Free Interactive App Identifies Solutions


An interactive online app introduces a user-friendly resource to pinpoint ideal hinge and torque insert product solutions matching application requirements. The “Hinge Selection Guide” is a free online tool that opens an interactive window to designate an application’s parameters, calculate the torque and rotational angle required for the hinge or torque insert, and ultimately identify the Reell products best suited for the job.  Reell’s innovative technology solutions transmit torque, control angular position, and protect delicate components from excessive force.


Users are prompted to choose the type of Reell device (hinge or torque insert, as well as the mounting configuration) desired for the application.  Then users input a torque profile (symmetric, differential, or one-way), the necessary range of motion (up to 360-deg.), and preferred material (aluminum, stainless, nylon, or zinc).  The app then calculates torque consistent with supplied end-product weight and length.  Based on all the information, the app filters the entire Reell product line to arrive at the appropriate recommendations for the application.


The app further enables users to access Reell’s standard catalog products, link to Reell’s website for exploring additional resources and confirm technical product specifications, and connect quickly with Reell’s application engineers for a personal consultation and rapid response to inquiries.


The app can be downloaded at and is available in multiple languages (English, German, French, and Chinese).  A mobile tablet version will be available in the next few months.
