MMT Friction Hinge Advantages

I would like to highlight some advantages of our friction hinge design. The materials we choose have been picked because of their specific mechanical characteristics when interacting with other materials. The difference between the peak static torque and dynamic torque is minimal, the reason for this is to achieve a very smooth motion profile which reduces stresses on mounting components made of plastic, such as laptop screen housings. We feel strongly that this feature is critical. The cost of broken laptop screens can be substantial. Another feature we design is a long cycle life. No lubrication is needed for our friction hinges. The characteristics of the mating frictional components have a coefficient of friction needed for the proper breakaway torque suitable for laptop screens and any other similar component you would like to pivot, we are not restricted to using this design technique for computers only. Industries like the medical field, energy, computer and industrial can use our friction hinges. Life cycles of 30,000 to 50,000+ with out failure are common.
