To enable long-lasting customised operation with increased corrosion resistance, Southco has expanded its range of E6 Hinges with the introduction of the new E6 Plastic Constant Torque Hinge.
Designed for use in corrosive environments, the new E6 hinge has been constructed with robust plastic and a stainless steel shaft over moulded in nylon. Compared to typical hinges, the E6 features anodised aluminium end caps that provide excellent corrosion protection, increasing options for use. This will save the time and associated costs required to replace corrosion damaged hinges.
There are additional cost savings to be made as the E6 hinge eliminates the need for secondary supports to hold hinged components in position.
Constant torque position control hinges deliver constant resistance throughout the entire range of motion. This enables you to easily position your mounted components such as doors, display screens and medical equipment applications, and hold them securely at any required angle.
The E6 Position Control Hinge offers the benefits of constant torque technology combined with contemporary styling in a lightweight, economic package. The plastic E6 series is available with both symmetric and asymmetric torque, offering a more refined feel in any application without compromising on quality and precision.
Features & Benefits:
Global Product Manager Todd Schwanger adds, “The plastic E6 Constant Torque Position Control Hinge offers improved corrosion resistance and customised torque options for a wide variety of applications, and eliminates costs associated die cast options or installing additional support components to maintain consistent positioning.”
Discussing how the new plastic E6 series from Southco benefits Zygology customers, Sales Manager Richard Avery said, “The importance of reliable constant torque hinges cannot be overstated. Their use in the automotive, aerospace, marine and medical industries alone shows how important their quality, reliability, durability and precision is.
“The introduction of the new plastic E6 and its usability in corrosive environments will provide customers with a solution that not only has a long life cycle without the loss of torque, but also removes the costs of previously required additional components.
“The new E6 hinges from Southco are a win-win for our customers.”
