Durable lightweight hinge features the easy-opening performance of 'One-way' torque technology

Saint Paul, MN April 4, 2017

Reell Precision Manufacturing, a world leader in small package position control, is proud to announce the introduction of its latest positioning innovation, the MH18 Position Hinge.

The MH18 is the first molded nylon hinge to features Reell's 'One-way' torque technology which eliminates nearly all the torque required to move the hinge in one direction, without compromising the holding force in the other.  This makes the MH18 ideal for vertical adjustment applications, where it holds solidly against gravity in the downward direction, while remaining easy to adjust in the upward direction.  It is available torques range from 4.0 to 8.0 N-m, configured for high torque in either the forward or reverse direction.

Applications include enclosure doors, covers, monitors, hatches, and many other components requiring ideal position control and adjustability in the industrial, medical, office, and consumer electronics equipment marketplace.

The glass filled nylon housing is strong, lightweight and cosmetically clean, making it suitable for application where the hinge will be visible to the end user.  The hinge also uses patented ReellTorq® clip technology to deliver precise and consistent torque with a fully qualified life of 20,000 cycles, while providing a smooth and unmatched operating feel.

Global Product Line Manager John Schannach is excited about the introduction of the MH18. "The MH18 is a great addition to our portfolio.  It provides Reell's premium 'One-way' torque performance in a lightweight and attractive package that nicely compliments out existing product line. It enables us to deliver Reell's perfect fit solutions to a wider range of customer applications."
