Not all manufacturers get to boast that they’ve been around for a century. But Weber Knapp can, and it’s thanks to our dedication to innovation and diversity. The technology has transformed since the 1900s, and so has the way we optimize your product.
Today’s hinges make life much easier and more comfortable. We have progressed so far from just a plain old door hinge to advanced solutions for kinematic motion, mechanical spring counterbalance, and spring assist technologies.

When it comes to manufacturing BBQ smokers, proper hinge design is vital. Smoker lids are often extremely heavy, which can make them a safety hazard.
As a kid, you might have marveled at the flip-up bar countertop at your parents’ favorite restaurant. But a lot has changed since then, and bar lift gates have improved significantly.
Getting the right hinge for your commercial or industrial product relies on having a trusted and reliable hinge manufacturer. So it might be a good time to talk about cellular manufacturing.
There are many ways to make something go from point A to point B. Not all of them are great long-term solutions.
Say you have a design for a component, but you’re not quite sure how to make it. You know it should be die stamped, but you only have a traditional die stamping machine, and that’s not going to cut it for this complex design.
Mechanical motion control manufacturers power up their machining equipment every day. CNC milling machines are creating detailed work, and jig routers are making deep cuts.
A mechanical motion control hinge manufacturer typically keeps a wide variety of capabilities in-house, but CNC press brake services are particularly important.
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).
