For 90 years, Sugatsune Kogyo Co. has manufactured and supplied high-grade architectural and industrial hardware worldwide. In 2016, the company expanded its operations to Canada through Sugatsune Canada Inc. One of the best reasons to work with this company is its unique Motion Design Tech, a product concept used to create hardware solutions with specialized movement for the opening and closing of flaps and doors.
Although opening and closing are common motions, they can easily become a source of stress and can create a vulnerable environment that is susceptible to mistakes. In some cases, an injury may occur through slammed closures, the manipulation of heavy doors, and the opening and closing of doors in a narrow space. Sugatsune’s Motion Design Tech offers five unique motions that make the opening and closing of flaps and doors easy, safe, and convenient.
The five motions of Motion Design Tech
Sugatsune often creates product designs that feature a combination of these various motions. An example of this is Sugatsune’s new lift-assist lid stay, The Aileron. This system offers a unique combination of power-assist, free-stop, and soft-motion functions and is used for top-opening and upward-opening cabinet applications.
