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.
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?
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.
Product makers who want to take their design to another level have more motion control options than ever.
