The thickness of a hinge leaf.
The portion of a hinge extending laterally from the knuckle and which usually revolves around a pin.
The dimension from the center of the pin to the outer edge of the leaf.
The overall dimension of the leaves measured perpendicular to, or across, the pin.
Rod running the length of the hinge. The pin holds the leaves of the hinge together.
The hollow circular part at the joint of a hinge through which a pin is passed. The knuckle is often called a loop, joint, node, or curl.
The nominal or typical dimension of the knuckle measured parallel to the pin.
The length of the leaves measured parallel to the pin.
The dimension from a point on the knuckle to the same point on an adjacent knuckle on the same leaf.
The minimum dimension between the outer face of the knuckle and the opposing edge of the cutout over the hinge's entire range of pivotal movement.
The amount of axial movement between the leaves.
SPECIAL PIERCING AND SWAGING HINGES
PLAIN OR STANDARD ASSEMBLY
This is a surface-type hinge. The leaves lie flat in the same plane when in the open position. Unless otherwise indicated, this type of hinge will be furnished.
The forming of one or both leaves toward or beyond the center of the pin, swaging slightly increases leaf width.
BOTH LEAVES HALF-SWAGED
Both leaves are swaged approximately one-half the pin diameter with a minimum clearance between leaves when parallel.
ONE LEAF HALF-SWAGED
One leaf swaged one half the pin diameter.
ONE LEAF FULL-SWAGED
One leaf swaged equal to the pin diameter and both leaves parallel when in a closed position.
One leaf swaged to simulate reverse assembly. Leaves will not close to a parallel position.
Forming one or both leaves away from the center of the pin. Offsetting slightly decreases leaf width.
Illustrated below are some of the more common designs.
We can match your specific needs on butt hinges with either tight or loose pins, depending on your needs.
Formed hinge leaves can be supplied in a variety of configerations. Dimensions should be taken from the pin center line and inside of forms. Several examples are shown below.
Unequal leaves are available on all hinges. Widths are measured from the pin center line to the leaf's outer edge.
MULTIPLE PIN HINGES
Multiple pin hinges allow for double action, as required
