There’s nothing like taking your idea to a full-service manufacturer and getting a complete solution, start to finish.
We manufacturers would love it if we could design your component first and have you build your product around it. Of course, that’s usually not possible -- you have certain specs you want to meet, and we understand our design has to fit those parameters.
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.
Prototypes validate designs. Just as -- or possibly more -- important, they validate designs before they go into production.
If you’re designing a product with a hinge, there’s a decent chance you want it hidden away from the world.
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.
If you’ve been following our blog you’re already familiar with Vectis™ Springloaded Counterbalanced Hinges and what they can offer but, maybe you still aren’t sure what applications they can really be used for or, maybe you’re just landing on our website and getting to know Vectis™. So, in the spirit of sharing our counterbalance knowledge, we’ve tasked our very creative Design Engineers with imagining an application using Vectis™ Hinges and bringing that application to “life” in order to show you some of the countless applications these counterbalance hinges can be used on. Following you’ll find four applications that are perfect for Vectis™ hinges as imagined by our engineering thinkers, dreamers, and inventors:
