Innovation

Motion Design Tech is Sugatsune’s unique product design concept to provide specialized movement solutions.  Operability of doors or lids can be improved by incorporating the 5 types of motion in the work environment.  It can also improve ergonomics and efficiency of work that involves routine opening and closing movements, increasing the added value of the device and equipment.

Soft Motion

Sugatsune’s LapCon lid stays are ideal for a variety of cabinet applications, storage under bench seating, and  information terminals.  The lid stay arm holds the panel in place when in use, and will softly self-close when pushed shut. This is a perfect solution for quiet environments, and eliminates pinched fingers. Disk dampers are suitable for foodservice applications, such as those for self-serve bakery cases or for candy.  If the flap is pushed down slightly, it will close naturally and slowly by itself, without the need to lower by hand.

Free Stop Motion

Torque hinges can be adjusted and left at any angle, creating convenience for the user:

  • Holds lid open without additional support hardware, minimizing additional support hardware
  • Lid won’t slam shut, increasing user safety and reducing equipment damage
Torque hinges can be used in a variety of monitor applications to hold the display at a steady angle.  Applications include everyday uses such as multiple-monitor arrays, for screens on industrial equipment, and with payment terminals.

Lift Assist Motion

Lift assist hardware options enable users to lift large or bulky lids with a fraction of the energy they would otherwise need.  Especially useful for industrial equipment or appliances.

Detent Motion

Detent hinge hardware “clicks” between set positions at various angles, and holds panels open at the set position.  User is confident that the panel is secure by the clicking motion.

Unique Motion

Sugatsune’s LIN-X (“links”) laterally-opening hardware was created to open doors in a shallow radius, without obstructing the space in front of the cabinet.  Unique solution for kitchen islands, retail storage in narrow spaces, and industrial equipment access panels.
