Today, that means:  Free new-product development, free engineering assistance and free engineered samples/prototypes, new State-of-the-Art ERP/MRP Lean process management systems provide shorter average lead times, certified TQM program assures 100% defect-free parts, and inventory management programs covering all inventory-flow types (ex: JIT, Kanban, etc.).

Continuous Piano Hinge Characteristics

May 17, 2018

Continuous hinges, commonly known as “piano hinges,” are hinges that are at least five inches long.  Continuous piano hinges are:

  • Strong throughout their entire lengths, increasing product rigidity by supporting the full length of applications
  • Easier and more precise to align than two or more butt hinges
  • Attractive and uniform in appearance
  • Smooth in pivotal action, providing optimal axial rotation
  • Low-cost and economical, lasting through many swing cycles

Additional Continuous Piano Hinge Design Information

April 30, 2018

We frequently see blueprints for complex fabricated continuous piano hinges.  Such customized hinges will, inevitably, be more expensive and have longer lead times.  Since we know that pre-design evaluation of hinge options can save our customer and potential customers time and money, we encourage you to contact us during the design stage.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Steps to Designing Your Custom Piano Continuous Hinge

April 9, 2018

To design products using time and cost-saving standard continuous piano hinges, follow these steps:

  • Before designing, take a moment to consider the requirements of your continuous piano hinge:  What type of metal and finish should it have?How and where will the hinge be attached to the assembly?How long and wide does the hinge need to be?  How strong?
  • Review gauge, metal, width, and length.
  • Develop blueprints and specifications for your product assembly and hinge.
            We are here to help every step of the way!
