The most durable and versatile products can turn out to be intimidating to the user if the wrong type of heavy-duty hinges are used. Ask anyone that lifts heavy lids all day -- spring-assisted hinges are necessary for the safety and efficiency of your entire staff.
Summer time means eating outside on the picnic table, surrounded by family and friends. But who loves moving the heavy table once the meal is done? No one.
Cue Weber Knapp's Vectis™ Technology counterbalance hinges - the future of hideaway tables, work benches, seating, and more.
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.
At first glance, you might suspect that the only place you’re going to see a Vectis™ Counterbalance is in an industrial setting, perhaps mounted on an enormous machine shield, or maybe some type of oversize industrial tank lid.
Yes, Weber Knapp specializes in motion control engineering and counterbalance hinge design, but we’re also experts in education and opportunity.
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.
A record 522,000 manufacturing jobs remained open in the United States in September 2019. So if you hear someone say, “Where are the jobs around here,” they probably haven’t considered the urgent need for more skilled laborers in manufacturing -- especially here in Western New York.
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.
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.
