Hello, I’m Jim Ford, Southco’s Product Manager for Hinges and Positioning Technology (the hinge guy).
When most people think of hinges, they envision a simple door opening and closing motion. Add in a little dash of what we like to call “positioning technology” and suddenly the humble hinge becomes much more.
Want your light door to feel more substantial, want to eliminate vibration, need to make a heavy door lift with ease. Engineered positioning technology can do all that and more.
I’ve worked on “hinge” solutions for nearly two decades, and have seen applications expand well beyond basic hinges to include a wide range of mechanisms, including devices that provide tilt and swivel action, movable mounting arms for things like lights, cameras, and displays, as well as a lot of high tech “hinges”
Have an interesting positioning hinge or motion management challenge? Bring it here and we can start the discussion.
