Product Spotlight: KATO Hexatorq Hinges

KATO Hexatorq Hinges set the industry standard for reliable and cost effective motion control. Hexatorq hinges feature an innovative metal and plastic resin hinge design which provides extraordinarily smooth motion as well as unparalleled durability.

Spring Hinges vs. Hexatorq Hinges

Conventional spring hinges tend to lose their lubrication and damage mating parts by seizing up in high temperature environments. In contrast, the Hexatorq design, utilizes modern engineered plastic resin that requires no lubrication. In fact, in an elevated temperature application, KATO Hexatorq Hinges experience a predictable drop-off in torque and then return to preset torque values after a minimal cool down period. This means NO damage to expensive components!
