Plastic hinges are stable and torque resistant

RoHS-compliant technopolymer plastic hinges from J.W. Winco are now offered with four indexing positions in metric sizes. The EN 222 hinges are stable and made of matte black glass fiber reinforced plastic with hinge pin of stainless steel, European Standard No. 1.4305.  During testing, the hinges were subjected to over 20,000 opening and closing cycles without the value of the resistant torque being affected with it being guaranteed to be resistant to a torque of ~3 Nm in four indexing positions.  Hinges are available in two types: 2x2 bore for DIN 7991-M6 countersunk screws, and 2x2 bore for ISO 4014-M6 countersunk screws.
