Reell Precision Manufacturing Expands It's Range of Position Control Offerings

Share Article

Two new technical innovations make Reell's position control technology available for a wider range of applications.

Reell's patent-pending Roller Lock mechanism provides high density torque that won't release under load, but remains easy to disengage.

We are excited about applying the world's best torque technology to a wider range of new applications

Reell Precision Manufacturing, a world leader in small package position control, is pleased to announce the development of the Reell Roller Lock and the Reell Micro Clip, innovations that make Reell's patented position control technology available for both larger and smaller applications than had previously been possible.

The patent pending Roller Lock mechanism uses technology developed by Reell to provide bi-directional, infinite positioning control with high holding forces and low freeplay. The Roller Lock does not release under load, but still requires only a small trigger force to disengage. When combined with other technologies such as torsion springs and ReellTorq® clips, the Roller Lock allows smooth and elegant positioning of heavy objects. It is currently being used in the office furniture market, and Reell expects additional applications in transportation and medical fields.

The Reell Micro Clip is another breakthrough in the miniaturization of Reell's ReellTorq® technology. Fitting into package sizes as small as 3mm, it makes the superior quality feel and consistent high performance that customers have come expect in all ReellTorq® products available for today's increasingly small consumer electronic devices. Having been successfully tested to over 50 million cycles, the Micro Clip also does not compromise on Reell's hallmark long-life durability. Applications featuring the Micro Clip are expected in the coming year.

"With these two innovations Reell has expanded the places where our technology can be used," say Jack Field, VP of Global Sales and Customer Service. "We are excited about the opportunity to apply the quality feel and long-life performance of the world's best torque technology to a wider range of applications."

Reell Precision Manufacturing provides high-quality innovative solutions to transmit torque, control angular position and protect delicate components from excessive force. Combining the worlds most precisely controlled torque technology with the industry's most experienced engineering team provides a perfect product fit in customer applications. Reell's patented technology is widely used in the consumer electronics, automotive, office automation, and medical industries.
