A major concern for years has been consumer product safety and safety in public areas. Any moving member of a consumer product is a potential application for a friction hinge or rotary viscous damper. These two products can prevent pinch points, slamming, swinging and dropping of heavy components. Pinch points especially in child applications, can preclude a product from ADA compliance which can actually shut a facility down from operating. Product designers must keep safety as a top priority. Make sure any of your designers keep a keen outlook for potential pinch points they may inadvertently have missed. This is something that can set a products design from progressing. As a full service design engineering and manufacturing facility Mechanical Motion Technologies LLC can help guide you through the pitfalls of consumer product design.
