Laptop Mechanism Design

  • Mechanism design
  • Plastic mouldings
  • Friction hinge design

The Challenge

A customer had approached us for assistance in sourcing, integrating and designing the mouldings for a laptop-style consumer device.

The Solution

The outer elements of the case model were provided. We needed to source a friction hinge from a reputable supplier. The supplier provided the data sheet for the specific friction hinge which we used to create a 3D CAD model of it.

We were then able to integrate the product into the design using Solidworks and ensure any geometry clashes were avoided using virtual assembly tests within the CAD software.
