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

Saint Paul, MN  December 12, 2018

Reell Precision Manufacturing, a world leader in small package position control, is proud to announce the introduction of its latest positioning innovation, the TI-160 Torque Insert.

The TI-160 is the first molded torque insert to feature 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 TI-160 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 6.0 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 TI-160’s glass-filled nylon housing is strong and lightweight and it is designed to be press fit into a variety of materials.  Because of it’s unique inline mounting, the TI-160 is concealed from the user when installed.  This can reduce the overall package size and improve the aesthetics of the application.

The TI-160 features ReellTorq® clip technology to deliver precise and consistent torque with a fully qualified life of 25,000 cycles, while providing the smoothest operating feel of any positioning solution on the market

Global Product Line Manager John Schannach is excited about the introduction of the TI-160. "The TI-160 is a great addition to our portfolio.  It provides Reell's premium 'One-way' torque performance in a lightweight nylon molded torque insert that nicely compliments out existing product line. It enables us to deliver Reell's perfect fit solutions to a wider range of customer applications."
