Dampers and Economics

blog picWe often come across problems that are natural to product design.Specifically features verses cost.If a customer is willing to pay the higher price to add a high end feature like a damping hinge then it usually is a good idea to include it in the design. This can become a double edged sword. Once the products in the market and competition starts to appear will the damping hinge become a cost cutting item? Maybe customers are willing to pay for a quality item and keeping the damping feature incorporated into the design will keep you ahead of the competition. Only the sales and marketing team will be able to determine that. One thing we know for sure is that  incorporating a rotary damper is a feature that is both a safety item and a wow feature that adds the feeling of class and high end to any product .
