Industrial Hinge Manufacturers: Machining Capabilities
Industrial hinge manufacturing isn’t easy — there’s a lot of sweat involved in making custom motion control and counterbalance hinges.
But, arguably, a lot less sweat than there used to be, especially since our manufacturing technology has greatly improved with the introduction of CNC-capable machines.
Industrial hinge manufacturers — and manufacturers in virtually every other industry — have increased their efficiency and their output with the incorporation of computerized machining processes.
At Weber Knapp, we manufacture hinges and ergonomic office accessories; it’s true. But here’s a secret — many hinge manufacturers in the USA also provide custom industrial machining options, allowing customers to outsource more of their manufacturing needs to a single trusted source. For example, we’ve made things like:
- Handles and components for furniture
- Draft tap handles – laser cut
- Components for bar feeders
- Custom turnings

What Is CNC Machining and Manufacturing?
A lot of people talk shop about CNC machining and manufacturing, but what does that actually mean?
CNC stands for computer numerical control, and simply means that the machines are operated with a series of computer inputs instead of by manual labor. This eliminates a lot of human error to create a more uniform product, and increases the speed of machining.
Take a look below to see what kind of manufacturing processes benefit from CNC!
Outsourcing Your Industrial Machine Needs
We know how manufacturing gets — busy. Sometimes it’s easier to outsource your machining needs rather than keep them in-house.
By choosing a manufacturing partner, you can
- Cut down on lead time
- Decrease overhead from expensive equipment or training
- Get high-quality, customized parts from engineering design experts
- Reduce capacity overload on your facilities
Custom Machining Capabilities
While heavy-duty hinges and CNC machining may be a big part of what we do at Weber Knapp, it’s not the only thing we can do!
Take a look at some of our other machining and design capabilities, because there’s a lot more a full-service manufacturer can do than simply fire up a lathe or laser cutter.
