Reell’s RT70 enables precise, consistent torque and position control, the manufacturer says
PAUL, Minn.—Reell Precision Manufacturing, a company specializing in small package motion control, has introduced a new dual-ended attachment option for a series of position hinges. The RT70 position hinge with dual-ended mounting attachment enables a single hinge to be used in place of two, reducing the cost and weight of an assembly and facilitating faster production with fewer parts to handle and install, the manufacturer said in a release.
The RT Series of hinges is used in especially small assemblies. It incorporates unique engineering in a compact design to hold the angle of mounted components reliably in any position. The RT70 is reported to be suitable for demanding applications requiring 3.0 to 8.0 lb-in of holding torque. It is widely used in consumer electronics, mobile device and tablet stands, medical devices, and other industries where precise position control for components is necessary and critical, according to Reell.
The attachment is available in flag, straight, and exposed knurled shaft configurations.
The RT70, like all RT Series hinges, uses ReellTorq® clip technology to provide precise and consistent torque with a fully qualified life of 50,000 cycles. It is also said to provide smooth operating feel.
Jim Brown, global product line manager for Reell Precision Manufacturing, commented on the addition of the dual-ended attachment option to the RT Series, calling the RT70 a key part of Reell’s portfolio.
“The addition of dual-ended mounting configurations to this popular line creates more options for design engineers to easily solve position control challenges and improve the user’s experience,” Brown said in the release.
Reell Precision Manufacturing provides components engineered to transmit torque, control angular position, and protect delicate components from excessive force.
