If you’ve ever been to a military museum, you may have taken a tour of a tank or an armored truck. The huge hatches on those vehicles are very heavy -- if you’ve lifted one, you know what we’re talking about.
Furnishing your office is a big decision. There are a lot of factors to consider, like your team's comfort and health, an appealing aesthetic, cost, and durability.
The way people are working is changing, so the modern office (or home office!) should change to accommodate employee habits.
If you’re considering new office furniture, it's important to think about what your office needs. Do you need extremely durable pieces that will last for years? Do you want to prioritize comfort and ergonomics?
Engineers and designers often ponder over what type of hinges to use on their product. “Should we go with standard hinges or invest in heavy-duty industrial hinges?”
In most situations, a standard hinge is a cost-effective motion control method that will perform acceptably. However, if you’re looking for that next level of efficiency and safety, upgrading to a heavy-duty industrial hinge solution is the way to go.
No matter where you live, work, or play, there are hinges around. Cabinets, fridges, grills, cars, and airplanes all have hinges that we interact with on the day-to-day.
Even though electroplating sounds like a process straight out of a science fiction movie, it’s actually an excellent way to enhance the look, durability, and functionality of metal components.
Have you ever walked into a library, sat down at one of the computer stations, and wondered, “How could anyone ever use the monitor in this position?”
Some elements of motion control require a complex hinge design to meet rigorous industry needs and standards for your product. This is especially true for outdoor applications that endure both harsh weather conditions and repeated use (or, more likely, slamming).
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.
Books can be timeless -- until they’re in tatters. Library staffers know how challenging it is to keep books and other library media in good shape. It’s not just a matter of poor treatment by book borrowers. The very process of removing and replacing borrowed materials can cause scuffs, scrapes, and other damages.
