The new MH-18 molded nylon position hinge from Reell Precision Manufacturing integrates “One-Way” torque technology developed exclusively by Reell to achieve reliable holding force in one direction while enabling easy adjustment with virtually no resistance in the other. This lightweight but strong hinge will especially suit vertical adjustment applications where components must be positioned and held against gravity and then repositioned upwardly as needed – without resorting to costly and potentially unsafe prop rods or similar devices that can obstruct or fail. 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.
- Hinge benefits from 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
- Conventional door-hinge mounting design and can be supplied with 4 N-m (35.4 lb-in), 6 N-m (53.1 lb-in), or 8 N-m (70.8 lb-in) of constant holding torque with minimal freeplay throughout a full 270º range of motion
- Configured for either forward or reverse torque direction
- Glass-filled nylon housing is durable without the weight associated with all-metal hinges
