Laptop Hinges

I haven’t had to design a product with a laptop or flip phone style hinge for a long time. The supplier that used to be my go to company is apparently bankrupt.

Does anyone out there have a connection for a micro-hinge that ideally will “click” when the clamshell is opened? It could be a straight friction hinge, but not as ideal.


My supplier of friction hinges is in Taiwan. I’ve also used in the US but they were not so competitive (at least in 2010). I’ve used both for micro-hinges and larger tilt mechanism hinges, communication was easier with Taiwan to be honest but they both make good products.

Fantastic, thank you lasercow…and welcome to the discussion forums :wink:
