Southco has expanded its line of constant torque hinges with a new version that supports additional friction and reduced weight in limited-space applications. Depending on the torque requirements of the application, Southco’s E6-10E Constant Torque Hinge with Extended Housing enables the resistance of two hinges to be packaged into one hinge, saving weight without compromising functionality.

The lightweight E6-10E Constant Torque Hinge with Extended Housing features a lower profile than Southco’s standard E6 series, making it an ideal solution for a variety of transportation applications with reduced packaging space, including aircraft seating and automotive storage compartments. Like Southco’s standard E6 series, the E6-10E offers a long cycle life and requires no maintenance or adjustment over the lifetime of most applications.

Southco’s E6-10E Constant Torque Hinge with Extended Housing provides increased asymmetric torque for limited space applications requiring maximum friction. This high-performance, low profile hinge saves application weight, while also helping to lower overall equipment costs.
