Rotary dampers work by rotation around a single axis. The oil inside the damper produces a damping torque on the movement of the moving parts.
In rotary dampers, the size of the torque depends on oil viscosity, on the distance between the moving parts, and on their surface area.
In addition, the torque of the damper changes depending on the temperature. Usually, the higher the temperature, the lower the torque. The lower the temperature, the higher the torque.
Our dampers offer less performance variation on these parameters than other products with the same characteristics.
Thanks to the absorption of external shocks and vibrations, the fluid inside the rotary dampers allows for the controlled opening and closing of lids and doors, slowing the movement and controlling the impact against the surface on which they are installed.
Rotary dampers are applied to a wide range of products, such as cabinets, vehicles, toilet seats, bins, coffee machines, gas stations, lawnmowers and any device with a lid or hinge that needs to open and close frequently, quietly, and smoothly.
There are also many applications in the automotive sector: handles, fuel doors, glasses holders, cup holders and many others.
Easy to install and maintenance-free, rotary dampers can be felt without being seen: they are, in fact, small, almost invisible dampers that protect the delicate components of the product on which they are installed.
