We have been involved in an aerospace project where space inside the cabin is at a premium. Our specific flavor of friction hinges is suited specifically for small doors, panels, lids and safety covers that cannot rattle around or pivot without someone physically moving them. When they are moved it is without any noise any can be placed in any position. So during take offs or landings, the won’t move from their position. All of our friction hinges are grease free and can have a full range of torque capabilities. Depending on the diameter and length we can achieve 1 through 40 in-lbs. ¬†Larger is also possible. So please contact us for a free consultation at www.mmtech.us or 203-406-7900
