Reell makes folding meal trays easy to open and close

Combining two Reell TI-C5M Torque Inserts creates dual-axis fold over motion.

Aircraft and rail meal trays that fold open into position require a small, multi-axis hinge to enable fully folding over on itself for compact storage. Reell's TI-C5M provides the necessary torque for smooth motion and eliminates loose feel and noise.


Adjustable Digital Displays

Reell's high torque density ensures secure position control even in bumpy, rugged applications

As sports vehicles like motorcycles, ATVs and snowmobiles shift from analog dials to screens and digital displays, accurate and reliable position control enables riders to easily adjust and view screens to improve safety. Reell's reliable positioning technology holds firmly in place, even with the high shock and bump forces found in powersports applications.
