Reell Precision Manufacturing, a world leader in small package position control, is proud to introduce the PHCA positioning hinge, an aluminum version of it's popular PHC positioning hinge line.

At only 19.5 grams, the PHCA is ideal for aircraft and other transportation applications where weight is an important concern. Featuring patented ReellTorq® clip technology, the PHCA has the same smooth feel and consistent long-life performance that are the hallmark of all Reell positioning products.

The PHCA features a conventional door hinge configuration with 270° of rotation, and is available with torques up to 2.79 N-m (24.7 lb-in).

Global Product Line Manager John Schannach is excited about the opportunities for transportation applications. "When every gram is counted against millions of miles traveled, simple calculations can convert fuel prices into significant cost savings. The PHCA hinge weight is reduced by more than 50% compared to a zinc or steel hinge of same footprint, which leads to savings that add up quickly."

The PHCA hinge is available starting in early December 2013. Please contact your Reell representative for more information or to request a sample.
