Southco’s E6-600 constant-torque position-control hinge, which features increased torque and lightweight aluminum construction, allows the user to hold a door or panel securely at any desired angle, and it delivers twice as much torque to support larger, heavier items. The E6-class positioning hinges provide constant resistance throughout the entire range of motion and deliver reliable positioning and consistent operating efforts. They are preset during manufacturing and are guaranteed to provide performance without adjustment for the lifetime of the application. A wide range of application needs are met via their multiple sizes, materials, and torque ranges.
