Torque Inserts

Reell’s standard and custom torque inserts are a novel positioning product that are designed to be press fit or over-molded in customer applications.  They use patented ReellTorq® clip technology to provide a smooth feel of quality and consistent torque over long life without the visible appearance of a hinge.

  • Press-fit into a round hole for quick, easy installation.
    Reell TI-300 Series Torque Inserts feature a powdered metal package configuration designed to be press-fit into round holes for quick and easy installation in just one step, eliminating the need for mounting hardware, reducing the overall cost of customer solutions, and enhancing cosmetics by removing the visible appearance of a hinge.

  • Reell TI-100 Series Torque Inserts

    Glass-filled nylon housing designed for press-fit.
    Designed to be press fit into a variety of materials, Reell’s TI-100 Series of torque inserts feature a molded glass-filled nylon package configuration with 360° of rotation.

  • Reell TI-200 Series Torque Inserts

    Designed for plastic over-molding. Features asymmetric torque.
    Designed to be plastic over-molded, the TI-200 is available in two package sizes, with torques from 1.5-8.0 N-m (2.2-70.8 lb-in).  It features Reell's "differential" torque, which provides 100% of the specified torque in one direction and 60% of the specified torque in the opposite.  This makes it ideal for vertical positioning applications where gravity is acting upon the positioned object.

  • Small Profile Torque Insert
    Reell TI-C5M Torque Insert features consistent long-life performance in a compact single-fin mounting profile.  It's 5mm housing is small enough for modern consumer electronics applications and it's 30,000 cycle life provides long lasting, smooth feel performance of ReellTorq® technology.
