Our hinge solutions: Friction hinges / Detent hinges / Damping hinges / Monitor mounts

The function of friction hinges is familiar from a laptop monitor — you bring it into the desired angular position, and it should stay there; there are variants for mounting or for installation in the axis of rotation. Latching hinges have dedicated holding positions — optionally with a damping.

We offer special hinge solutions:

  • positioning hinges (friction hinges, constant torque hinges) hold a part like e.g. a display or flip in the desired angular position; you know this from your laptop display; there are versions which are attached to the mechanics and others which are built into the turning axis (torque inserts). The torque can be identical for both directions or reduced or even (almost) zero for one direction. Special version are ready to use vesa tilt monitor mount or sperical joints with freedom to move in several directions, yet providing torque to hold position, they are very usful for positioning of cameras or mirrors and displays; positioning hinges can be found in many applications like monitor mounts, flaps and hatches or machine covers.
  • detent torque hinges: a detent torque hinge holds a door or flap in one of several predefined detent positions; the number and the angle of detent positions can vary. Optionally the Sugatsune (Lamp) detent hinges can be equipped with a damping mechanism to provide a soft-close-function. Also miniature detent hinges are aviable.
  • damping hinges: a damper hinge provides a soft-close-function for doors hatches and flapps, to reduce the closing speed and therefore the impact. Damper hinges are made of plastics, metal or stainless steel and we supply also miniature damping hinges.

This product range is supplemented by various stainless steel hardware products:

  • stainless steel industrial fittings: we supply stainless steel fittings and components, which are used in applications with higher demands high load regarding robustness, service life, resistance to chemicals or elegant design such as medical or industrial furniture or furniture for trains, yachts, mobile homes or airplanes.
