INFLEX

OBE GmbH & Co. KG

INFLEX - OBE - key supplier for hinges & safety screws presents at SILMO 2019 a new concept in spring hinge technology: INFLEX – the spring hinge for INjected frames – powered with flexUno technology. This universal flex mechanism is designed for injected frames but can be used also for 3D printed frames. For these kinds of frames the shooting process in combination with a spring hinge on wire is not suitable. In fact INFLEX is not equipped with a wire but it is inserted in a rectangular cavity. In the target frames the cavity for the spring hinge can be already moulded or printed in the temple production. Then only the spring mechanism has to be inserted and assembled easily with a screw to the temple. The patented flexUno mechanism guarantees finally for a stability and reduced rocking of temples. A lot of front hinges enable then a vast possibility to design different frame types.
