TorqMaster International announced today that it has started shipping units of its new SB-500 friction hinge series. The hinges offer a torque ranges of 20 to 70 inch-pounds, with stainless steel shafts, nickel plating of friction bands, and additional corrosion protection available upon request.
Gary Bebell, President of TorqMaster International, said, “Our customers came to us requesting friction hinges which require high torque values in smaller sizes, in order to meet their product specification needs. We see an increase in new medical device applications requiring screens that adjust as well as increased demand for friction hinges being used for lids and covers. Therefore, we designed the new SB-500 series to meet and exceed the demands required of these new products being designed.”
According to the company’s website, the SB-500 hinge series page offers 2D drawing and 3D model files to help product engineers, mechanical engineers, product buyers and others who need helpful information to ensure that the TorqMaster hinges meet their requirements. Features of the new SB-500 hinge series include 360-degree shaft rotation, one way clutch, long cycle life standards, and a smooth steady feel for the hinge over the life of the product.
