Rotary Hinge Dampers

Rotary Hinge Dampers

With OEMs always looking for ways to bring new efficiencies and lower cost to their operations, the ITT Enidine Inc. Rotary Hinge Damper brings both to the evolution of fixed stowage bin design. Traditional stowage bins employed linear actuators to provide controlled door opening. These actuators were part of a multi-part system, which also included actuator covers, mounting clevises, piano hinges, etc. By integrating the hinge, actuation and damping all in one high strength molded plastic device, ITT Enidine Inc. Rotary Hinge Dampers bring many benefits to bin designs.

ITT Enidine Inc. Rotary Hinge Dampers have been adopted by the world’s major OEMs for their new fixed stowage bin designs, but the concept is perfect for other high class interior applications as well. From small compartments in First Class cabins, to cockpit map cases, to entire business jet interiors, ITT Enidine Inc. Rotary Hinge Dampers can be designed to provide the aesthetics passengers want, with the cost and installation efficiency OEMs demand.
