
Complex hinge design is a staple of many high-end, high-performing products. The math required to make your lid, cover, or door work as advertised can be wildly different depending on your application.
A custom hinge manufacturer should not just be a simple assembly line -- it should be a full-fledged partner in your process.
So your next design -- be it a dishwasher, smoker, tanning bed, refrigerator, or another piece of equipment -- needs the support and reliability of heavy-duty industrial hinges. You’re working on your hinge design calculations and material specs, and things are getting complicated.
Why bother with chemistry and electronics when you can get great performance from sturdy, reliable mechanical motion control?
Gas springs and their close cousins are abundant in many industries and applications. From overhead bins in airplanes to ATM machines, and from cargo doors to armored vehicle doors, you can find examples everywhere.
When it comes to high-end kitchen appliance design, great performance is as important on the outside as it is on the inside.
