CHINA – Media OutReach – 18 February 2020 – Southco Asia Ltd., a subsidiary of Southco Inc., a leading global provider of engineered access solutions such as locks, latches, captive fasteners, electronic access solutions and hinges/ positioning technology, has expanded its line of constant torque hinges with a new version that supports additional friction and reduced weight in limited-space applications.
Depending on the torque requirements of the application, Southco’s E6-10E Constant Torque Hinge with Extended Housing enables the resistance of two hinges to be packaged into one hinge, saving weight without compromising functionality.
Southco’s E6-10E Constant Torque Hinge with Extended Housing provides increased asymmetric torque for applications requiring maximum friction in small spaces. The lightweight E6-10E Constant Torque Hinge with Extended Housing features a lower profile than Southco’s standard E6 series, making it an ideal solution for a variety of transportation applications with reduced packaging space, including aircraft seating and automotive storage compartments.
Like Southco’s standard E6 series, the E6-10E offers a long cycle life and requires no maintenance or adjustment over the lifetime of most applications.
“The new E6-10E Constant Torque Hinge with Extended Housing offers a key performance improvement for limited-space applications,” said Global Product Manager Stewart Beck. “This high-performance hinge increases the amount of torque that can be packaged in the available space, saving application weight, while also helping to lower overall equipment costs.”
