Increase your efficiency!

Hinge connections are an important and interesting concept.

In the production area hinges are mostly produced of metal and allow the ability to connect two parts together in a flexible way.
It doesn‘t matter if a door has to be fixed in a door frame or if two wooden parts have to be connected:
one hinge can make everything possible!

Typically hinges are produced on a punching machine with 2 tools:
The first tool produces the embossing (min. 2 hits). Afterwards the „rounding“ of the hinge is carried out with the second tool.

The innovation at PASS Stanztechnik AG improves now the efficiency for producing hinges: the

ps:®2in1-hinge

Both metal forming sequences can be carried out with only ONE single tool producing a hinge.

The ps:®2in1-hinge consists of two tools: a spring-loaded part and a solid part. The embossing will be made with the first hit by the spring-loaded part of the tool. The second hit is taking the height of the sheet into consideration. Afterwards the tool makes a rotation of 180° in order to use the solid part of the tool to produce a hinge.
